Alzheimer’s Disease

Good geriatric health care is crucial, but all too often the mental health and behavioral aspects of geriatric wellness are overlooked because the patient needs so much physical health care. The Texas Behavioral Health team understands that geriatric health conditions like Alzheimer’s, other types of dementia, and Parkinson’s disease require both physical health care and dedicated mental and behavioral health care. They’re here to help you and your loved ones at four convenient Houston-area locations in Pearland, Pasadena, Friendswood, and River Oaks, Texas. Book an appointment online or by phone today.

What is Alzheimer’s disease?

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type of dementia, accounting for 60%-80% of all dementia cases. This disease causes memory, thought, and behavioral issues that typically increase gradually until they significantly impact day-to-day living.

Most Alzheimer’s disease sufferers are elderly, but younger-onset Alzheimer’s disease (previously called early-onset Alzheimer’s disease) affects men and women younger than 65. Although there’s no cure for Alzheimer’s disease at this time, there are many tools that greatly help with management.


How are Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias treated?

Texas Behavioral Health offers a variety of solutions, including psychotherapy and medication, for Alzheimer’s and other dementia sufferers. Medication options include Exelon®, Aricept®, Razadyne®, and Namenda®. Medicine helps alleviate symptoms while improving some behaviors as well.

The Texas Behavioral Health team also offers customized family therapy and support. Having a loved one with dementia can be frightening and stressful, so it’s important for the family of the patient to get the support and guidance they need, as well.
