Dementia has woven its intricate web around millions of seniors nationwide. The implications are daunting - from severe memory lapses, disorientation, and aimless wandering, to struggling with everyday tasks, dwindling social abilities, and challenging behaviors.

For those living with Alzheimer's and their immediate families, this translates to enduring immeasurable suffering. The lack of a cure compounds the situation, heaping physical, financial, and emotional strains on caregivers. Their tireless devotion, as they watch their loved ones become dependent shadows of their former selves, is heart-wrenching.

> Presently, nearly 90 lakh people in India bear the weight of dementia care.
> Forecast of 2036 reveals a staggering estimate of 1.7 Crore Indians grappling with dementia. The repercussions are far-reaching.
> Considering the impact on an average of two family members per person with dementia, we're confronted with a staggering reality: over 50 million Indians will become unwilling participants in this challenging journey.
