Meet Our Team Of Dementia Psychiatrists

Overview

Rehabilitation care for dementia often includes evidence-based activities that aim at compensating for the person’s lost abilities, enhancing self-esteem, maintaining residual skills, and providing an opportunity of social contact, enjoyment, and pleasure. There are various professionals involved in the care of people with dementia. A psychiatrist can help provide medications for issues like anxiety and depression that the person with dementia may additionally be suffering with. A therapist can help a person with in early stage dementia to achieve personal goals such as learning new ways to do daily tasks, maintaining independence, dealing with negative emotions related to the acceptance of dementia, suggest activities that help with cognitive stimulation, etc. A therapist can also help family members understand the diagnosis of dementia, what to expect, how to deal with the symptoms, and how they can best support the person with dementia. A physiotherapist can help the person with dementia maintain functionality, find newer ways to do functional tasks that they are no more able to do, and reduce the risks of falls. Outside of the rehabilitation setting, family members and caregivers need to take personal responsibility to work with these different professionals on a regular basis that helps reduce cognitive decline, manage symptoms, and overall enhance the quality of life of the person with dementia.

How does post-rehabilitation care for dementia work?

When a person is in moderate to severe stages of dementia, it is not advisable to take them out of rehabilitation care for dementia. However, in such a case, it is important to take responsibility for regular appointments with all the professionals required to slow their cognitive decline and help them as well as the caregivers learn how to manage their symptoms. 

How many sessions are required?

Since dementia is a progressive disease, regular long-term appointments with professionals are advisable. If you have opted the person with dementia out of a rehabilitation facility, it is important that you are regular with outpatient services with different professionals. These would include psychiatrists, clinical psychologists or a counsellor, family therapists, and physiotherapists. Therapy sessions could be vital to understand how to talk to and how to create your home environment to make living more convenient for the person with dementia.
