Who We Are

We are a nonprofit organisation established in January 2016 by a group of affected caregivers, ADOK works to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s, and provide support to those affected with Alzheimer’s and other forms of Dementia.

In 2017, the Alzheimer’s disease International, which is the international federation of Alzheimer’s associations around the world in official relations with World Health Organisation, recognised ADOK as an official chapter.

Our Vision

A Kenya without Dementia.


To demystify the belief of what dementia is by creating a society where those living with Dementia are supported, accepted and are able to peacefully live in their communities without fear or prejudice

Our Scope

Raise awareness on Alzheimer’s in Kenya

Build capacity of care givers at all levels to provide certified basic care to people affected with Alzheimer’s
