Professional Team


We at reaDementia focus on writing high-quality articles that help anyone facing dementia, as well as their family members, friends and caregivers. Through our in-depth reviews and overviews of different conditions, symptoms and treatments, we try to contribute our knowledge via easy-to-digest content.

By covering the full spectrum of dementia, reaDementia is one of the most trusted resources that connects multiple professionals who share their expertise. We also guarantee that each content is up-to-date, meeting all the latest standards. Meaning, we frequently go through the articles and reviews and update them accordingly.

With the content that you find on reaDementia, you can learn all about:

  • All the various types of dementia (Alzheimer’s, vascular dementia, Lewy body dementia, frontotemporal Dementia, etc.)
  • Signs and symptoms
  • Different stages of dementia (early stages, middle stages and late stages)
  • Causes
  • Lifestyle changes and diet
  • Medications
  • Diagnosis
  • Treatments and care
  • Risk and prevention

While it is our main goal to become your most trusted asset to anything and everything dementia-related; it is not always all about us.

That said, we want to hear it from you, too. If you have a personal story to share regarding your experience with dementia, whether in your family or as a caregiver, feel free to share it with us.

By joining forces, we can create the largest and most powerful hub that will positively impact the community.
