Intensive Care for Alzheimer’s or Dementia Patients

Taking care for persons with Alzheimer or dementia symptoms require a lot of challenging work that become terrible at times. Since this medical condition involves sudden behavioral changes from those who are suffering from this illness, it causes new patterns of demands and prospect to enable the nurses in a particular nursing home to be able to cope with all the responsibilities that are required in performing his/her duties.

Fortunately, there are various nursing homes all over the world which has the ability to provide the care that Alzheimer’s and dementia patients require. One of the most ideal places where you can expect an excellent service for your loved ones who have this condition is in Asia, specifically in the Mabuhaii Nursing Home. Here are some more important reasons why this Asian country is the best choice for people who are suffering from this condition. We contribute Security, Safety and Satisfaction in connection with our service pertaining to our frail elderly residing in our nursing home.

Symptoms of Alzheimer’s and dementia illness progresses:

  • Elders become more emotionally fragile

  • Sense of dread and anguish that accompanies the awareness of having a progressive fatal illness

Due to the previously mentioned symptoms, patients of this illness need intensive care, affection, and attention; Filipino dementia nursing home is the most ideal institution that can contribute significant welfare where the ill elders could have safety and comfort. Unlike in the Western countries where nursing homes employ only few nursing staffs to reduce the enormous personnel costs and caregivers have very little time for the patients.

Nursing home in the Philippines is a place with cozy and harmonious environment which is ideal for patients with Alzheimer’s or dementia. They can stay to be better and secured, at the same time, the Filipino nurses and caregivers are very professional, hospitable, respectful and friendly people in performing their duties especially for the elders.

Patients with this illness are provided with a healthy and well balanced diet specifically required by people who are suffering from these diseases.

Nurses and caregivers provide continuous monitoring with regards to the nutritional eating habit of the patient. Also, physician and family members are being notified if the patient is having difficulty eating. Therefore, the Philippines is the best place for a nursing home, where the Alzheimer or dementia patients can live very happily because of the gorgeous place, professional and friendly nurses.

The dignity of the Alzheimer or dementia ill people is to be protected. In our affluent societies only the one who performs a lot receives recognition. For old people and sick people it is hard to be treated with dignity and respect. In South-East Asia old people are highly respected and cared for. Performance in job counts here far less. The people in South-East Asia are also known for their hospitality, family orientation, cheerfulness, friendliness and, above all, for the manner and respect towards older people. Especially with the care for Alzheimer or dementia ill elderly, there must be paid attention to the fact that a dignified care does not come under the wheels.

Since the often childish or aggressive behavior of the Alzheimer patients rescue the danger to treat him like a child or to answer the aggressions. A professional nurse knows the illness and properly knows how to handle it. In our nursing home counts the primary principle:

  • The protection of the dignity of the person has the utmost significance.

  • The Self-Reliance and Independence as Much as Possible is to be Preserved

  • One of our most important principles - after the protection of the dignity of the ill - is the preservation of the self-reliance/independence, as much as possible.

The everyday tasks of the sick person may not be simply taken from him, even if it would be often easier. And even if in our nursing home, a caregiver will always be there. Only if the tasks can’t be done anymore by the patient independently, the nurse has to help him very discreetly. It will not be corrected or improved. If the dementia sick person is patronized permanently, he reacts with fury, helplessness, fear and resignation. The situation can escalate. It is much more important to show praise and real joy for what the patient has done, even if for a healthy person we would not normally do. Since with dementia ill people often react incomprehensibly, especially the advanced stage dementia sick person behave like toddlers/babies. Nevertheless; what we are concern with is the learning ability, but here they differ seriously. Therefore, the dementia sick person may not be treated like a child, even if he behaves so. This would injure the dignity terribly and lead the dementia sick person to shame, rage, outrage and late resignation.

Nevertheless, with increasing progress of the illness the walking gets more and more difficult.

Therefore, physiotherapy which supports the posture, anchyloses avoids and quite simply practices the walking extensively, very importantly.
