Using dementia as the organizing principle when caring for patients with dementia and comorbidities.

Author information

Geriatric Services of Minnesota, St Cloud, USA.


Most patients with dementia have other chronic health concerns as well. Because dementia affects every aspect of a patient's life, its consequences need to be considered in each care decision, including the treatment of comorbid illnesses. In this article, we present a framework for organizing the care of such patients around their dementia, rather than around their other conditions.
