Is there a treatment for dementia?

Hello Dr.
My mother in law is suffering from dementia since last 3 years. Now she is though stable but has forgotten most of the things leaving some faces of family members. Please suggest is there any cure treatment for the disease. And if any then please provide the details to get your appointment.

Psychiatrist 's  Response
dementia is a degenerative disorder where brain tissue gets into irreversible damage, making it very difficult to improve. however a detail investigation has to be made to lok into cause of dementia to find out a reversible cause of dementia like hypothyroidism, vitamin deficiency etc, in such cases dementia can improve. In other cases dementia is unlikely to improve, though disease progression can be halted with proper treatment with medication and lifestyle modifications.
