This was followed by sharing of care-givers experiences, where five care-givers came out with their experiences of handling with the Dementia persons.

The meeting concluded with family members/care-givers writing their concerns regarding the issues they have with the patients and the ARDSI volunteers said that they would get back to them with the possible innovations
