In brief: Patience & meds

There are some medicines in the market requiring prescription like Aricept and namenda, exelon, galantamine (galantamine hydrobromide) that in early alzheimer's may help to improve some of the deficits but they are no miracle drugs and some times no change is noted; besides they are expensive.
Most important thing is close supervision: meds, personal care, payments, orientation.... Check: alzheimers.Org.
