KOCHI: Dealing with dementia is not an easy walk for either patients or caregivers. Ciby Varghese, a resident of Pathanamthitta, has been taking care of her father Paulose K P (72), who has been suffering from Alzheimer’s disease for nearly three years. Every day presents a fresh challenge, but since she was able to detect memory disorders in her father at an early stage itself, the ride has not been too rough for her.
As the world observes Alzheimer’s Day on Tuesday, experts stress on the importance of creating awareness and identifying the symptoms early. The campaign theme for Alzheimer’s Day this year is ‘Know Dementia, Know Alzheimer’s’.
