Meet Our Team Of Alzheimer's Psychiatrists

Overview

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative illness marked by increasing cognitive impairment, decreased activities of daily living, a range of behavioural problems, and neuropsychiatric symptoms. Electroconvulsive therapy for Alzheimer’s is a very effective (for particular and severe psychiatric diseases) and exceptionally safe current therapeutic option that induces a cerebral seizure through electrical stimulation while under general anaesthesia and muscle relaxation. In severe psychiatric diseases, electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is recognised as a highly effective and safe treatment approach with few side effects. Despite the rarity of major side effects, cognitive side effects, such as retrograde and anterograde amnesia, are common in the elderly. Acute cognitive deterioration is more common in people with prior cognitive abnormalities, however these deficits are reversible within weeks. Cadabams' expert therapists have years of experience and use the most up-to-date ECT equipment. This allows them to completely examine the client's current state and devise a treatment plan that is tailored to the client and their family's needs.
