Gwangju, Donggu district to improve dementia care service

 

A specialized care home for people with dementia officially opened at Donggu district office in Gwangju. The dementia support center at Donggu office was built specifically to provide a secure and soothing environment for people with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia.

Jongmin Kim has more.

 

Dementia support centers are currently installed temporarily in the 5 districts in Gwangju, for the first time, the Donggu district office opened officially today in anticipation of better days ahead for the city's 15,000 dementia patients. The aim is to improve dementia detection and prevention, examination, treatment and rehabilitation services.

 

Tackling dementia is one of the major health care promises made by the current Moon Jae-in administration. The government recently increased the number of dementia care centers from 205 to 252, implementing additional programs specifically designed to support family members of the patients, on top of those who suffer from the disease.

 

About 9 percent of citizens over the age of 60 suffer from some form of dementia, and the rate increases among older senior citizens. Attending to their special needs is a major task of old-age services.

 

The new dementia support center will train specialist carers for the patients, help their families cope and work to raise awareness of the condition among the general public.

 

Regional dementia support centers will jointly operate with general or university hospitals specializing in dementia and offer preclusion programs, free medical examinations, registration management depending on the patients state of dementia, treatment and rehabilitation services.
