Dementia care approach at Epoch

Epoch's Dementia care services & approach

Dementia is a complex neurological condition often accompanied by psychiatric symptoms and behavioral challenges. It is often difficult to diagnose especially in the early stages and leaves caregivers feeling exhausted and confused. Dementia is progressive in nature and as of now, there is no treatment available for it. But all is not lost with a dementia diagnosis. Good management and a great supportive environment can help preserve the quality of life to a great extent. Early diagnosis and intervention has a critical role to play in the prognosis of the condition.

Dementia care can be very philosophy based. There are several approaches practiced globally. Epoch has more than 10 years of relevant experience in India, and is helmed by Neha Sinha, a dementia specialist & clinical psychologist, she is also trained in palliative care philosophy.

Epoch Dementia Care Program

Epoch Dementia Care Program

At Epoch, we provide a specialized dementia care program for elders suffering from dementia of any type and across all stages. The Epoch Dementia Care Plan manages symptoms of dementia by focussing on a resident’s emotional well being, providing holistic, and person centered care tailored to the resident’s needs that ensures quality of life. The Epoch dementia care plan is based on evidence based, global best practices. It focuses on the person as much as the medical condition.

We take the time to understand each resident living with dementia at a personal level. Right from the time of admission, we ask the family to share their loved one’s preferences, daily routines, and any challenging behaviors that they may exhibit as a result of their condition. Our trained staff members review this information and incorporate it into the individualized care plan that is used to guide day-to-day caregiving. Caring for someone with dementia can often be a challenge. Simple tasks such as giving a shower or eating a meal becomes particularly difficult. Our team uses evidence-based methods to care for residents living with dementia to ensure they receive the highest quality of care in the most comfortable manner.
