HMC leads Qatar in joining the global community to mark Worl… – MENAFN.COM

(MENAFN- Gulf Times) In recognition of World Alzheimer's Month, Hamad Medical Corporation's (HMC) Geriatric and Long-Term Care team have arranged for a dozen different activities to promote staff and public awareness and education on Alzheimer's disease, one of the most common forms of dementia in the world. Additional activities have been arranged throughout the month in collaboration with the Oman Alzheimer's Association and the Center for Empowerment and Care of the Elderly (EHSAN). Dr. Hanadi Al-Hamad, Medical Director of Rumailah Hospital and Qatar Rehabilitation Institute, and the National Lead for Healthy Ageing in Qatar said that there has been a huge transformation in dementia perception and care over the last decade. More services are planned to augment those that have already been established in the last year or two, including the highly praised RAHA Alzheimer's and Memory Services Helpline and the Elderly Urgent Care Unit located in Rumailah Hospital. "As the Focal Point for Elderly in Qatar I want to ensure that the services we provide to our older population are effective and efficient, with a strong emphasis of patient centered care. The older adult group already includes more vulnerable patients who often have multiple health conditions and life challenges.
