What Is Dementia-Related Psychosis?

If your loved one has been diagnosed with this disease, you'll want to know as much as you can about the causes and treatments for this condition.

There are multiple types of dementia, including Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and Lewy body dementia, according to George Grossberg, M.D., professor and director of geriatric psychiatry at Saint Louis University School of Medicine in Missouri. In each case, psychosis refers to a specific set of visual and audio false perceptions.
