What is Dementia?

Dementia is an umbrella term for all progressive neuro-degenerative conditions which affect the brain and are severe enough to interfere with normal functioning. It generally affects the elderly population but is not a normal process of ageing. Unfortunately there is no cure for dementia, but certain symptoms may be controlled through right medication and care. 

Alzheimer’s disease is one of the most common form of dementia, amounting to 60-70% of the cases. Other conditions include vascular dementia, Lewy body dementia, mixed dementia, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, Parkinson’s disease dementia and Huntington’s disease.

According to a World Health Organization (WHO) report, at present there are more than 40 million people suffering from dementia globally. This number will increase to an estimated 75.6 million in 2030, and 135.5 million in 2050.

The early waring signs of Dementia are: memory loss that disrupts daily life, challenges in planning and problem solving, difficulty performing familiar tasks, confusion with time and place, trouble understanding visual images and spatial relationships, problems with words in speaking or writing, misplacing things and losing ability to find the way back, decreased or poor judgement, withdrawal from work and social activity, and changes in mood and personality

What they say...

"We were worried to leave our aged mother alone at home when we had to go out for work. After a long search Nightingales Medical Trust's Dementia Day Care Centre seemed to be the best place in terms of facility and care. So having trusted, we have placed her in these safe hands. We are now at peace. They keep her busy with activities so that she doesn’t feel left alone. The care shown towards her is very heart warming. It’s amazing to see how she’s become calm and more alert and is getting more involved in daily activities like reading newspaper and helping us in folding clothes. We are immensely grateful to the staff for taking care of my mother so patiently and keeping her in safe hands..."

Ms Rangini - Daughter of one of the members of our Dementia Day Care Centres

"I like the systematic approach towards data collection followed by the simple tests to determine the cognitive state of the patient. The DemClinic portal is an excellent idea to catch Alzheimer's and Dementia early in the elderly population of our country through online consultation and help maintain the quality of life before it starts to deteriorate."

"My mother has greatly benefitted from the program conducted by the Red Cross - Nightingales Dementia Care Centre. She is involved in many creative activities on a daily basis like drawing, puzzle solving, cooking and Physiotherapy at the Centre. I have seen a drastic change in her health and activity since she has been enrolled. She seems to be mentally happier, and physically active. She truly has a great time with the volunteers and staff there. I would like to thank the team for this wonderful improvement in my mother’s life."

Nizar Ali - Son of a regular member at the Dementia Day Care Centre, Hyderabad

"My mother is a long term resident of ETCM - Nightingles Dementia Care Centre at Kolar for the last 3 years. I am very happy with the level and quality of care that is provided to my mother. The carers are well-trained and are caring and deligent. Nurses are very attentive to all the needs of the patients. The incharge is knowledgeable and proactive in managing patients' needs and services. She manages the facility efficiently providing a very supportive and caring environment."

Ruma Ray - Daughter of one of our residents at ETCM – Nightingales Dementia Care Centre 

"We were skeptical at first when we decided to bring our mother to Nightingales Centre for Ageing and Alzheimer’s, but as soon as my sister and I stepped into the institution and talked to the doctors, we felt assured that this was the right place. We finally had someone who could explain to us the nature of the disease, provide the medicines that will help soothe my mother, and provide individual care without having to impose on her space and freedom. Setting a routine in an expanded, yet controlled environment, we found, was critical. As the months went by, we felt her grow calmer, more relaxed and more vocal. Only at NCAA, were we able to understand the unique problems that came with dementia and we finally felt that she was able to get the help that she required. My mother has been here for over 7 years now. Even though her physical faculties have reduced considerably, we are very sure that the best place that she could be taken care of is in NCAA. And we are grateful every day to all of the staff who takes such loving care of my mother."

Vanaja Nair - Daughter of one of the residents of our Residential Dementia Care Centre at Bangalore

"I am impressed by Nightingales Medical Trust in their professionalism and in understanding the specific needs of my father. My father is taken care with love and affection.Every time he comes back home he is very happy and looks forward to go to the Centre again. We see how he enjoys doing the activities in the center and has started writing again. I am very happy with the service Nightingales Medical Trust is providing and the staff here are always co-operative. Keep up the good work."
