Dementia 


Background 

This guideline makes specific recommendations on Alzheimer's disease, dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), frontotemporal dementia, vascular dementia and mixed dementias, as well as recommendations that apply to all types of dementia. The guideline was developed in collaboration with the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE).

Dementia in Parkinson's disease shares a number of similarities with DLB. Although the evidence base for dementia in Parkinson's disease was not examined specifically in the context of this guideline, the recommendations for DLB may be useful when considering treatments for dementia in Parkinson's disease. NICE has also produced a clinical guideline on Parkinson's disease (available from NICE).
