Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:
In order to make school children aware of dementia, specific areas were covered in a joyful way. They can be aware of it at an early stage. We are serving the dementia population to make them aware of general symptoms changing in their grandparents so that they can discuss it with parents for early detection and diagnosis. Later we received feedback from school principal. Also they had first exposure of this type and now want it on regular intervals.
