PC age 80, was diagnosed with advanced-stage dementia. Her condition led to significant challenges for the family, particularly her professional nurse. PC’s son recognized the need for specialized support and education in dementia caregiving, and approached Samvedna Care. An online caregiver enablement program was recommended for the primary caregiver. The program consisted of eight online sessions designed to empower the family with knowledge, strategies, and skills to provide the best possible care for PC.
Through the eight caregiver enablement sessions, PC’s nurse gained comprehensive knowledge about dementia, management of challenging behaviour, mind stimulation activities, and recognizing her own caregiver stress. The nurse was guided on maintaining self-care and stress management techniques. In the concluding session a review was conducted to gauge her capabilities and she was found to be better equipped to manage PC.
Samvedna’s online caregiver enablement program had an immense impact on the professional caregiver’s ability to provide care and navigate the challenges of advanced-stage dementia. With her knowledge about dementia, communication techniques, and strategies for managing challenging behaviour, the nurse felt more confident and positive in her role as a caregiver. Additionally, the program’s emphasis on the caregiver’s well-being ensured that the nurse was able to regulate her personal stress levels.
