Nightingales Medical Trust (NMT) is a registered, non-profit, voluntary organisation working for the well-being of the elderly in and around Bangalore. While the traditional joint family system is fast disintegrating in India, Nightingales Medical Trust is striving to keep family bonds intact through various innovative, family-based support systems for elders of different socio-economic groups
Every day, over 800 elders benefit from the services of Nightingales Medical Trust. Some of Nightingales’ projects have emerged as models and are being replicated in other parts of the country. Besides involving the community in all the programmes, Nightingales Medical Trust is successfully partnering with government agencies such as the National Institute of Social Defense, Bangalore City Police and Bangalore City Corporation.
