Support Graceful Aging in Kisumu Kenya

AGEWATCH PROGRAMS

We are a non-profit social enterprise offering professional elderly care services in Kenya and beyond. Through technological innovation, we are most passionate about graceful aging. We target the elderly and underserved (vulnerable) community members who often attract the least attention. We catalyze the development of quality and comprehensive caregiving service delivery to this target group through certified community caregivers. Based at the grassroots, we empower the caregivers with appropriate skills to enable them to build the capacity of the elderly and their immediate family members on graceful aging. Further, we engage external stakeholders (e.g. community, governmental, and faith-based leaders) to create a critical awareness of the current gaps in the care offered to the elderly. This builds early buy-in among the stakeholders to support our service model, and eventually stimulate the adoption of the services at the national level. Families of the elderly (locally and abroad/diaspora) will have full relief from the incessant anxiety about the condition of their elderly parents back home as they entrust us with the professional well-being of these loved ones. AGEWATCH aims to become a continental model for robust, policy-oriented, well-tested, and community accepted elderly care providers.

MISSION

To create, improve and maintain access to high quality and affordable elderly care services for graceful aging.

PROJECT SUMMARY

AGEWATCH Africa Foundation (AGEWATCH) is establishing the first-ever modern elderly care center in Kisumu County at Ojola village in Kisumu West Sub-County whose population is 172,821 (2019 Kenya census) including 8600 elderly persons.
