The Memory and Brain Health Clinic here at 25 Harley Street provides early detection and diagnosis of memory problems, implementing personalised prevention and treatment plans with a patient centred holistic approach to care. Our management strategy is based on the best and latest clinical evidence.
Our specialist Dr Singhai has extensive experience, knowledge and skills in the diagnosis and management of the various causes of memory problems ranging from Mild Cognitive Impairment to the common causes of Dementia such as Alzheimers’s Dementia, Vascular Dementia and Lewy Body Dementia.
Lewy Body Dementia is the third most common cause of dementia affecting approximately 1 in 5 people with dementia and yet is commonly not diagnosed as the majority of memory clinics both in the NHS and private memory clinics which are usually led by psychiatrists who are usually not sufficiently experienced in the diagnosis and management of Lewy Body Dementia.
Dr Singhai also has extensive experience in the management of the Behavioural and Psychological Symptoms related to Dementia (BPSD).
Behavioral and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD) include agitation, depression, apathy, repetitive questioning, psychosis, aggression, sleep problems, wandering, and a variety of inappropriate behaviors. One or more of these symptoms will affect nearly all people with dementia over the course of their illness and usually are quite distressing for the affected individual and their families often leading to loss of independence for the affected person and increased care needs.
These “BPSD” symptoms require careful skilled and diligent assessment and are amenable to various forms of treatment to improve quality of life for the patient and their families.
Many patients with cognitive problems often de compensate because of underlying medical problems which can be can only be identified and treated by a specialist who has experience in both cognitive disorders and general medicine experience which other specialists such as psychiatrists do not have.
We also have access to the latest cutting edge technology in this field using the latest imaging modalities such as FDG Pet scans and SPECT scans which are not widely available as well as latest software platforms for computerised cognitive assessments when indicated.
We can also advise about evidence based preventative strategies to reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer’s Dementia as well as slowing its progression including advice about the Bredesen protocol which is a dietary and lifestyle programme.
