According to a new study by University College London (See Talk Therapy May Improve Depression, Anxiety in People with Dementia), talk therapy may be effective in managing depression and anxiety related to dementia. The researchers analysed data from 2.5 million participants who received talk therapy from 2012 to 2019, and found that 63% of participants with dementia experienced fewer depressive and anxiety symptoms following therapy, with 40% seeing their symptoms improve to the point that they were no longer diagnosed as having depression or anxiety. The findings offer insight into improved treatment approaches for people with dementia, which currently has no cure, but various treatment and lifestyle approaches can help individuals cope with the condition.
