Rehabilitation is effective for Alzheimer’s in maximizing ease of living, coping skills, and enhancing potential independence in the AD patient and thereby improving the quality of life of the patient and their family.
The benefits include a structured environment, provision of neuropsychological and other modern therapies, regular appointments with medical and mental health professionals, infrastructure with aids and equipment facilitating ease of living for the AD patient, utmost care and constant supervision, counselling sessions with the patient and the family, and helping the family post rehabilitation know how to take care of the patient at home.
Evaluation of the patient’s diagnosis and status is first done by the multidisciplinary team of professionals, after which a treatment plan is devised with short term as well as long term goals. The family and the patient are educated about the nature of the disease, the treatment journey, what outcomes can be expected as a result of the treatment process, as well as what care continues to be given post rehabilitation to the patient.
