Meet Our Team Of Alzheimer's Psychiatrists

Overview

Alzheimer’s disease is a brain disorder that is progressive, and destroys slowly the person’s thinking skills, memory, communication skills and eventually their ability to carry out even the simplest tasks. One of the biggest challenges for a person with Alzheimer’s would be to communicate their needs effectively. They may have trouble finding words and end up using substitute words that make no sense. A counsellor can work with the patient and their family members to develop better ways of communication. Alzheimer’s affects not only the patient but also their family members, who may experience stress, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and burnout having assigned the role of a caregiver for their loved one who finds themselves more and more unable to take care of themselves. This can come along with the grief associated with losing their loved one to the disease, and the fear of the future with the loved one that because of the disease is far different than what one might have imagined. A counsellor can help you, as the caregiver, find ways to engage in the much needed self-care. This will help the family members maintain their overall health and wellbeing, while ensuring they are able to offer the best physical and emotional support to their loved one with the disease.

What are the benefits of Counselling for Alzheimer’s?

Counselling allows individuals with Alzheimer’s and their families cope with the negative impact of the disease on their lives by offering them a safe and supportive space to process the loss, develop ways to cope with the patient’s deteriorating abilities, get emotional support, find meaning in the situation, and plan for the future.

How many numbers of sessions are required?
