Alzheimer’s Disease (AD), as one of most common dementia, seriously affected the health of over 65-years old people, has brought a heavy burden to the modern world. While there is still no effective therapy to revers or stop the progress of the disease. Nowadays, people are paying more focus on the care of this kind of disease. In the long-term of practice on dementia, especially on AD, Chinese medicine nursing technologies had the advantages of strong compatibility, non-invasiveness, and easy acceptance by patients and their families. Based on this, we reviewed the application of Chinese medicine nursing techniques on AD patients in an attempt to provide new methods and ideas for home care of AD patients. However, the exact role and mechanism of traditional Chinese medicine nursing technology need to be further studied in the future.
