Going through an assessment as early as possible can give you a number of advantages.
Another benefit of having an assessment is that if you are given a diagnosis of dementia, you will also usually be told what type of dementia it is (although this cannot always be confirmed). Examples of types of dementia include Alzheimer’s disease or vascular dementia.
Knowing which type of dementia you have can help you to understand your symptoms, predict how the dementia might progress, and know how to manage your symptoms.
For example certain drugs would be prescribed to help manage the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease that would not be prescribed for vascular dementia.
