Being a full time caregiver can be tough. Nightingales Dementia Day Care Centres are set up to provide the much needed respite for caregivers and also to ensure that persons with dementia (PwD) are taken care of in a stimulating social environment.
At the day care centres, the PwDs are assessed initially and based on the assessment, care plans are designed. All activities of the centres are overseen by dementia experts.
An ideal day at the centre has a set of therapeutic activities that are planned, designed and reviewed periodically by the care team, family carer and the PwD. Full day and half day programs are offered – these include orientation therapy, physical exercises, social activities, cognitive rehabilitation and stimulation activities like memory games, reminiscence therapy and sensory stimulation activities like pet/doll therapy, gardening, music and dance therapy.
The Nightingales Trust Dementia Care Centre at KR Fort Road is is housed at the premises provided by Mr. Basant Poddar's family. Our thanks to them for this support.

We were worried to leave our aged mother alone at home when we had to go out for work. After a long search NMT seemed to be the best place in terms of facility and care. So having trusted we have placed her in these safe hands. We are now at peace. They keep her busy with activities so that she doesn’t feel left alone. The care shown towards her is very heart warming. It’s amazing to see how she’s become calm and more alert and is getting more involved in daily activities like reading newspaper and helping us in folding the clothes. We are immensely grateful for the staff for taking care of my mother so patiently and keeping her in safe hands...

About 8 years, we noticed a change in my father. My mother was the first to point it out. He sometimes wasn’t sure where he was and he forgot things. He being the head of the family and independent we relied on him for everything. It was very difficult for him and all of us to accept his condition His doctor referred us to your organization. At the beginning stage he was very reluctant to come to the Centre but as the days went by he enjoys doing activities and physiotherapy that you provide. He enjoys interacting with people and doing group activities. He even teaches the staff or other residents in the organization about Pranic healing. He is always happy and cheerful when he comes to the Centre. My father’s doctor was particular that he goes for walks. He is given sufficient exercise at the Centre. It is much safer than going for walks on the streets. We are very grateful that you provide caring transportation and we don’t have to worry about his safety. I hope you continue to help him and other patients in the best possible way.

I am impressed by Nightingales Medical Trust in their professionalism and in understanding the specific needs of my father. My father is taken care with love and affection.Every time he comes back home he is very happy and looks forward to go to the Centre again. We see how he enjoys doing the activities in the center and has started writing again. I am very happy with the service Nightingales Medical Trust is providing and the staff here are always cooperative.
Keep up the good work
