The most common example of dementia is the Alzheimer's disease.

Physiotherapy for Dementia:
A patient with dementia can benefit from physiotherapy regardless of the possibility that the patient can't perceive their own family. Physiotherapy, notwithstanding, can be of good advantage to the individual who has dementia and also their family and parental figures at different stages. The principle explanation behind this is that recovery administrations can help the dementia patient to be as utilitarian as would be prudent for whatever length of time that is conceivable.

  3. The caretakers of individuals with dementia regularly show weakness when contrasted with their same aged companions. Physiotherapy helps with diminishing the weight of consideration by instructing caregivers to provide encouragement and upliftment to individuals with dementia.
  4. Patients with dementia are always at a risk of falling down and hurting themselves. Poor balance accounts for the danger of falls. This can be worked upon and improved by physiotherapy driven exercises. Exercise can have a huge and positive effect on behavioral and mental indications of dementia, enhancing psychological capacity and mindset, which can decrease the doses of strong medicines. Special exercise routines are assigned to the patients which help improve their body balance while walking.    
  5. Physiotherapy has crucial influence in advancing and keeping up portability of individuals with dementia. It assumes a basic part in the end of life consideration by overseeing situations, seating and complicated muscle contracture. Individuals with dementia regularly experience issues in communicating pain. Pain influences cognizance, inspiration and reaction to any intervention. Physiotherapists are specialists in recognizing and treating pain in dementia patients and give training to care home staff and caregivers of the patients.

Physiotherapy is very important for dementia patients. Regular physiotherapy sessions are beneficial for patients for improvement in condition.

Dear Sir I can imagine you must be quite concerned about your mother. Vascular dementia is a type of memory loss that occur due to disruption in blood circulation in brain. Along with memory, it can also affect a person's behavior, judgement, communication and ability to function. It is a progressive condition and the illness trends to progress over time. Unfortunately, there is no cure. However, there are medications which can be prescribed to control further damage to blood circulation. There are medications to help with the behavioral problems if there are any. Certain lifestyle adjustments like keeping her engaged and as much mentally active by scheduling activities, sticking to routine, maintaining a healthy diet will help her.

My father is 60 years old and he is facing memory related issues like he is unable to talk flawless (gets confused). He is not even able to do even simple mathematical calculations (20+12 ). Very often he faces difficulty in recognizing directions even for the roads he has travelled thousands time. He forgets small small things and can’t recall something discussed a couple of hours earlier. He is a diabetic person for last 10-12 years and takes medicine regularly. He does not drink, quit smoking 12-15 years ago. In last 5-6 years he was consistently surrounded by severe challenges causing mental and emotional pressure. To worsen his condition, he was attacked and bitten by a monkey (in head) while sleeping, around 4-5 years back. We noticed his problem with memory loss a year back and since then he is on medication but there is no improvement, medication has only slowed down the rate of memory loss. We are concerned and want to get him a proper treatment. Any suggestion or guidance will be highly appreciated.

It is important to maintain a good control over his blood sugar levels. Keep him surrounded by a good company - a pleasant environment: where all the family members accept his condition as it is and share the togetherness. Doing daily exercise and eating healthy food (more of organic products) can help in natural healing. Learning Yoga can be beneficial for his overall health and well-being. You can also start Homeopathy which is safe and gentle and can be taken with other regular medicines without any side-effects or drug interaction. You can contact me for a detailed consultation so that suitable remedy for his constitution can be given.

Psychological Tests - How Are They Helpful?

Psychological Tests - How Are They Helpful?

Psychological assessment — also known as psychological testing — is done to help a psychologist better understand an individual and provide valuable insights into the individual’s behavior, skills, thoughts and personality. Psychological testing commonly includes intelligence testing, personality testing, and skills testing, among other areas.

Psychological assessment is never focused on a single test score or number. Every person has a range of competencies that can be evaluated through a number of methods. A psychologist is there to evaluate the competencies as well as the limitations of the person, and report on them in an objective but helpful manner. A psychological assessment report will not only note weaknesses found in testing, but also the individual’s strengths.

It has often been said that 'you are what you think'. It is the human mind which enabled the entire race to dominate over the planet over millions of other species. How can this very complex instrument is so difficult to understand? The human mind is capable of extreme highs and lows in terms of every aspect such as emotions, achievement, empathy anger and so forth. One field of study is Psychology which does help us in its understanding. 

What are psychological tests?

Psychological tests are a method to gauge various parameters of an individual’s mind and how it works. There are not one but multiple psychological tests which help with determining various aspects of a person’s mental functioning and capabilities among others. Like medical tests such as X-rays and various types of blood reports help us get a better picture of the condition of your body, similarly, psychological testing helps us a get a better view of a person’s thinking and if at all there are any problems with it. Just a few examples of psychological testing are as follows – 

  1. Aptitude testing in children to check for learning disabilities 
  2. Testing for skills such as dexterity or flexibility, and reaction time to look for brain damage or dementia
  3. Memory tests to look for psychological disorders as well as dementia
  4. Testing for anxiety related disorders especially in social conditions, both in children and adults

How are these helpful?
More than pinpointing psychological disorders, these tests are meant to help an individual point out problems and then start on a treatment or therapy to overcome the problems. These tests can help a person in many ways such as – 

  1. Identifying problems early on when they are mild, thus making treatment more effective
  2. Help them further in studies or their career where certain conditions or problems were becoming an impediment
  3. Provide methods to tackle a phobia
  4. Sometimes, psychological testing is very helpful in diagnosing serious mental issues such as depression which may force many to take their own lives; thus preventing it
  5. Helping to combat physiological problems in cases where no pathological causes are found. In many cases, stress and anxiety lead to other disorders like diabetes, hypertension, gastrointestinal troubles and others. Once the psychological side is treated after correct diagnosis, the physical problems also tend to dissipate.
