Information for Healthcare professionals

The following is a glossary of the punjabi terms that arose from participants in a study looking at Sikh perceptions of dementia. We hope this glossary will be helpful to healthcare professionals and other providers who work with or care for individuals in the Sikh or Punjabi community. We hope that an awareness of these terms encourages healthcare professionals to begin an inclusive discussion with this population.
