We work with people living with dementia, providing them with support in their homes.
We also support elderly people with mental illness, referring them to appropriate services for help and treatment.
BMF is dedicated to improving the lives of people living with dementia by supporting and empowering them. We strive to advance innovative and effective care solutions for them trhough collaboration with other organisations and institutions.
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
BMF colloborates with local and internaional partners ensuring that our services meet national and international standards and quality.
