What Our Clients Have To Say

I have been consulting the doctors at Cadabam’s for over 6 months now for my father who has dementia. The doctors and staff at the hospital are very polite and kind and have provided excellent support and care right from day one. They not only explain the treatment plan thoroughly but also take out the time to make sure we understand complications and side effects that could come along the way. If you or your loved one is dealing with any mental health issues, I highly recommend Cadabam’s.

I’m very happy with the doctors, medical staff, and facilities at Cadabam’s hospital. Apart from being highly skilled in the field, the doctors and other medical staff are also very patient and supportive. Right from diagnosing the issue to prescribing medicines and creating the perfect treatment plan, they are with you every step of the way. I am glad I reached out to the team at Cadabam’s for counseling sessions.

I have observed great improvements in my son who has autism. The treatment plan created by the doctors has helped reduce the symptoms and he now is slowly learning new skills that assist him in his day-to-day activities. I cannot thank the team at Cadabam’s enough for giving my son the opportunity to have a happy and healthy childhood.

Excellent doctors, excellent team of medical staff, excellent facilities. From the people to the facilities and infrastructure, Cadabam’s has everything you need to address and improve your mental health illnesses.

I’m extremely grateful to the doctors and the entire team at Cadabams for creating an action plan to help me with my anxiety. I was finding it very difficult to maintain a social life and even focus on my career because of my severe anxiety. But now that I have been meeting with the team for over a year, I can proudly say that I have gotten much better at understanding and dealing with my anxiety. Thank you Cadabam’s!

My wife and I were not able to maintain a healthy relationship due to a lot of personal issues. Just when we thought our marriage would be over, we decided to seek couple’s counseling at Cadabam’s. The team of therapists and psychologists helped us build back our relationship and taught us how to communicate better and reduce conflicts in our day to day life.

I used to run around to consult different professionals for cmy son’s treatment. At Cadabam’s, it was so much more convenient. From psychiatrists to rehabilitation, they had it all. I am really happy with how they have helped my son and I can see immense changes in him.

What really struck me was how polite and understanding the professionals were. We availed home care services from Cadabams and the professional was so understanding. They took their time, spoke to all the members, and gave us an in-depth understanding of the illness. We have now started coming in for regular sessions. It’s worth it!

It was the first time we had faced something like this. Our daughter was going through immense strain and wasn’t responding to anything we said. That was when we contacted Cadabams, and we were surprised by how prompt they were with treatment. They treated our situation as an emergency and took immense care of our daughter.

What is Alzheimer’s disease?

Do you see that your mother seems to have forgotten what she cooked best? Or have you seen your father having difficulty recognizing family members? Is any of the senior family member having difficulty with performing common daily tasks or being forgetful? These may be signs of Alzheimer’s Disease.

In Alzheimer’s disease (AD), there is progressive degeneration of memory and other cognitive abilities. In simple word, Alzheimer’s disease causes difficulty in memory, reasoning, thinking and communication, these problem develop slowly and only gets worse over time. Alzheimer’s is the most common type of Dementia and is usually seen to occur after the age of 65, although there are cases of early onset at the age of 40.

In AD, abnormal structures, plaques and tangles, form in the brain which prevents brain cells to communicate with each other, eventually leading to death of the brain cell. This is usually seen to initially occur in the parts of brain that are responsible for memory, which later spread to other areas. The effects of AD makes the patient eventually unable to carry out their normal daily activities.

Example, initially the patient might not remember where they kept their keys later they might not recognize their own family members. There are different types of Alzheimer’s disease depending on the part of the brain area affected.

Risk factors for Alzheimer’s

Advancing age is known as the greatest risk factor for AD. Experts are yet to discover the exact reason as to why with age the risk of AD dramatically increases. Alzheimer’s Disease is seen to run in families. If an individual has AD, the family members are more likely to get AD than other people whose family members do not have it. This could be either because of genetic or environmental factors.

There is currently no cure for AD, although there are treatments, therapies, and medications available that help manage the symptoms better. They slow down the progression of the symptoms. For Alzheimer’s disease treatment, professional help is necessary. There are professional teams available to help and support the patient and the family. These teams include a psychiatrist, a clinical psychologist, a physician, a nurse, and a caretaker. All of them address the patient’s needs according to their specialties. The medication given helps increase motivation and improve concentration, it also enables the patient to carry out daily activities such as cooking, dressing, etc.

There are possibilities that the patient may develop other mental illnesses such as anxiety and depression. In these cases, counseling and therapies such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) can be beneficial. In extreme cases, sometimes family members are not able to provide the necessary facilities and settings. For these cases, there are rehabilitation and home care centers available that give the patients the required services as well as the living settings that enable them to function adequately. To explore one of such facilities with experts in Alzheimer’s treatment in India, visit https://www.cadabamshospitals.com/, where a multispecialty team works together to help the person with Alzheimer’s and their family members cope with the symptoms.

As your parents age, it can be a challenge to figure out how to care the best for them, especially for those who are suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease. They may have health care needs or they just need help with day-to-day tasks that make elder home care the best option.

Alzheimer’s, while considered a disease of the elderly, actually can strike at any age. True, it more often affects older people, but the onset can vary enough that everyone needs to know what the condition is and what can be done for it. For every person who is stricken with this disabling condition, there are family members and friends who are faced with difficult decisions regarding their daily care.

What are the treatment options?

Drugs

The medications for Alzheimer’s disease treatment available today can help for some time with symptoms related to memory and cognitive changes.

Below mentioned drugs are used for the treatment of cognitive symptoms of Alzheimer’s in India.

Cholinesterase inhibitors: Examples of cholinesterase inhibitors include rivastigmine (Exelon), donepezil (Aricept), and galantamine (Razadyne). These drugs are known to improve neuropsychiatric symptoms in individuals, such as psychosis, depressive mood, or depression. They work by improving cell-to-cell communication by preserving a chemical messenger in the brain which is depleted in people with Alzheimer’s.

Some of the side effects that may result from taking cholinesterase inhibitors are nausea, diarrhea, sleep troubles, loss of appetite, etc. It may lead to serious side effects like cardiac arrhythmia in people if they have cardiac conduction disorders.

Memantine: Memantine affects the brain cell communication network and works to reduce or slow down the progression of Alzheimer’s disease symptoms. Sometimes, memantine may be prescribed along with a cholinesterase inhibitor drug. It may produce rare side effects like confusion and dizziness.

To help manage the behavioral symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, other medications such as antidepressants may also be given.
