Who We Are

Alzheimer’s Association of Kenya was started in 2007 by caregivers affected by Alzheimer’s disease with the aim of starting a support group to help each other as caregivers in dealing with the disease. With time however, the needs of the caregivers evolved and more people reached out to the organization seeking assistance. Hence,there was need for the association to re-strategies to have more impact country wide

That said, the association changed into a Non- Governmental Organization (NGO) to be able to raise funds in order to reach out to communities outside Nairobi, create and facilitate training programs for care givers and help meet financial needs of some families affected by these condition. In January 2016, Alzheimer’ and Dementia Organization Kenya was created.
