This World Alzheimer’s Day, Portea and Milaap want to help out those living with the condition. Alzheimer’s might not be curable, but the lives of the patients can always be made comfortable with their dignity intact. That’s what Hope – Ek Asha tries to do every day - helping the caregivers do their best for their loved ones. Portea provides caregiving and medical assistance for many Alzheimer’s patients at their homes.
While they continue to do that, this year in association with Milaap, Portea wants to bring some positive difference in the lives of the Alzheimer’s patients being taken care of by Hope – Ek Asha.
