Alzheimer's Disease Symptoms & Treatment


In medical literature, Alzheimer's disease stated as a common type of Dementia is a neurological disorder responsible for causing significant memory loss and deterioration of brain functioning by causing the death of brain cells.

This neurodegenerative disorder starts slowly and progressively worsens, affecting memory, thinking and associated behaviour. An affected brain's structure and chemistry changes and damages many parts of the brain.

Alzheimer's disease develops differently for each individual and interferes with all intellect abilities involved in daily activities by weakening the memory gradually. People above 65 are prone to this mental disease. Pre- Dementia, Early, Moderate and Advanced are the four chronic stages of Alzheimer’s disease. AD, like a terminal illness, begins from mild cognitive impairments, abstract thinking and leads to episodic memory and long- term memory loss to complete speech loss eventually.

SYMPTOMS:

  • Untimely mood swings, forgetfulness and confusion over places, people and events
  • Feeling frustrated and feared by the loss of memory
  • Becoming withdrawn due to communication problems and low confidence
  • Difficulty in remembering or recalling newly learned information
  • Challenges in planning and resolving issues

TREATMENT:

Mind Plus has a range of unique care and treatment plans for Alzheimer patients offered for inpatient basis. As being a specialist in providing Alzheimer's treatment services, an exclusive care plan consists of palliative treatments and support is assigned to every individual according to the disease stage and environments. Friends and families are involved to help the patients to remain integrated while the disease progresses.

Progression can be temporarily slowed down to help patients cope up with their changing environment and behavioural problems. The core concern of the care services for Alzheimer is to improve the quality of life while the patient remains with Mind Plus until the end of life. Family counselling is being conducted to pacify as well as to keep them mentally ready for the upcoming stages.
