Diagnosing Dementia

Nov 27, 2022

When your relative starts to show signs of memory loss or odd behaviour it is very concerning.

You may wonder if they are beginning to show the signs dementia and what this means for them and their future care.

To diagnose dementia of which there are several forms your relative would need specific memory tests, blood tests and brain scans (MRI or CT scan).

Home Visit Healthcare has a network of professionals who can visit you or your loved one at home to undertake these tests and provide you or your loved one with the results, treatment and management plan.

Early diagnosis can be beneficial for several reasons:

  1. Early treatment
  2. Care planning
  3. Ability to access other resources

Alternatively, there may be other reasons for your relative’s memory and behavioural issues which are equally important to treat and manage.

Please get in touch if you have any further questions or want to explore how Home Visit HealthCare’s Independent Practitioners network can help you.
