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.
Very interesting talk. Dr. Jayashree talk gave me some knowledge about dementia, and how to manage it when someone is suffering from it. Talk has given some hope for family members as one can't cure but control it. - Chandani Karkera (attended talk on dementia awareness)
Excellent talk by Dr. Jayashree. She is a young and learned professional and people like me will be magnetized by the knowledge from her and her team. Keep it up. - Dr. VK Khanna (attended talk on dementia awareness)
