Patients with dementia usually lack insight as to how the disease progressed and it is the family who starts noticing the changes in the patient and can identify the signs and symptoms. During this time, if the family seeks out help immediately, with early intervention and diagnosis, maximum harm reduction can take place, and the progression of the disease can be slowed down.
Dr. JPS Bhatia, a renowned psychiatrist in Amritsar, Punjab, and his team of Psychiatrists, Psychologists, and Nursing staff with salient certifications have been helping patients and families suffering from this disease for a long. We offer pharmacological interventions and psychotherapies to work on insight-building in a patient with dementia. Cognitive Rehabilitation, Reminiscence Therapy, Cognitive Stimulation Therapy, Reality Orientation Training, rTMS, and much more are used in a calm and supportive environment for maximum results.
With appropriate management techniques, patients with dementia can undergo marked improvement in their symptoms and can lead their lives with dignity and self-respect.
