Alzheimer’s awareness in Saudi Arabia
Alzheimer’s disease affects the brain of people as they get older. It degrades the brain function and patient loses memory and thinking power gradually.
In Saudi Arabia, the awareness about the illness is slowly growing.
Alzheimer’s disease is now being seen as a disease and not just a case of simple memory loss in old age.
This year around 1 million people attended the various workshops, events, and conferences about Alzheimer’s across Saudi Arabia.
Caregivers are vital to Alzheimer’s patients
The caregivers for Alzheimer’s are specially trained to look after the patients as the disease has no cure.
Patients become completely dependent on their caregivers in every aspect of their life as the disease progresses.
In many cases, caregivers not only provide their medication but also handle their legal issues and expenses.
