ALZHEIMER'S / DEMENTIA
Alzheimer's / Dementia
Dementia is a term used to describe a group of symptoms resulting from damage to brain cells which hinders the ability of brain cells to communicate with each other and thus affects a person’s thinking, behaviour and feelings. It includes disorders caused by abnormal brain changes.
A person having dementia can show a wide range of symptoms that inhibit his cognitive ability, thereby impeding his ability to perform everyday activities independently.
According to estimation, approximately 44 million people around the world are suffering from Alzheimer’s disease or a related form of dementia. Alzheimer’s neurodegenerative disorder that waste away brain cells eventually leading to neuron death. Alzheimer’s is common in the elder generation, and dementia in the older population results from Alzheimer’s disease. The disease progresses in stages, starting from forgetting recent events to a complete memory loss and hallucinations which disrupts the ability of Alzheimer’s patients to function independently. Through the Alzheimer’s and dementia charity program we lend a helping hand to such patients and fulfil their requirements and basic needs
There is no cure for Alzheimer’s disease. Medications and treatments aim to reduce the patient’s symptoms and slow the progression of the disease in the brain. Through your donations, we fund the various research programs aimed at finding the cure and prevention of Alzheimer’s.

How we are making a difference:
Alzheimer’s is a brain disorder that slowly destroys a person’s memory and thinking skills and eventually, makes the person completely incapable of managing simple day to day activities. Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia among old patients.
Presently, treatments for Alzheimer’s solely focus on helping people to maintain mental function, treating the underlying disease process, and managing behavioural symptoms. Medications and treatments aim to reduce the patient’s symptoms and slow the progression of the disease in the brain but there is no definite cure for this disease.
However, we are working towards this purpose and through your donations, we can fund research programs that work to find cures for Alzheimer’s and Dementia. We understand the physical, emotional and financial toil that families with old people suffering from Alzheimer’s and Dementia, go through. Thus, we help patients from all walks of life and spread awareness and support.
