Alzheimer's awareness and care
MetadataShow full item record
The project brief is to understand the mental disorder like Alzheimer's and to be able to distinguish between normal aging problems and signs of the onset of Alzheimer's, which is the most confusing thing to understand. It also spreads the awareness about the risk factors, the difference between sign and symptoms, the aspects that Alzheimer's affects the most, the complete diagnosis process. But majorly, it talks about the caregiving part and the role of caregivers. Caregiving is the most crucial part in disorders like Alzheimer's as in such conditions medications alone cannot provide relief to the patient but the caregiving does. Therefore, this project deals with providing the guidelines to family members as well as caregivers on how to manage and taking care of the person with Alzheimer's. And since, caregiving here means caring for two people; the person with the illness and the person taking care of himself or herself. Therefore, the last part of the project also covers the points in which a caregiver can take care of himself or herself.
