Tips to locate trained attendants The resources listed above may be able to provide home care/ attendants trained for dementia, or they may point you to other resources. Also, please check the comments left by various site visitors, as some of these may point to organizations that other caregivers have used. Please satisfy yourself about any service/ facility before using it.

Unfortunately, it is very difficult to get attendants trained for dementia. You may need to use general attendants and train them on dementia yourself or with the help of volunteers. Our page here, Using Trained Attendants for Dementia Home Care, discusses this topic in detail. You may also find our Caregiving Essential Toolkit useful.

General tips for locating relevant resources:

  • A list of local services can usually be obtained by surfing the Internet using keywords and the name of the city, and looking for various types of services. Most cities will have some home care services, old age homes, nursing agencies, etc. The larger hospitals of the city will usually have memory clinics to help the initial diagnosis of dementia. Search for "memory clinic" combined with your city name and other such phrases.
  • Use various combinations and alternate city names for more suitable results.For example, you may look for Pune, Poona, Puna , or whatever else you consider useful. Search using locality names also.
  • Updates/ fresh data on dementia support facilities/ services may also be available from the National Dementia Helpline ( 0484-277-5088). E-mail: or other helplines handled by the ARDSI National Office (09846198471,09846198786, 09846198473)
  • The reception/ nurses at local hospitals often know about 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)

Also note, contact numbers and addresses keep changing. If you have an problems old number/ name of hospital/ doctor, etc., get the latest details using local telephone inquiry/ assistance services.

  1. Sorry , I dont think ‘Jagruti Rehab’ is ideal place for person with dementia and Alzheimer’s . They keep schizophrenia and other ‘mental’ illness together.
    Person with dementia/Alzheimer’s cant be treated and kept with other mental illness people. They have different need , care givers , age and standard of care .
    Person with dementia/Alzheimer’s its more Care then Cure that works .

    1. Dr. Amar Shinde of Jagruti has written to clarify that they have separate wards for dementia. To quote: “at Jagruti, we are having separate dementia ward with mostly patients in moderate to severe stages of dementia… we have currently 30-40 dementia patients, many of them are incontinent, violent, not eating, poor self care…. we provide persistent care, supervision & 24 hrs medical care….” and “its a rehab for three different sections, psychiatry, de-addiction & dementia currently… we are trying to provide as much homely environment as possible with all facilities of hospital… dementia patients may require lot of medical care” (Clarification was given on Facebook on June 27, 2013)

      Note that, as for any service/ facility listed, site visitors are requested to evaluate the facility’s suitability and reliability themselves to decide whether it suits their needs. Some evaluation suggestions are included at and at

  2. Hello this is Dr Amar Shinde (Neuro-Psychiatrist)
    I visited last month Kinoko Espoir Hospital & Soujashi-Yamate welfare center, Okayama, Japan, which are the dedicated facilities for dementia & geriatrics. They have very good facility & very young attendants working with the dementia patients. For Dementia patients good hygiene, food & exercise are the most important things to improve their quality of life than medicines. We are working on their protocol currently at Jagruti Dementia Care.

  3. As the result of a discussion on our Facebook page for care families we have the name of an agency for Home care staff, recommended by a service user in Pune, that I’d like to share here … HEMA, an agency that operates out of Tingre Nagar run by a lady called Jothi and her son Vikram. Phone +919226845318. It is important that any person aiming to hire from this or any other agency does verify the appropriateness and desired quality level of attendant for themselves. Would like to add here a link to our Facebook page for caregivers as well :-

  4. Presently i am M.E student. I am working on automatic diagnosis of Alzheimer disease using EEG signals. I am in search of medical research center where exactly the diagnosis of this disease is actually done………..pls suggest any research center in pune or mumbai……..

    1. I don’t know what you mean by “exactly the diagnosis of this disease is actually done” and am unaware of any approved definite and “automatic” diagnosis criteria of AD without autopsy. However, you can contact senior consultants at any major hospital’s neurology/ psychiatry department to get in touch with doctors who do AD diagnosis. The Pune and Mumbai pages on this site have some possible contacts. You can also contact ARDSI Mumbai or ARDSI Greater Mumbai; check our Mumbai page at:

  5. OK thank you for your reply……….automatic diagnosis means that early detection of disease in early stage….by analyzing the EEG waveform & automatically doing engineering application we can detect the disease……

    1. Okay. Could you please give any reference you have for “automatic diagnosis” using EEG. So far, the only certain and approved definite diagnosis for AD is after an autopsy, though there is some proposals on whether biomarkers can be used for this when the person is still alive. Is EEG analysis one such research direction?

    2. Hi Dear Nilesh & Respected Swapna,
      Nilesh, great thinking for early diagnosis Of Dementia.
      But EEG is not providing much information for Dementia, Currently we diagnose Dementia on MRI & clinical Examination,
      But yes we can go for it as some changes in EEG can suggest it.
      We have lots of patients of Dementia Both OPD & IPD (40-50 patients at a time) basis.
      Also currently we have Dr Sujit Jagtap MBBS, DM(Neurology), Special Fellowship in Epilepsy Joined our Center as Consultant Neurologist with a good EEG Lab & good Experience with lots of papers published in National & International Conferences
      You can Visit @ Jagruti Rehabilitation center, Pune for further Information, or Call Me on 09371425026
      Regards Dr Amar Shinde Consultant Psychiatrist

  6. Dr.Amar Sir can i visit your rehabilitation center. Or can i have a permission to meet you ? i want to see the eeg lab as you mentioned in your reply. also i would like to meet Dr.sujit jagtap…………..pls i want to the eeg lab.

    material for automated diagnosis includes the IEEE, springer papers & some scope for future directions as given by researchers.

  7. is another facility, based at Clover Palisades, NIBM-Kondhwa Road.

    (Dementia Care Notes adds: A tentative entry was made for Epoch based on this and the information on their website, and a query was sent to Epoch in August 2014 for clarifications on some of the statements made on their website. No response was received. However, subsequently, based on more data and also phone conversations, more details for the facility were added in 2017. Site visitors contacting Epoch (or any other facility) are requested to evaluate the facility’s suitability and reliability themselves to decide whether it suits their needs. Some evaluation suggestions are included at and at

  8. Where can I get the EEG database of Alzheimer & Dementia patients in Pune…………???? Is it possible to get in Noble Hospital in Pune
