PEREZ MARTINEZ, Víctor T.. The nonpharmacological treatment of demential syndrome in primary health care. Rev Cubana Med Gen Integr [online]. 2005, vol.21, n.3-4. ISSN 0864-2125.

Dementia is a vital event so stressing for the family that can make it lose its optimal functioning and well-being. The nonpharmacological measures of attention to the patient and the main carer are the basic milestone of the treatment of dementia.The health team should be qualified to approach dementia from its early diagnosis to the individualized plan of action for each patient and carer. Since the initial phase, taking into account  the patient's capacity of understanding and  acceptance, he should receive gradual information about his disease and about the social resources available for his own needs and for the needs of his family. Our support and accesibility will be also guaranteed during the whole process.

Keywords : Milestone; basic; nonpharmacological; carer; support.
