  • Runa Chatterjee

    Are there any centers in Bhopal where a senior citizen suffering from dementia can go regularly for therapy or activity sessions?
    Thank you.

    • Dementia Care Notes

      I’m not aware of any. You can try contacting Gandhi Medical College to see if they are aware of any dementia-specific centres/ support services. Also, you can try the following for information: (1) Elder helpline (2) Local Helpage branch (3) Reputed occupational therapist/ rehab centre.

      Also, ask the National Dementia Helpline. They may have some updates on what is available. Contact them at: 04842808088

      In case you learn of any center, please do leave a comment here with the information; it may help other caregivers. Thanks!
