New Delhi: On the occasion of World Alzheimer’s Month and as a part of their Dementia awareness initiative, Care24 is currently conducting workshops, seminars and series of Dementia Caregiver-Support Meet to create awareness on this disorder and to stretch their support to the Caregiver throughout the month of September.
The very first “Dementia Caregiver Support Meet” was organized on 11th September, 2017. Around 10 families attended this Meet. These Support Meets provide a platform to allow caregivers to share their experiences, exchange information, and point each other toward information that has been particularly helpful. These sessions are run by Dementia care professionals, and is aimed to help caregivers devise productive strategies for dealing with issues relating to care, hygiene, medical liabilities, intra-family conflicts or tensions that may arise around difficult caregiving decisions. Care24 seeks to improve the quality of life for caregivers through training, services, research, and advocacy. Through training on caregiving, Care24 offers information on current medical breakthroughs, social trends, government initiatives and caregiving issues. It also provides direct support services for caregivers of those with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, stroke, Parkinson’s and other debilitating health conditions that strike adults.
