In brief: Good Evaluation

Make sure that any "reversible causes" of cognitive problems have been ruled out.
Contact the local chapter of the alzheimer's association they will be an excellent guide to resources for family & the patient. Other than that, exercise, the mediterranean diet (rich in anti-oxidants), & trying new activities. The cholinesterase inhibitors are key to medication management.
