DEMCLINIC & DEMLINK APP

Dementia in India: The Dementia India report 2020 estimated 6 million people above the age of 60 have dementia. This translates to 1 in 27 people above the age of 60. The numbers are expected to increase in the coming decades. Current services available for dementia are inadequate. Around 90% of people with dementia remain undiagnosed. People receiving the diagnosis do not have access to quality care, treatment services, and support systems. There are ample challenges to getting access to diagnosis and care which include lack of specialists, dearth of trained professionals, poor awareness, the stigma associated with mental health, and dementia not being a public health priority. There is an urgent need for accessible, effective, and affordable services models for dementia diagnosis and care.

DemClinic: DemClinic is India's first expert-led cognitive assessment platform for the elderly. DemClinic leverages telemedicine technology to increase access to dementia screening, diagnosis, and care. The platform will help in getting timely diagnoses and faster access to experts. This initiative will reduce the need for travel, eliminate the risk of contagious infection, mitigate the stigma by providing confidential assessment and provide equal access to care in the community. The goal of the platform is to reduce the treatment gap and circumvent issues pertaining to distance, scarcity of experts and indirect costs of seeking clinical services.
