History of ARDSI

Alzheimer’s & Related Disorders Society of India (ARDSI) was established in 1992 by Dr. Jacob Roy Kuriakose along with few like-minded individuals. Based in a small village in Kerala, Dr. Roy realised that India did not have the required infrastructure or care facilities when his father was diagnosed with dementia. With the support of his peer groups, Dr. Roy established the first care centre in Kunnamkulam, Kerala, under the aegis of the Alzheimer’s Disease International, UK.

It was in 1994, after witnessing a Delhi-based family’s desperation while seeking help for a patient with severe memory loss, that Mrs. Nirmala Narula established the Delhi Chapter of Alzheimer’s & Related Disorder Society of India (ARDSI). There was a pressing need to create a local support group by utilizing physical, emotional and scientific resources. By collaborating with the ARDSI National office in Kerala, Ms. Narula initiated the services of the Delhi Chapter, which have continuously grown and evolved over the years.
