Our team member, Dr. Martina Laczó, shared her knowledge and expertise at Alzheimer Cafe, an informal meeting place for caregivers, their loved ones with dementia, and professionals to share their concerns, experiences, and the joys of caring.
Dr. Laczó discussed what to do when memory problems arise, what the symptoms of dementia are, and whether there is a reliable “Alzheimer’s test”. She answered questions like: Which symptoms may indicate the disease that causes dementia syndrome? Where can I seek professional help in case of memory problems? How a comprehensive diagnosis of cognitive impairment is made. Whether it is possible to go for testing of memory and other cognitive functions as part of prevention.
