Across the world, health care providers and agencies have been researching and exploring programs to treat, manage and address the needs of the elderly with Alzheimer’s disease. Many of us are desperate to find answers or come up with solutions to manage the disease. Alzheimer’s disease is not a disease of the individual that has the pathology in the brain but it also is the disease of the family. It affects everyone in the family. Svayus is a holistic program. It addresses the need of the elderly with Alzheimer’s in a holistic manner. Environment tremendously impacts our overall well being. The environment that we dwell and engage in influences our overall attitude and posture. Coupling care with rehabilitation and education through purposeful and meaningful activities throughout the day and night will facilitate rehabilitation of cognitive skills, activities of daily living skills and functional mobility skills. No more can we afford to deliver care in a traditional manner. Svayus is the only personality centric therapeutic care program that facilitates, basic cognitive skills, independence in activities of daily living and mobility skills. Alzheimer is clinically diagnosed based on one’s ability to care and manage for self safely. Thou the disease is progressive, if we are successful in enabling the individual to care for self or enable them to function at their highest level of independence, Alzheimer’s disease are no longer a debilitating disease. In other words, we have stopped the disease from taking away our independence and consuming our lives. At this time, there is no perfect recipe available in the market to treat and rehabilitate individuals with Alzheimer’s disease. In my opinion, the Svayus program could be the ingredient to cook an effective Alzheimer care program to enable individuals with Alzheimer’s disease live a life that is filled with dignity and quality.
