“In India, the family is the care-giver for AD patients. A majority lack the basic understanding of the ailment, there is scarce information, awareness and special services for such patients and even for families. Sometimes, it becomes hard to even diagnose AD because patients and families are not forthright and ill-informed,” she says.

Worldwide, Alzheimer’s is found in at least one among 10 persons who are more than 80-year-old and one out of four persons who are above 90 years. In India, there are nearly 50 lakh dementia patients of which, roughly 70 to 80 per cent have Alzheimer’s.
