Treatment Options for Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer's is a complex disease and there is no single treatment to prevent or cure it. Current Alzheimer's treatments focus on several different areas, including:

  • Helping Alzheimer's patients maintain mental function
  • Managing behavioral symptoms
  • Slowing the advance of the disease

The Layton Aging & Alzheimer's Disease Center at OHSU offers a variety of treatment options for people diagnosed with Alzheimer's. We provide medication therapy for Alzheimer's patients, early stage support, and tips for dealing with behavioral problems associated with Alzheimer's disease.

Managing and treating behavioral symptoms of Alzheimer's disease
Scientists are studying the underlying disease process and making progress in understanding and identifying ways to prevent or delay Alzheimer's disease. Interventions other than medication include:
  • Treatments for heart disease and type 2 diabetes
  • Cognitive (thinking) training
  • Changes in diet and physical activity
