  1. Are there any centers in Bhopal where a senior citizen suffering from dementia can go regularly for therapy or activity sessions?
    Thank you.

    1. I’m not aware of any. You can try contacting Gandhi Medical College to see if they are aware of any dementia-specific centres/ support services. Also, you can try the following for information: (1) Elder helpline (2) Local Helpage branch (3) Reputed occupational therapist/ rehab centre.

      Also, ask the National Dementia Helpline. They may have some updates on what is available. Contact them at: 04842808088

      In case you learn of any center, please do leave a comment here with the information; it may help other caregivers. Thanks!

  2. My father is now 81 years old. He has developed Alzimer-Dimenthia. He and my mother-78, they only are staying with each other at Nagpur. Now he is becoming violent and suddenly leaves home without notice and disappears. I want guidance in this case and help centre’s address. Please send me helpline as well as if there is such home where care will be provided. I am their eldest daughter and in between I have given six months, but due to my livelihood I cannot stay more..
    Please guide.
    Thanks.Lata P.M.

  3. My father 84 is suffering from dementia and in the recent past has become aggressive and violent. They are based in Ahmedabad. If you could suggest some support group I will be really great full. Kindly reply as soon as possible.

    1. I am not aware of a support group in Ahmedabad, but if you want some help, you can try two things:
      1> Contact Varishta, an Ahmedabad-based entity working in the dementia domain, and see if someone can talk to your parents or give some support. See
      2> If your parents are comfortable with Internet, it is possible to become part of some online community and get some degree of companionship/ support. You can email for more information on such groups, or connect on Facebook, and it will be possible to then share some Facebook group links, etc.

  4. Hi, My father aged near 70..staying alone back home in Punjab, India. And I noticed he starts repeating things very frequently…I am staying abroad with family..and no one is at back home for his care..except neighbourers and now a days his trust on others are also getting finished…I am very much worried about him…sometimes life looks meaningless…but I cannot come back to home…that is why my condition too become depressing…I don’t know what to do…if somebody reading this and can help me..Please tell me what to do in this situation.

  5. My father is 77 years old and recently he got diagnosed with Alzheimer-Dementia. He is getting treatment from Neuropsychiatrist from Hyderabad. Please let me know any daycare centre in Bhopal who can support him. My mother is struggling with him. Please let me know any daycare centre where he can get some attention during day time.

    1. Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be any day care for dementia in Bhopal, and no leads could be obtained from any of the dementia volunteers/ professionals contacted after receiving your query. Will let you know if some information comes later. Meanwhile, some possibilities:
      1> Please contact various local senior citizen helplines or organizations, including Helpage, local Rotary, nearby clubs etc., as they may have some leads. Some places suitable for seniors may also be okay for someone with dementia, especially if the person is in early stages.
      2> Consider getting someone to visit at home to help with activities or to just give company for some hours to give some relief to your mother. Usually occupational therapists may be able to suggest how to keep him occupied, or you can also see ideas on the page at to see if there is something suitable. Friends, neighbours, students, or trained attendants may be able to help with these for some time.

      In case you find something that works, please do share back, as it may help others. Thanks!!

  6. Are there any centers in Odisha,(bhubaneswar/nayagarh) for senior citizen suffering from dementia. Or can some one guide ?

    1. Please contact Silver Age Foundation for Elders as mentioned above to see if they have any useful information for you.
