Organization Details

We provide elderly care services in Kenya.

Impact Story

In Kenya, there are no formal structures to look after older people in their retirement. The retirees return to their rural homes away from urban centers and are left alone unattended since their younger family members remain in urban centers fending for themselves. No skilled caregivers are available locally to look after the elderly. This leads to immense suffering prior to their demise. Since its founding a couple of years ago, Agewatch Africa Foundation is already creating needed awareness by training locals into professional caregivers ready to offer domiciliary (home) care, daycare, and residential care services to the elderly and underserved. We already piloted in Kisumu West sub-county, now working to scale to the remaining six sub-counties in Kisumu County. The result is graceful aging for the elderly, and a major relief to their families who work offsite away from them, some in the diaspora and endeavor to remit resources back home for the wellbeing of these elderly folks. Such sacrifices are yielding more meaningful results compared to before.
