Neuropsychology and diagnosing dementia in your loved one

Neuropsychology and diagnosing dementia in your loved one

In this episode of Living with Alzheimer’s, I speak with Neuropsychologist Dr. Michael Lawrence, who is a board certified clinical neuropsychologist operating as the section chief and director of training in clinical neuropsychology and specializing in conducting evaluations of people with potential epilepsy, dementia and concussions.

Dr. Lawrence describes three major types of dementia, their typical symptoms and how they differ from each other. We also discuss the science of dementia diagnosis and how it has developed over recent decades. 

Afterwards, I speak with Ginger about her battle with recurrent urinary tract infections, how they have impacted her dementia symptoms and what we are doing to help prevent future UTIs.
