Dementia support organizations and support groups may be able to help you even if they are not in your city. Even diagnosis and medical advice (non emergency) is available online, so it is possible to benefit from experts across the country, while sitting at home. See some general suggestions at this link.
The full list of dementia/ care resources in various Indian languages (currently Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Konkani, Malayalam, Marathi, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu, and Urdu) is at Dementia/ Alzheimer’s Resources in Indian Languages.
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.
