Message From Chairperson
Mrs. Meera Pattabiraman,
Chairperson, Alzheimer’s and Related Disorders Society of India.
Dear Friends,
Warm Greetings from National Administrative Office of Alzheimer's & Related Disorders Society of India!

It is my pleasure to place before you the Annual Report for the year 2018-19 that has been a phenomenal one for the ARDSI family. After a year-long process of holding consultative meetings in different zones of India, the National Office brought out the Dementia India Strategy document.

Thanks to the efforts of Bangalore Chapter, this document was handed over to the Union Minister for Health and Family Welfare, Sri J P Nadda at the ARDSI national conference in Bangalore who in his inaugural address gave public assurance that his government will come out with a National plan for dementia soon. Since then, we at the national office, have been following up with Officials in the Health department and have had talks about initiatives in preparing materials to raise awareness at the national level, training of primary health workers and formation of an expert committee for preparing a comprehensive national plan for dementia.

ARDSI, in association with NIMHANS, has started work on a four-year international research project, Strengthening Responses to Dementia in Developing Economies (STRiDE). While the global roll-out was held in March in London, in India the project was launched in June in Bangalore as part of the Theory of Change Workshop. The project will give a big boost in bringing together all stakeholders and generating scientific data to strengthen the national plan.

We are grateful to Nils De Mol Van Otterloo for his generosity of a grant from his Family Foundation to strengthen the national office for the next three years that will be used to hold national programmes for creating awareness and dementia friendly communities, conducting training programmes and developing the country plan for dementia.

With support of the Asia Pacific Regional office of ADI, we have developed modules for training master trainers for training family and professional care givers and the first workshop was held in Delhi in January. Ten ARDSI chapters took part in the programme and we are following up with the chapters to continue the Dementia Care Skills training programmes in their respective states and regions. In association with Mediknit and Indian Academy of Neurology, we have launched the online training programme for medical professionals for timely diagnosis, care and management.
