CARE24’s DEMENTIA NURSING CARE SERVICES

With a positive and realistic attitude, we provide mental and physical support by understanding what the patient is going through in this phase of their life. 

We provide care with at most compassion and empathy to establish a trustworthy relationship with the patient as a dementia patient is most likely to get confused about their own identity, will develop difficult to handle behaviour and as dementia progresses the patient’s conditions will only deteriorate. 

Our caregivers would be the ones with whom they will feel comfortable & safe as dementia progresses. Our caregivers would be mindful to regularly reassess the care needs & health status of the patients.

How We Made A Difference

  • home nursing services, Dementia  My father had a hip bone surgery in January. I have been using Care24 services ever since. The attendants that cane were good in the beginning. However their services have become good to bad to worse to worst in the last 15 days. They changed the night attendant without informing me personally just 6 hours before the time. My father had just settled down with the last attendant and now they were sending a replacement tonight. To add to my frustration the guy didn’t turn up and did not answer the calls. When I called their call centre - they said they can’t help me at this hour. Well- I can’t help but call them CARELESS CARE24.

  • home nursing services, Dementia  worst service, they just talk as if they will send professional at our place, they give big promises at the time of starting their services, but when the attendant come at our place we realized that he was more delicate than our patient, the person whom they had sent got a small scratch in his finger and than the same day he said he wont come as he got injury, so the next day he dint turn up neither did care24 arrange for a replacement, after calling them for 4 times they said me sorry they couldn't arrange anyone today. they don not have the decency to even inform that they cannot arrange for a replacement.. please do not go for their services, its just the promises nothing to deliver

  • home nursing services, Dementia  We had a ridiculously pathetic experience with them. Took an attendant service, a 10 day offer (rs 600 instead of their regular fee of rs 800), for my mother who had undergone an knee replacement surgery. In six days, 4 different attendants were assigned for no fault of ours. We had terrible experience going through the back-end team trying to explain the importance of sending only one attendant and not a different one every new day. The last person assigned wanted to leave by 5pm even though the timings were from 8am to 8pm. With this many other terrible instances in these 6 days, we had no option but to cancel the services. The back-end team were utterly useless in understanding the importance of having only one person assigned. They kept insisting that we pay for 800rs per day for 6 day and offer of rs 600 per day would be invalid. The management should look into this scam and take immediate action on the team. Note: Even though we wanted the services, we were forced to abandon it with no fault of ours. The back-end team has absolute disregard for the grievances of the client.

  • home nursing services, Dementia  We contacted care 24 for my Dad's physiotherapy. Our physiotherapist Dr Dharita is very knowledgeable and extremely patient. My Dad is showing a lot for improvement in terms of his movement.

  • home nursing services, Dementia  Worst!!! I am paying for professional services and the attendant is not professional. The level of disappointment is i have to terminate services on Day 1 itself. And still I am being told to pay for 1 day. Please assess the attendant before going for services from care24

Frequently Asked questions

It is a serious mental health condition that can cause problems in a person’s daily routine. In some patients, dementia can start and progress very slowly and often show no symptoms. In others, the changes can be sudden and very noticeable. One of the most common form of dementia is Alzheimer’s.

 

While it is true that most cases of dementia cannot be treated and there is no reverse effect that can cure the symptoms, early diagnosis can help in some cases.

  • No symptoms and the patient will function normally.
  • Small gaps in memory. The patient may have difficulty locating a daily object such as reading glasses, newspaper and so on.
  • The patient may start getting stressed as they will find it difficult to perform simple everyday tasks. The patient may find it hard to remember location,locate an address or forget the names of family and friends.
  • Mild dementia sets in. This is when mood swings become prominent.
  • The patient may require assistance to perform simple activities.
  • The patient will start forgetting names of family members and close acquaintances. This is also the time when the patient may start requiring full-time assistance. Mood swings are also very common and sleep disorders can set in.
  • The most critical stage, as severe dementia sets in. The patient will be unable to do almost anything on their own, and require assistance for simple tasks such as sitting, walking, eating and so on.

Dementia mainly occurs when there is damage to the nerve cells, which could be in any part of the brain. The area that is affected and the type of damage will often determine the severity of the condition.

 

Progressive dementia is the type of dementia cases that is characterized by the area in the brain that is affected. In such cases, the damage is irreversible and cannot be cured. Other types of dementia that are caused by reaction to some type of medicines or due to any vitamin deficiencies may get better with proper treatment and care.

Major Causes of Dementia

  1. Age – people above 65 are often prone to dementia, especially Alzheimer’s.
  2. Damage to blood vessels that supply blood to the brain, often as a result of stroke or other problems related to blood vessels.
  3. Clumps of protein forming in the brain, known as Lewy bodies.
  4. Degeneration of nerve cells in the frontal and temporal brain lobes. These areas are responsible for controlling behaviour, personality and language.
  5. Any form of repetitive trauma to the brain, such as injuries suffered during a sports event, a physical fight or some accident.
  6. Huntington’s disease, a disease caused by genetic mutation, can cause degeneration of certain nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord.
  7. Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease is a type of rare brain disorder that may be caused due to an abnormal type of protein. It can be inherited or may happen as a result of exposure to nervous system tissue or any disease in the brain.
  8. Parkinson’s disease can also often develop into dementia.

There is still no definite cure for dementia, and most types of dementia cannot be treated, especially the ones that are under the category of progressive dementia. In such cases, the medical team will focus on treating the symptoms and providing care.

 

In cases of dementia that occurs due to reversible or non-degenerative causes, the medical team will try to prevent any further damage to the brain tissue.

 

The medical team will try a combination of the following treatment therapies to help a patient suffering from dementia:

 

Medicines – The most common medications prescribed in India for dementia and related symptoms are caprylidene, donepezil, ergoloid mesylates, ethosuximide, galantamine and memantine. Please remember that these should only be taken when prescribed by the doctor.

Occupational Therapy – An occupational therapist can help the patient adapt to the changes and cope better. This type of therapy can help prevent accidents and keep the patient prepared for the progression of dementia.

Physiotherapy or Massage Therapy – Various exercises and massage routines can help to slow down the progression of dementia. A physiotherapist can assess the patient’s condition and customize an exercise plan that will help in promoting physical activity and mobility for as long as possible.

  2. Avoid processed foods.
  3. Exercise regularly and keep your weight in check.
  4. Reduce or quit alcohol consumption and tobacco use.
  5. Regularly check blood pressure levels and keep them in check.
