General tips for locating relevant resources in a city:
- Check the availability of a local chapter on the Alzheimer’s and Related Disorders Society of India (ARDSI) website, or contact ARDSI using their contact information
- Contact the National Dementia Helpline ( 04842808088 (Mon-Sat 10 AM-4 PM). E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org) or other helplines handled by the ARDSI National Office (09846198471,09846198786, 09846198473)
- Most cities have elder helplines run by a local NGO with the help of the Police Department. These helplines often have lists of agencies that supply attendants and nurses, and also lists of old age homes and other such facilities.
- A list of local services can usually be obtained by surfing the Internet using keywords and the name of the city. For example, if looking for resources in Delhi, you can google for “home nursing Delhi”, “dementia care Delhi”, “old age homes Delhi.”
- Also try searching using variants of the city name. For Delhi, for example, look for “New Delhi”. “Dilli”, “South Delhi”, or “Gurgaon”, “Faridabad”, “Noida”, “NCR”.
- The larger hospitals of the city will usually have memory clinics to help with the initial diagnosis of dementia. Check for the neurology or the psychiatry departments.
- The reception/ nurses at local hospitals are often able to supply the names of agencies that supply attendants/ nurses for home care.
- Many large path lab services also provide home pickup of blood samples.
- Many neighborhood path labs and small clinics are able to send nurses home for some minor procedures, like IV. Some even have contacts of doctors who may be willing to make home visits (you must satisfy yourself about the quality and reliability)
