Activities of the World Alzheimer’s Day at the Samtah Applied College and the former Samtah University College
Coinciding with World Alzheimer's Month; In solidarity with the campaign of the Saudi Charitable Society to raise awareness of Alzheimer's disease, the Samtah Applied College carried out its awareness and educational campaign under the slogan "Be closer to make them feel." An awareness lecture was presented about Alzheimer's, which is a disease condition that includes a persistent decline in the ability to think, as well as behavioral and social skills. This negatively affects a person's ability to work independently. The rate of its prevalence in Saudi Arabia was discussed, and the early signs and indicators of the disease and how to avoid its development were mentioned. The seven stages of Alzheimer's disease, how it is diagnosed and treated, and some ways to prevent it were also mentioned. The lecture dealt with some useful guidelines for serving and providing care to the Alzheimer's patient. The Saudi Alzheimer's Charitable Society was also introduced to the most prominent voluntary services it provides to Alzheimer's patients and their families, and the support provided by the Society for studies and research in this field.
