Dementia & Alzheimer's SIF presentation in English & Marathi 2011.mp4




Dementia is a progressive brain dysfunction which results in memory loss and a restriction of daily activities and in most cases leads in the long term to the need for care. Dementia is one of the major causes of disability in late-life. Many diseases can result in dementia, the most common one being Alzheimer's disease. It mainly affects older people ; about 2% of cases start at the age of 60 years. After this, the prevalence doubles every five years. Dementia affects each person and family differently. As dementia progress, there are notable changes in memory, thinking, language, behavior and function — all of which require different skills and strategies. Very few of us have a natural born knack for care giving. The challenge posed by dementia as a health and social issue is of a scale we can no longer ignore. Despite the magnitude, there is gross ignorance, neglect and scarce services for people with dementia and their families. This Presentation is prepared by Silver Inning Foundation in association with ARDSI Greater Mumbai Chapter for Information and awareness. June 2011 . Contact : silverinnings@gmail.com .

Nice post about Alzheimer's Care, really this will increase day by day. But we are responsible for providing the nursing care, health care facilities for senior or disables people. Our communities understand the unique need and provide the special environment to the seniors.
