Treatment of chronic diseases in patients with dementia
Comorbidity is common in patients with dementia, and due to the nature of the dementia disease, patients with dementia have special challenges in relation to comorbidity. This article is about dementia and heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, urinary incontinence, falls, polypharmacy and chronic pain. Ongoing goal setting is important, and advance care planning is recommended. In general, comorbidity must be carefully and holistic assessed and managed according to each patient’s general status of health and stage of dementia. As the dementia develops, focus should primarily be on symptom control and comfort.
