As part of our commitment to make quality dementia care affordable and accessible, Nightingales Medical Trust established the ETCM - Nightingales Dementia Care Centre in 2014 at Kolar, which is 60 kms from Bangalore.

Location: This is India’s first telemedicine-enabled Dementia Care facility and is located in the premises of the Ellen Thoburn Cowen Memorial (ETCM) Hospital. This 50-bed unit is set up with an open garden and terrace. It has been designed to suit the needs of persons with dementia such as therapeutic environment, space for walking and detailed activity schedule for all the residents. The Centre is at a 60 min drive from Bangalore through a National Highway and is less than 90 min drive from Bangalore airport.

Advantages: The advantage that this facility enjoys is that it is located in a hospital premise and hence, all medical emergencies are handled immediately in the hospital. The centre has specially trained caregivers and qualified nurses who monitor the residents and provide care and support to them. The centre is based on the Hub-and-Spokes model. Here, the clinical team constantly monitors the centre using specially designed Teledementia Management Software from Bangalore.

The services at the ETCM - Nightingales Dementia Care Centre includes memory clinic, short term or respite care, in-patient admission for treatment of challenging behaviours, and long-term residential care. 

An initial assessment is done at the Nighingales Centre for Ageing & Alzheimer's in Bangalore to ascertain the diagnosis and the needs of the patient. Once the family decides on the type of room, formalities for a short term admission are completed. All long term admissions have to be preceded by a short term admission. This allows us to assess the patient better and also allows the family to ensure that they are getting the best care possible before committing to long term admission.

4 sharing, 5 sharing and 10 sharing.

Admission can be processed after assessment by the Clinical Team.

Payment details (by cash or DD or bank transfer) of Refundable deposit, non refundable admission fees and bed charges for the period it is booked.
