My girlfiend was a ward nurse on an Alzheimers ward for many years. Now 
she is in the research side and is also a DCM (Dementia Care Mapping) 
trainer. http://www.brad.ac.uk/health/dementia/DementiaCareMapping/

Get early intervention medically. If possible get onto a drug trial, its 
a very fast moving feild out there. Gental reminiccance therapy will be 
of benifit. Play old songs from the past, adverts, tv programmes (theme 
tunes), items from the past, visit places with meaning from the past you 
get the picture. You could do this and then try to stretch the brain 
with newer stimuli learning.
