What symptom: There is no medication that really improves dementia symptoms. Confusion, and anxiety and some other symptoms are treatable, keeping routines and reminders of the familiar are orienting ans can help. Get a good medical evaluation to rule out any medical concerns and identify symptoms of concern that might be treatable
