Welcome to my website! My name is Roma Ankolekar.
I started this website because of my family’s unfortunate experience dealing with dementia. My grandmother developed a type of dementia known as Alzheimer’s and recently passed away. There are many things that could have been done to improve her condition, however those steps were not taken due to lack of knowledge/support about that certain type of dementia.The journey motivated me to spread awareness about dementia, as it is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States.
Through this website you can learn about dementia, find out about the different types, symptoms,prevention, treatments, information for caretakers, and the latest research. I hope you will be able to find the resources you need to help a loved one who is showing signs of, or already has developed a type of dementia.
