Shakespeare once wrote, “What’s in a name?” but Kelly Gunderson would argue against it. Kelly’s 87-year-old mother has Alzheimer’s Disease, a neurodegenerative and progressive condition that affects memory, language and thinking abilities. A video showing her mother recognizing Kelly and calling her name out shows the unadulterated joy that all caregivers and families of Persons with Dementia (PwDs) will relate to (Watch the video and read more at http://www.huffingtonpost.in/entry/alzheimers-mother-daughter_n_5752676).
September 21st is celebrated globally as World Alzheimer’s Day, with a mission to increase awareness about the illness, reduce stigma and improve the quality of life for PwDs. This year’s theme for World Alzheimer’s Month is “Remember Me”, an apt theme considering how loved ones and caregivers treasure each and every moment they share with their PwDs.
SRCF understands the value of these memories and attempts to increase these through its Dementia Day Care Centre at Wanowarie. Recreational, Cognitive, and Social activities are designed for the PwDs to stall the progression of the illness so that they can create many more memories with their families.
