Realizing the need to be greater than that of a physiological nature, the organization got registered as an NGO to enable it meet the raising demand of support in partnership with well-wishers and strategic partners.

In 2017, the Alzheimer’s disease International, which is the international federation of Alzheimer’s associations around the world in official relations with World Health Organisation, bestowed ADOK as an official chapter
