Training to SAJIDA caregivers on “Dementia Care Skills” by Mr. Md. Rashed Suhrawardy

SAJIDA Home Care is providing home-based health care to 36 patients in various locations of Dhaka city, with 62 caregivers in the roster on the month of February, 2018. As our patients are elderly people whose one of the most enduring problems are dementia and/or memory loss, Home Care is focusing on developing the dementia care skills of our caregivers who need to closely work with the patients. To meet this goal the Homecare Program arranged Dementia Care Skills training with Mr. Md. Rashed Suhrawardy, experienced in Dementia Care with a rich background in Home Care. Mr. Suhrawardy is also the Secretary General of Bangladesh Dementia Task Force (BDTF).

Twenty-six caregivers of SAJIDA Home Care in three batches have already received training. Nine more training are soon to follow. Upon completion of the training, caregivers are receiving certificates from Bangladesh Dementia Task Force (BDTF).
