For some, admitting a patient to a Dementia facility or Memory Centre as it is often called, might be the only option. Make sure to do your homework well before choosing a facility for your loved one. Dementia programmes and sufficient clinical support is needed to support these patients. Family involvement is key even though your loved one might not remember you, you still remember them!
Medwell SA specialises in providing managed home health care as an alternative to long-term hospitalisation and care in specialised facilities. Medwell SA launches its very own Dementia Programme in September 2021 which is World Dementia Awareness Month and this will coincide with World Alzheimer’s Day on 21 September 2021. Medwell SA’s services are offered to all age groups including the elderly that have become frail and those with Dementia.
