Dementia Care

 A Comprehensive Dementia Care at GE-First Healthcare: Guiding You Through Every Step of the Journey.

Understanding Dementia

Dementia is a multifaceted challenge affecting cognition, memory, and daily functioning. It encompasses various conditions, each with unique characteristics. Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia, and Lewy body dementia are among the most common forms. At GE-First Healthcare, we understand the intricacies of these conditions and tailor our approach to meet the diverse needs of those on this journey.

Dementia Care

Early Signs and the Imperative of Early Intervention

Early signs of dementia are subtle yet impactful. Forgetfulness, confusion about time or location, and difficulty expressing thoughts are common indicators. Recognising these signs early is pivotal. It enables timely intervention, allowing for better management of symptoms and an improved quality of life for both the individual and their family.

The Importance of Timely Action

Timely action is crucial when it comes to dementia. Early diagnosis allows for the implementation of strategies that can slow down the progression of the condition. It empowers individuals and their families with the knowledge and resources needed to navigate this complex journey more effectively.

Symptoms and Diagnoses

Symptoms of dementia go beyond memory loss. They may include challenges in problem-solving, changes in personality, and difficulty completing routine tasks. A comprehensive diagnosis involves a thorough assessment, including medical history, physical examinations, and sometimes neuroimaging or laboratory tests. At GE-First Healthcare, our experienced team is adept at conducting thorough assessments to ensure accurate diagnoses.
