About Us

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.

Unlike other diseases, dementia affects not only the patients but devastates the families as well. The cause of the disease remains unknown, and there is no prevention or cure. Age is the major risk factor for Alzheimer's. It is unfortunate that Bangalore, the Pensioners Paradise of India, where over 30000 elders are estimated to be affected by dementia, still does not have an exclusive care facility for dementia. Awareness too is lacking.

Responding to this emerging epidemic among elders, Nightingales Medical Trust , an NGO implementing various need-based projects for the well-being of the elderly in and around Bangalore is promoting the Bangalore Chapter of ARDSI. Visit www.nightingaleseldercare.com for more details.

Eminent and committed persons are on the Board as Patrons and committee members.

The Chapter strives to generate the necessary awareness and create appropriate support systems for the patients and the care giving family members through networking with other NGOs and governmental agencies. Besides these, we have set up support groups, training of professional caregivers, promoting research, camps for dementia screening, rehabilitation services, subsidizing the cost of care (medicines/ consumables, daycare) for needy people with dementia.

Our Patrons:

Prof. C N R Rao                     Honorary President-Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research
Dr. K Kasturirangan              Chairman, Karnataka Knowledge Commission
