Here's everything else you need to know about Bipolar Disorder

Dementia, a disorder that is chronic and progressive leading to significant damage to memory, communication and judgement of a person. The disorder is usually seen in ageing populations and is identified by abnormal loss of memory or impairment in judgement that is not a normal part of ageing. 

Dementia is associated with a lot of other disorders and can cause multiple complications. The disorder causes a lot of distress to the individual and their families. The key to treating it? Early diagnosis and seeking appropriate help.

Dementia in Hyderabad is a major cause for concern. It affects ageing individuals and results in memory problems and much more. Hyderabad has been facing a crunch of mental healthcare facilities and mental healthcare professionals. This makes it difficult to diagnose and seek help for serious disorders such as dementia. 

In India as well, dementia is a major issue. Only 10% of dementia sufferers get diagnosed within the country. By itself, dementia eventually results in the individual becoming completely dependent on caretakers for all their needs. Early diagnosis and treatment help prevent this and help the individuals keep some amount of independence within their lives. Cadabams helps in the entire process from diagnosis to recovery with our rehabilitation center for dementia patients in Hyderabad.

Early diagnosis and treatment is key to managing dementia. As the disease is progressive and chronic in nature, every delay becomes detrimental to the recovery process. However, a diagnosis must be done only by a medical professional. The diagnostic procedure will assess multiple aspects of a person's cognitive skills. The professional will use multiple cognitive and neuropsychological tests to asses cognitive functioning. Further MRI and CT scans also help the professional come up with a diagnosis. Another approach will be to test neurological functioning by testing reflexes, visual perception and ability to solve problems. All of these together help the professional build a complete picture of the disorder.

Dementia Treatment includes medication, counselling and therapeutic approaches as well. These treatments can be availed on an OPD basis as well. In some acute cases, immediate hospitalization might also be necessary. Rehabilitation is the final, and the most comprehensive option to help care for individuals with dementia. Well, wouldn't it be great if all these treatment options were available at one centre? Cadabam's offers exactly that. At Cadabams, we offer OPD services, In-Patient Services and Rehabilitation for Dementia Treatment in Hyderabad.

I would like to thank Cadabam's for their care and treatment procedures. My mother was suffering from Dementia, and I was so scared to leave her at a rehabilitation centre. But, I see her so happy now, and she is still so functional. Thank you, thats all I want to say.

Farah Sharma

My wife of 35 years started forgetting everyday things, and that was when we realized something was amiss. We received a diagnosis of dementia. It felt like the world was falling apart for me. But, the Cadabams team have done such a good job of caring for her that I feel so much more peaceful now. I can see her happy, and I know that she is cared for.
