Non-Pharmacological Management

It is increasingly recognised that pharmacological treatments for dementia should be used as a second-line approach and that non-pharmacological options should, in best practice, be pursued first. Non Pharmacological management include Standard therapies, Behavioural therapy, Reality orientation, Validation therapy etc. Reality orientation is one of the most widely used management strategies for dealing with people with dementia. t aims to help people with memory loss and disorientation by reminding them of facts about themselves and their environment. It can be used both with individuals and with groups. In either case, people with memory loss are oriented to their environment using a range of materials and activities. This involves consistent use of orientation devices such as signposts, notices and other memory aids.
