Bangalore, call for an Exclusive Care Facility for Dementia. Karnataka, India.

Alzheimer’s & Related Disorders Society of India, Bangalore Chapter is a non-profit organization registered in 2006, the Centenary year of Alzheimer’s. This Chapter is affiliated to Alzheimer’s & Related Disorders Society of India (ARDSI) which has 14 chapters across the Country. The Bangalore Chapter is promoted by Nightingales Medical Trust.

Unlike other diseases, dementia affects not only the patients but devastates the families as well. It is unfortunate that Bangalore, the Pensioners Paradise of India, where over 30,000 elders are estimated to be affected by dementia, still does not have an exclusive care facility for dementia. Awareness too is lacking.
