Alzheimer’s Agitation

Alzheimer’s disease can involve much more than memory loss.  Many of those living with Alzheimer’s can develop the symptoms of agitation – pacing, wandering, restlessness, mood swings and repetitive behaviors.  Is your loved one prone to outbursts or verbally combative?  Is the person with dementia in your life repeating himself/herself, asking the same question over and over again?

Research is underway in New London evaluating an investigational medication for people living with Alzheimer’s agitation.  Caregivers participate in the study as well.  A caregiver may be the spouse of the person with Alzheimer’s, an adult child, or a trusted friend or companion.  Often times these individuals are bearing a heavy burden in dealing with such unpredictable behavior.

Over 5 million Americans are currently living with Alzheimer’s and this number is expected to rise.  Research plays an invaluable role in trying to find a way to better deal with the difficult symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease.  Someday, researchers hope to find a cure!
