My father is a resident at Nightingales Centre for Ageing and Alzheimer's. I am very happy with the quality of care given to him. The caregivers are kind and make sure residents are fed and cleaned in a timely fashion. Care is taken to ensure general cleanliness and hygiene in the common areas as well. I really appreciate that Dr. Hegde, Shruthi and Asha have been a constant, caring presence in the two years that my father has been here.
We attended a half day session conducted by Nightingales Lifesaving Services. It was a very good, informative session. Life saving sessions like these are very helpful and useful. Detailed and in-depth knowledge of both adult and pediatric CPR with live sessions as well as practical sessions for each of the participants makes it like a real life scenario. Thank you Mr. Satish Kumar and Ms. Madhurya for the valuable session. - By Team Better Fitness for You (BFY)

I am very happy with the way my mother is being looked after at NMT. Everyone is so empathetic and helpful. Looking after Alzheimer's and Dementia patients requires a lot of patience and a caring attitude. All caregivers are imbibed with these qualities and are well-trained. There is good teamwork amongst them. I must mention that, ideally, there should be continuity of a caregiver looking after a particular patient but I understand that this may not always be possible in spite of best intentions due to staff shortage/ attrition.
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.

I am extremely glad to have interned at a place that serves the aged and aims at enhancing their well-being. My experience at NMT gave me a new perspective and direction for my future. We had the fortune to interact with the residents one on one, be a part of their activities, consult the experts, seek guidance from supervisors, conduct workshops and to learn to take assessments and case histories. The best experience, however, was my bonding with the residents. NMT has helped me have a fresh outlook in my life; it has taught me to empathize with people, identify my strengths and weaknesses and has been a beautiful experience to cherish forever. I am more than happy to have been a part of NMT.
NMT is not only taking care of the physical needs of the elders with dementia, but their cognitive, emotional and behavioural systems of the elders are also focussed on. Through our interaction with the care givers it was evident that they absolutely enjoy working here and their work gives them peace and relaxation. As an intern I got an opportunity to learn about dementia and aging, something which I had only basic information before I came here. I got to meet amazing people: the psychologists, the caregivers and the residents themselves. The elders residing in NMT have different stories to tell and it was heart-warming to receive their affection. I feel fortunate to have interned at Nightingales Medical Trust and I saw myself growing, both in knowledge and as a person. It was a gratifying experience for me.

Nightingales offers 24 hour care in a very professional environment. There is a clear culture of good and attentive care which is instilled in all the staff and the strength of compassion is very evident – everyone has a smile and nothing at all is too much bother for them. With safe, kind and professional hands, commendably high standards have been achieved in all aspects of my mum’s care right from House Keeping, Nursing and the Medical staff, all of who provide a level of care and medical treatment that far exceeds anything we have seen or experienced in older people’s care homes in the UK. The cheerful, friendly atmosphere and the community feeling within the hospital have gone a long way to ensure that my mother’s stay at Nightingales is a positive one, given us peace of mind. Being so far away, when we last visited her she said “I am really happy staying here”. Nightingales is a centre of excellence. Thank you to the wonderful multi-disciplinary team, led by Dr Soumya Hegde
“I have studied upto 10th Standard and worked as a clerk cum supervisor at a Govt. Hospital. I am single and my aged parents are dependent on me. After retirement I needed to continue working to support myself and my aged parents. For sometime I struggled to find a job. When I came to know about Nightingales Jobs 60+ I immediately registered for a job and also for training in computer skills to improve my job prospects. After completing computer training successfully, I was selected as a marketing executive for a private company. I am grateful to Nightingales Jobs 60+ for helping me gain confidence through computer training and for helping me find a suitable job.” Laxmi Hegde, aged 61 years is a student of the 16th batch of computer training at Nightingales Jobs 60+
