Groundbreaking initiative by sir william beveridge foundation
Who We Are
With the world’s population increasingly living further into old age, diseases such as dementia are set to become more prevalent. The appropriate care of people with this distressing condition across the world is patchy; even getting an accurate diagnosis is very difficult never mind receiving appropriate treatment and care. Yet it is a condition that can place great strain on health and social care systems particularly hospitals where most people with the condition will be sent, as there are no other alternatives. The Foundation’s work on dementia care in Bangladesh is groundbreaking and as well as raising awareness of the condition, the aim is to establish a necessary knowledge base and extend care and treatments across the country. The vision is to establish a number of dementia clinics over the coming years in different areas to help deal with the diagnosis and care of people with this very distressing condition. These clinics would then act as a platform for spreading this approach into other countries.

A Holistic Care — for Mrs. Amena Begum
Age of 70 years and a suspected case of Dementia. The members of the family were largely ignorant as to why she was behaving in a way she did. Finding unable to cope with her indulgences, they managed to reach Dementia Bangladesh. In addition to the counseling so given, she was taken in the dementia care services from us.
