Typically 8-20 years. Average could be 7-10 years. It varies per person. There is different types of medication that can help slow it down a little bit, but it will never stop it.

If you are caring for someone with dementia, possibly of the alzheimer's type, just remember to have a sense of humor. Try not to correct them too much. There is a book out that is called "Alzheimer's from the Inside Out" that I found helpful. As is/was talking with friends who have been through it. Good luck!

There is no cure for either one of these medical problems. They do have medication to help aide in the confusion these patients have but that is all.
