SAANS interesting Case series:One should not simply call progressive dementia without attempting good comprehensive CBT and Rehabilitation therapy

§This is a 70 year old vascular dementia presented behavioural and personality changes. There was a history of huge psychological trauma when he suddenly lost his young son. He is diabetic with early nephropathy changes. He had a old CVA and presented with altered sensorium and hyponatremia.  His glycemic  control was good .He responded to sodium correction and improving with our SAANS Rehab and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
