Devika doesn’t have many memories of happiness and laughter with her mother. Ever since Yamuna was diagnosed with dementia about four years ago, and Devika became her primary caregiver, their troubled relationship has increasingly put them in adversarial roles.
It is said that in life you don’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you will find that you always get what you need. My experience with Adveka Foundation was one such happy coincidence.

It has already been a year since Adveka Foundation began working to promote awareness about mental health, and to ensure uniform access to mental health services for people from all sections of society.
