PwD stay in “private wards” in each block. The wards are designed to take care of PwD in category C3 to C7. It is expected that patients in category C1 and C2 are not usually admitted in a care center as the impact of dementia would not be debilitating both for the PwD as well as the family members. Some in C3 category may be admitted when the disease is diagnosed and when there is no help available at the home front. C4 is a crucial stage when family members feel the fatigue. PwD in C3 stage is normally physically strong enough to move around, but the cognitive loss is more pronounced and a few PwD might go missing from their homes. Even in home settings, family members often find it difficult. PwD from C3 to C6 stages are often admitted in care homes.
