Hi.. Alzheimer's disease is a gradually progressing condition... The medical drugs given are to slow this progression alone and not treat the condition.. He needs good family support and assistance with good nutrition to help in a better quality of life.. There is not treatment available yet to treat the present condition.. Stem cell research is on the process of finding a cure.. You may have to wait till then and follow with the supportive treatment...
