Our story begins in 2004 when Richard Waindi – the Founder & CEO of AgeWatch – found himself caring for his ageing mum. Living over 500KM away from his mum in Nairobi City, Richard made frequent trips to visit and care for her. Soon, everyday tasks became more challenging and by 2013, she was unable to live on her own. Although, Richard searched all of Kisumu county and its neighbors for a caregiver, he found none. As his mum’s condition worsened, neighbours acted as caregivers, but they were unskilled and turnover was problematic. In July 2015, at 93 years old, his mum died. Inspired by the pleasure of caring for her and being motivated to make a difference in the lives of seniors and the underserved, Richard founded AgeWatch Africa.
