Thus, Nightingales Medical Trust (NMT), a non-governmental, secular and charitable organization was founded in the year 1998 to alleviate the different problems faced by the elderly. Striving to strengthen family bonds and promote community-based support systems, the Trust has conceived and established various innovative and need based projects focusing on dementia care, active ageing, elder abuse, social integration, economic empowerment and capacity building. Due to operational reasons, in April 2014, the management of Nightingales Home Health Services was handed over to M/s. Medwell Ventures Private Limited which has been continuing the home care services under the same name. This hand over does not affect the functioning of Nightingales Medical Trust in any way.
