Country Representative and Head of Operations - Bangladesh, Major General Jiban Kanai Das (Retd) - the HOB, reiterates Dementia Bangladesh is an initiative of Sir William Beveridge Foundation (SWBF).

SWBF is a UK based Internatioal Charity which opened up a branch in Bangladesh in 2007 when it was registered with the NGOs Affairs Bureau. Its flagship project is Elderly Homecare through which trained nurses/carers go to the residences of vulnerable adults to render health, personal and domestic cares. In so doing over the last 5 years, the Foundation observed a great number of service users are suffering from Alzheimer\\\'s disease or Dementia which s/he or the family members are blissfully ignorant of. The larger Bangladesh society fares no better. 

 

The Board of Trustees in London headed by Michael O\' Keefe,OBE and the Founder and Executive Director of SWBF Dr Rahman Jilani were briefed by the  HOB on this. As the life expectancy of Bangladesh populace is on the rise, it is feared the Dementia situation in Bangladesh would pose a big threat to the society in the not-too-distant future. Accordingly,SWBF signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Alzheimer\\\'s Australia (WA) Ltd. in Sepember 2010 and with Alzheimer\\\'s Disease International (ADI) in July 2011 with the aim of working together - in order to help improve the quality of life of people with Dementia and their access to advice,social care and services and also to raise awareness of condition among Bangladesh people generally and among  the health and social care professionals. This initiative is an expression of the vision stated in the MOUs.
