This organization provides care and support for people with Dementia and their families.

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.

I must take you as you are and expect not more, but less.
