If you or a loved one is experiencing symptoms of mild cognitive impairment or mild dementia due to Alzheimer's disease, infusion therapy can be a viable option to consider. Continue reading to discover how this treatment can potentially enhance life quality for those with mild dementia.

Understanding Dementia

Dementia, also called major neurocognitive disorder, is an umbrella term used to describe a group of symptoms that impact memory, thinking, and social abilities severely. It can also cause changes in mood and behavior, making it challenging for individuals to carry out everyday tasks independently.

There are different stages of dementia: mild, moderate, and severe.

  • Mild dementia: At the early or mild phase, individuals may experience difficulty with memory recall, communication, problem-solving, and decision-making.
  • Moderate dementia: As dementia progresses to the moderate stage, symptoms become more evident and can interfere with daily activities such as personal care, work responsibilities, and social interactions.
  • Severe dementia: In its severe stage, individuals may lose their ability to communicate altogether and will require round-the-clock care.

What is Infusion Therapy?

Intravenous therapy involves administering medication directly into the bloodstream through a needle or catheter. This method bypasses the digestive system, allowing for quicker and more effective delivery of medication. It is typically used to treat conditions that cannot be adequately managed with oral medications alone.

At Suite Life, we have many patients receiving Leqembi infusions. Leqembi is a medication specifically designed for individuals with mild dementia due to Alzheimer's disease. It works by targeting beta-amyloid protein, which is known to build up in the brains of people with Alzheimer's and can contribute to cognitive decline.

Can Infusion Therapy Help with Mild Dementia?

While there is currently no cure for dementia, research and clinical trials have shown that infusion therapy can potentially improve cognitive function in individuals with mild dementia. In fact, Leqembi lowers beta-amyloid in the brain and reduces cognitive and functional decline in people living with early Alzheimer's disease.

Infusion therapy can also help manage other symptoms associated with dementia, such as agitation, depression, anxiety, and sleep disturbances. It can also reduce the need for multiple medications, making it a more convenient and streamlined treatment option.

The Benefits of Infusion Therapy

At Suite Life, we understand the impact that dementia can have on individuals and their families. That's why we offer infusion therapy as a potential treatment option for mild dementia. Here are some of the benefits of choosing infusion therapy:

  • Improved cognitive function: Infusion therapy with Leqembi can help slow down the progression of cognitive decline and potentially improve memory and thinking abilities.
  • Enhanced quality of life: By improving cognitive function, individuals with mild dementia may experience improved overall quality of life and better manage daily tasks independently.
  • Convenience: With infusion therapy, patients do not have to worry about remembering to take multiple pills throughout the day. Instead, they can receive their medication in one session at our infusion center.
  • Personalized treatment: At Suite Life, we work closely with each patient to develop a personalized treatment plan that meets their specific needs and goals. This individualized approach allows for more effective results.
