First Day Care Center to be established in Karachi with the help of Hamdard Foundation
A delegation of Alzheimer’s Pakistan held a meeting with Mrs. Sadia Rashid, President Hamdard Foundation and Chancellor, Hamdard University at Karachi. Alzheimer’s Pakistan delegation comprised of Dr. Hussain Jafri, Secretary General Alzheimer’s Pakistan and Dr. Sarfraz Jafri, Coordinator, Alzheimer’s Pakistan Karachi.
Dr. Hussain Jafri informed Sadia Rashid that with the increase in the life expectancy, the number of people with dementia are also increasing in the country. However, there are no services being provided by the state. Dr. Hussain Jafri also highlighted on Alzheimer’s Care Services provided by Alzheimer’s Pakistan in the country. He requested Mrs. Sadia Rashid for help in establishing the first Dementia Daycare Center in Karachi.
Mrs. Sadia Rashid said that Dementias including Alzheimer’s disease are becoming a big problem and the country is not ready to effectively deal with this growing problem due to which patients and families are suffering. She promised to help in developing the much-needed Alzheimer’s care services in Karachi. In this regard she pledged to provide a ward at Imam Zainulabideen Hospital, Nazimabad, which is currently being renovated to establish the first Daycare Center for people with Dementia.
Alzheimer’s Pakistan is extremely grateful to Mrs. Sadia Rashid and Hamdard Foundation for their generous support in establishing the first Daycare Center for people with Dementia in Karachi.
