“The Indian Caregiver’s Corner” :
From autor Balagopal Keeran (Family caregiver, New Delhi): "My father is an AD patient and that is how we got to know about this. Since then, trying to bring out awareness about the disease and inputs to family caregivers from our personal experiences.
There is still so much of ignorance about AD in India. People still presume it is a natural part of aging !
About his book: "My father is a victim of this dreadful disease and we have had some terrible experiences based on our lack of awareness of the disease, its symptoms, and changes in patient's behavior.
I have committed lots of mistakes as a family caregiver due to my ignorance and lack of awareness about this disease. I am seeking repentance for my mistakes and also want to ensure that nobody repeats my mistakes and that everyone can understand their patient well and provide the correct response to the patient's changing behavior as the disease progresses."
My book - ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE (How to manage Alzheimer's Disease) wherein I have shared my personal experiences as a family caregiver.
