Caregiver support groups

We are happy to connect local Caregiver support groups with communities of caregivers.  This space on the website is being provided to expand the reach of local support groups so that more people who are carers of persons with health and ability challenges are able to find or create similar support groups.

    Hello Debashish, While we do not have a specific source, perhaps you could check with http://www.manasa.in/ if they are able to help?

      There are lots of agencies that supply attendants in Bangalore, but not all may be suitable for your needs, so you will have to check them out.

      A possible way of getting the names and phone numbers of agencies is calling up the elder helpline (as most people need attendants for elders at home): 1090 OR 080-22943226

      NIMHANS is another place where the helpdesk/ nursing staff may have list of suitable agencies, as persons who consult at NIMHANS may be needing such attendants for their wards.

      I am not sure the following links would be useful, but here is a link of a parents association, http://www.kpamrc.org who may know of attendants who help with disabled children. Some such information may fit your need. And here is another where they may be able to give you pointers: http://www.apd-india.org

      Hope this helps.
