Meet Our Team Of Alzheimer's Psychiatrists

Overview

Rehabilitation centers often incorporate cognitive-focused interventions which are goal-oriented and aim at helping people with Alzheimer’s Disease improve their everyday functioning and independence. As part of the intervention, evidence-based strategies are used that help reduce the patient’s disability and enhance their coping abilities and overall sense of well-being. These strategies include cognitive training, cognitive stimulation and daily activities that help slow the deterioration characteristic of the disease. Because of the expert professional support provided, innovative therapy treatment offered such as music therapy, art therapy, healing touch, neurofeedback, etc. to enhance recovery, and therapeutic aids provided that improve the patient’s coping skills and enable them to adapt better to the environment, rehabilitation for Alzheimer’s is the most suitable and effective treatment option. The professional team available for the patient in a rehab understand the various needs and behaviours of the patient and thus ensure adequate physical exercise and social activity, adapt routines and activities to the individual for ensuring their participation, keep activities satisfying and familiar, provide “cues” for expected, desired behaviours, and remove all safety risks to keep the patient out of harm’s way.

How effective is Rehabilitation for Alzheimer’s?

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.

What are the benefits of Rehabilitation for Alzheimer’s?

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.

How does Rehabilitation work?

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.
