Alzheimer Hellas has prepared for next Saturday (March 30) a day dedicated to the caregivers of people with dementia with presentations and experiential workshops by its scientific team. The event “I take care of you, I take care of me” (with free admission) will take place from 10:00 to 13:30 in the Manolis Andronikos hall of the Archaeological Museum of Thessaloniki.

As mentioned in a related announcement, “March 17th has been designated in the country as the day of caring for people with dementia, as a tribute and recognition of the difficult role and work faced by thousands of our fellow human beings every day. Dementia and related disorders have the effect of limiting the patient’s daily activity, leading in the long term to the need for care from third parties. The care of people with dementia is a key factor in the course of the disease and in the patients’ quality of life. At the same time, the caregiver is asked to negotiate a significant physical and mental burden and his burden makes him the “hidden” patient of the disease. Information, education and support of caregivers are essential to deal with the difficult emotions and challenges that the disease brings.”
