How does Lynch’s pharmacy help?Those with Alzheimer’s, as well as those who care for them, need support and understanding to cope. We start by giving an overview of what Alzheimer’s Disease is including the causes, risk factors and disease progression. Then we discuss the various treatment options currently available, including medicines and therapies. Finally, we discuss How to Live with it. The various problems encountered by the patient and the carer are addressed and solutions provided. This section has been designed to make life for the patient and carer as problem free as possible.
What else do we do?
With a dedicated Alzheimer’s section on our website, you can start managing Alzheimer’s Disease regardless of the stage you are in. In the early stages the Mediterranean diet, resistance exercises and brain training have all been proven to be effective. In the later stages of Alzheimer’s Disease sensory therapies (art, music, touch), reminiscence therapy, jigsaws and card games all have scientific evidence recommending their use. We provide a quick start guide to get you up and running for each therapy.Join us online where we will put you through your paces with our specially designed exercise programmes.
