Nightingales Medical Trust (NMT) as it is known today began its humble journey as Nightingales Home Health Services in 1996 from a garage in Sadashivnagar, Bangalore. A pioneering service back then, the concept of Home Health Services was the brain child of two people who yearned to make a difference in eldercare.
While interacting with the beneficiaries of home health care, it was realized that apart from health issues, elders also had to deal with loneliness, emotional issues and financial insecurities. Dr. Radha and Mr. Raja felt that, if necessary facilities to cater to physical, emotional, financial and social needs of elders could be created, it could help elders age with dignity. Thus, Nightingales Medical Trust was founded as a non-profit aimed towards age care in 1998 to alleviate the problems faced by the elderly.
