Dementia is a neurodegenerative disorder in which there is deterioration in the cognitive functions to such an extent that it affects functioning on a daily basis. It is progressive in nature and affects memory, thinking, orientation, comprehension, calculation, learning capacity, language, and judgment.
We understand the challenges faced by families with loved ones with this disease. Our trained Care Specialists provide counseling on how to cope with dementia to family caregivers and conduct trainings at our centre for this purpose.
We have a Dementia Support group in Delhi NCR, which is a platform for caregivers to share feelings and support each other. We meet once a month at the Samvedna Senior Centre in Gurgaon (G-7 Oriental Villas, Sushant Lok Phase III, Sector 57, Gurgaon).
We also organize events and activities to create awareness about dementia and Alzheimer's Disease.
Your updates help a lot especially in a pattern with her mood changes. We took her to her doctor yesterday and he too recommended we keep her engaged and your sessions are helping a lot.
Good to hear mum is recalling a lot of memories that she was earlier unable to articulate. She seems much more self aware now as well. Thanks
