We work mainly, with people living with dementia. Our organization is embeded in the communities that we serve, providing support to clients and their families in their homes.
We also work with the elderly with mental illness, referring them to appropriate services for assistance and treatment.
We are dedicated to improving the lives of people living with dementia by supporting and empowering them and those that care for them. We will keep striving to advance innovative and effective care solutions for them.
Prospective clients, undergo an initial assessment for dementia. After that we refer them to hospitals for tests and formal diagnoses.
After diagnosis, clients come back to us for post diagnosis support. We work with them to come up with a care plan to address their needs.
We engage in dementia awareness activities in communities, schools, churches, at public events and with other service providers.
World Alzheimer's Day, the KZN MHA beachfront march, radio shows and workshops were some of the highlights of 2017. We expect more in 2018
