Intern at NMT, Bangalore
NMT is not only taking care of the physical needs of the elders with dementia, but their cognitive, emotional and behavioural systems of the elders are also focussed on. Through our interaction with the care givers it was evident that they absolutely enjoy working here and their work gives them peace and relaxation. As an intern I got an opportunity to learn about dementia and aging, something which I had only basic information before I came here. I got to meet amazing people: the psychologists, the caregivers and the residents themselves. The elders residing in NMT have different stories to tell and it was heart-warming to receive their affection. I feel fortunate to have interned at Nightingales Medical Trust and I saw myself growing, both in knowledge and as a person. It was a gratifying experience for me.
