Alzheimer’s and Dementia Program
Alzheimer’s patients account for 60 to 80 percent of dementia cases. Dementia is a neurological condition with psychiatric symptoms and can be challenging to handle.
It is a progressive disease, where dementia symptoms gradually worsen over a period. In its early stages, memory loss is mild, but with late-stage Alzheimer’s, individuals lose the ability to carry on a conversation and respond to their environment.
At BHN we provide Dementia and Alzheimer care services based on the individual’s prognosis. Our care givers and staff are trained in understanding and handling basic dementia care needs, symptoms, and managing behavioural changes empathetically.
At the onset of the admission, we make it a point to enquire from the of the family of their loved one’s preferences, routines, habits etc. and then create a planned routine, suited around this information. Alzheimer’s and Dementia can leave a person overwhelmed when they are unable to achieve simple tasks like bathing, feeding, grooming, and dressing and this is where our care givers and staff ensure our guest receives the utmost care and assistance.
