General tips for locating relevant resources.

Please contact the resources above for dementia/ care support. For resources in other Indian cities/ regions, or across India, check City-wise/ Region-wise resources and Resources across multiple Indian cities. Some tips for locating additional resources:

  • Surf the Internet for local services using the name of the city and types of services. For example, look for home care, home health, old age homes, nursing agencies, etc.
  • Ask the reception/ nurses at local hospitals. They often know about home health care agencies. The various dementia organizations and elder care organizations listed may also give names of more resources.
  • To evaluate online data on a possible service provider, check how recent their events, pictures, social media posts are to understand whether the entity seems operational and reliable.
  • For minor procedures, like IV, neighborhood path labs and small clinics may be able to send nurses home. They may even know doctors who make home visits.
  • For diagnosis, look at reliable larger hospitals of the city. Check their neurology, psychiatry, and geriatrics departments or special clinics like memory clinics, geriatric clinics, or geriatric psychiatry clinics.
  • Also, try using the state name, locality name, other names of your city or nearby cities.
  • Of course, in all cases, you must satisfy yourself about the quality and reliability.
