Today is Guru Purnima, an auspicious day in Hindu tradition dedicated to spiritual and academic teachers. I had the opportunity to meet some of the most respected senior physicians as well as their medical students, physical therapy students and faculty.

I had the opportunity to meet with nursing students and caregivers this afternoon at the Ambi Ranawade Old Aged Home. They requested a Caregiving 101 discussion, with particular focus on caregiving for older adults with dementia. We discussed important aspects of care such as routine, reorientation, sleep hygiene and physical activity. The learners also shared their experiences regarding caregiver stress.
