First of its kind in India, ARDSI is extended across 20 states of India with 12dementia care centres and 18 acknowledged regional offices (chapters). ARDSI is at present in the forefront to disseminate knowledge about Dementia and community Services.

ARDSI Cochin chapter has thus become an officially recognised chapter for Dementia care services at Ernakulam region under the purview of ARDSI national governing counsel.
