Dementia is a syndrome characterized by loss of or deterioration of the cognitive or the higher mental functions such as memory, orientation and judgment.
There are several types of dementia classified based on the etiology (cause) or the presentation. The most well known one is Alzheimer’s disease, where there is a global decline. The patient starts forgetting recent things such as what they ate in the previous meal, whom they met a few hours ago, where they placed an object earlier. They may also forget names even of their close relatives such as spouse or children. They may forget the way, for instance the location of the bath room, or the kitchen etc. At times these patients may also become aggressive, abusive or violent.
At Plexus we rehabilitate these patients with stem cell which offers a promising cure, and along with that we use cognitive and behavior therapy and the other allied therapies.
