Dementia is a debilitating condition which affects not only the patient diagnosed but is also taxing and draining for the family members and the caregivers.
Dementia counseling is therefore a way which can help you out in such difficult times. The patient and the family members are provided with the much needed information and support. The cognitive evaluation done at intervals keeps a check on the progress of the condition. The caregivers are also given guidance on how to check and monitor the patient. Also, the directions necessary to make lifestyle changes are discussed and taught.
The patient is trained in skills that will slow the progress of the condition and will also enable independence thus maintaining the quality of life.
