It was indeed a golden opportunity for me to visit the Nightingales Dementia Care Centre attached to ETCM Mission Hospital at Kolar on 17th August 2016. The Centre is doing yeoman service to the Community in general and to Dementia patients in particular. I noticed the following with particular interest: 1. The Tele-Dementia Management using technology. Through this the patients can communicate with their dear and near ones in any part of the world and caregivers can keep in constant touch with the patients’ relatives. 2. The spacious ward with very clean atmosphere. 3. Music Therapy and Pet Therapy. 4. Highly diligent care given to the inmates in terms of maintenance of the Centre, personal hygiene of the inmates. 5. Highly motivated and dedicated caregivers. 6. Activity Centre which keeps the inmates occupied.
