Tips to locate trained attendants Unfortunately, it is very difficult to get trained attendants, and many families use general attendants and train them on dementia themselves or with the help of volunteers. Even attendants trained by agencies for dementia often need additional training. Read a detailed discussion on this topic at: Using Trained Attendants for Dementia Home Care. Also, please ensure that you evaluate any service/ facility before using it.

  • 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)

  1. I am writing to you regarding security and emergency related services for the citizens of Delhi. The insecurity of Delhi citizens is evident due to the poor, police to people ratio and the stretched resources of the security infrastructure in Delhi. In addition to this, the crime graph is rising adding to the fear of Delhi citizens. The situation for other emergency services is no different. Be it Fire or Medical services –we often hear of mishaps and loss of life and property due to delays by the emergency services. is an initiative to address this need of the Delhi citizens. We are providing Emergency Response Services to address theft, fire and medical emergencies including monitoring of senior citizens and of our loved one’s to make sure that we can get them help as soon as possible for their safety and out peace of mind. We make sure that you will get the due attention when you or your loved one’s need it within the shortest possible time.

  3. My mother who is 78 years old is suffering from Dementia. For last few months her behavior has changed drastically towards us, I am looking for good care taking place in Delhi/ Noida. I am placed at Greater Noida.

    1. Please contact the resources listed above for possible help, especially ARDSI Delhi Chapter.

      Please note, though, that finding a reliable care facility that suits your needs may be difficult. You will need to evaluate the facility carefully. Some tips for evaluation can be seen at:

      The behavior of someone with dementia changes for multiple reasons. It is often possible to make changes at home and in the way of interacting with the person to make it easier to look after the person at home. Given that there are hardly any facilities that are good enough, most families provide dementia care at home. This requires some amount of learning and adjustment, and is done by using a combination of various services. This Dementia Care Notes site includes several detailed discussions on related topics to make it easier to handle care at home for someone with dementia.

  4. My mother is suffering from Dementia for last 12 years. Being the only son, I have been taking care of her daily chores till now. But now I have some additional family responsibilities and due to future prospects need to move abroad. There is no one to take care of her here and unfortunately I can not take her along due to visa issues. I need a caring facility which can look after her thoroughly. I contacted some institutes like Apna Ghar in Delhi however, they refused my request as they do not accept someone with family. I can not leave my mother on road to become a destitute so that they can accept her.

    If anyone of you knows about any such institutes which take care of such patients, please share the addresses. I would be really grateful to you.

    Thanks In Advance.

    1. Please look at the page above, and contact the various organizations listed there. Please satisfy yourself about the reliability and suitability of the places they manage/ suggest before placing your mother there.

  7. Hi All,

    I too need some help here. My father is a dementia patient and is at a stage where we cannot even understand his speech. Right now he is in Assam and I live in Delhi. Can someone help me in finding a trained care taker who can speak Assamese language and be with my dad? If required I can bring my dad in delhi and have the care taker here as well.

    Please help.

    1. Talk to Samvedna(listed above) and also contact ARDSI Guwahati in case they can suggest something (Guwahati contact details here: )

      Do remember that relocating someone with cognitive problems can be very stressful for the person because it uproots them from familiar surrounds and also disrupts the routine the are used to. It needs a lot of planning. Using an attendant also needs quite a bit of planning (you may find the discussion on this page helpful:

      You can email us in case you are looking for more input.

  8. Hi!
    I’m writing here out of curiosity and my situation is desperate. My nanu (mother’s father) is an Alzheimer’s patient, he recently sneak out of the house and no one got to know, after an hour when my relatives realized his absence, they started searching for him.. After 24 hrs he some how managed to come back to the street where he lives and someone saw him h drove him off to the home.
    Now I want to know are there some devices, gps trackers, that can be used, the most reliable ones.. Because we can’t take risk to let the incident happen again Please suggest..

    1. Wandering is a common problem in dementia, and often takes the family by surprise the first time it happens. It is fortunate that your grandfather was brought back soon; often it takes days to locate the person, and the search is difficult and the person is in a bad state when found. In some cases, the wandered is never found. So it is good that you are looking for ways to reduce the chances of this happening.

      You will need to look at both how to reduce the chances of his wandering and how to improve the probability of finding him soon if he wanders. This is not just a matter of having a device and an app, though that may help. A full discussion on a range of things families can do for wandering are discussed on this page:

      Please note that many families assume that just getting a tracking device will help, but a tracking device cannot prevent wandering, and may not be useful to find someone who wandered. Devices may not be worn by the person the time he happens to wander off, they get lost or are stolen, the battery may get discharged. they may go bad. The best way to tackle the wandering problem is to use a multi-pronged approach and remain alert, and not just depend on any one method.

      Regarding specific device suggestions, repeated requests have been made to caregivers to share data on specific devices they have actually used and which has helped them – but on talking to them it turns out that most recommendations shared are based on just reading features or reviews, or a few days of trial, not an actual episode where someone who wandered was found becalms of the tracker. On the other hand, families have also often said the device they used stopped working or was of poor quality or was too expensive to keep using and so on, and the families discontinued them. But you can ask around or read reviews on Amazon etc and make a choice.

      Do have a look at the link suggested above – it has a fairly detailed discussion on wandering and also links to some additional discussions on it.

      You can also email to us if you have more concerns on this or on other care-related aspects. That will enable more detailed discussions and suggestions.
