  Chairperson Message
 
Mrs. Meera Pattabiraman,
Chairperson, Alzheimer’s and Related Disorders Society of India.
It was indeed a big honour to take over the chair of the national office of ARDSI from our founder Dr. Jacob Roy, who has become the chairman of Alzheimer’s Disease International. I felt humbled to have been conferred this immense responsibility. The sudden and sad death of Sqn. Ldr. KAR Nair was a huge shock and a big loss to ARDSI. He was one of the most distinguished and committed members and a dear and trusted colleague of mine for the past 10 years. The entire ARDSI family will sadly miss him and his selfless contributions to the organisation.

Having been associated with ARDSI for over 15 years and having served 3 terms as secretary general, I feel I have grown with the society and so am very aware of our strengths and weaknesses. Our biggest strength has been Dr. Jacob Roy who has devoted a major portion of his life for the cause of ARDSI. At the same time, as any organization grows, there will definitely be some challenges and problems and it is up to the board to get over them and make progress. Changes in the right direction in any expanding organisation signify growth and strength. So, as a management person, I will try to tackle some of these problems in the best possible manner. I would like to see ARDSI as a pan India society in the true sense of the term. The national office at Delhi will have to be strengthened and the chapters empowered. This can be done by improving the communication between the national office and the chapters and making governance more vibrant and effective. The success story of ARDSI in the state of Kerala, with the maximum number of chapters and dementia care service facilities, will have to be replicated in other parts of India and chapters will have to be set up in every state. There should be uniformity in all our programmes, whether it is with regard to awareness programs or training programs or service facilities; all the chapters of ARDSI should speak in the same voice and this will be our strength. Finally, having successfully launched the Dementia India report, we have some ambitious projects on hand like setting up the Alzheimer’s centre of excellence in Delhi and conducting the Asia pacific conference of ADI in 2014. All the chapters of ARDSI are the extended family members of the national office and together we can make every person with dementia lead a dignified life and every carer feel that there is someone out there to listen to him/her and offer a helping hand.
