The foundation stone laying ceremony of B N Das Dementia Clinic & Care Center under ARDSI Calcutta Chapter in Chandernagore was observed.

Alzheimer’s And Related Disorders Society of India (ARDSI) Calcutta Chapter is a registered NGO (Registration Number S/98648) under the West Bengal Societies Registration Act and the only Dementia organisation in the whole of eastern region of the country. This organization provides care and support for people with Dementia and their families.
There are estimated 18 million people worldwide with dementia and these figures are projected to reach 34 million by the year 2025. Moreover, 75% of this 34 million old people will be in the developing countries like India. With rapidly changing demographic pattern, it is therefore mandatory that dementia should be a national health priority and the funding of dementia service & research should form an essential part of the society’s response to the dementia epidemic.
The limitations of finances remain perpetual and formidable obstacles for our society. We will appreciate if you could support the urgent cause of tackling dementia through our service & research work. Caring for this affected population is a joint effort of all those who can still reason and remember. We truly believe you share the same thought and will join us in our mission.
Cheque or draft should be in favour of "ARDSI Calcutta Chapter".

FRIENDS OF ARDSI KOLKATA
a caregiver's thought
You have Alzheimer's Disease
and you are losing the power
to remember - to reason - to understand,
to do the simple tasks
we take for granted:
to put on a shoe -
to button a shirt -
to read a book -
to remember a face or name.
It is a hard thing to understand -
to accept ...
but I know you cannot help it -
cannot act otherwise.
I must take you as you are and expect not more, but less.
