Medico-legal concerns in dementia
The 8th Annual Conference of the Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders Society of India (ARDSI) was held in Goa from October 4 to 6, 2002. The theme was timely: “Improving the Quality of Care” for the demented in this country, a number estimated by some at 26.6 lakh people over the age of 65 years. The meeting was attended by about 180 persons from India and abroad. At the inaugural session, Dr K Jacob Roy, President of ARDSI, detailed what his Society had done and what remained to be achieved. Dr C J Vas, Vice-President of the Goa Chapter, talked of the Alzheimer’s home – India’s first – to be established by the Goa group and the need to raise Rs 1.5 crore for the restoration and renovation of a 400-year-old house donated by a well wisher, the Gonsalves family of Britonna, Goa, and Bombay.
