Treating dementia and Alzheimer's disease

There is currently no cure for dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, but research is ongoing to develop drugs, vaccines and other medical treatments. You can find out more about some of the different dementia treatments on the NHS website and from your GP.

Other treatments, activities and support – for the caregiver, too – are important considerations in helping people to live well with dementia.
