The most common symptom of Alzheimer’s disease is forgetfulness. People with Alzheimer’s may also have problems with language, calculation skills, or following instructions. They may experience confusion about the date or time, or get lost in their own home.
It was in 2013 when 4get-me-not, the only Social Enterprise on Alzheimer’s Disease (AD), was opened in United Arab Emirates and the Middle East. The founder of the company is Desirée Vlekken – wherein they wanted to create a social platform for families and caregivers of AD patients, mainly seniors – aged 60 and above.
4get-me-not creates awareness of the importance of quality of life, especially for seniors. By fighting against a disease like Alzheimer’s Disease, you can help those living with the disorder.
AD is a global health issue that affects one in three seniors. 4get-me-not has been working with the Alzheimer’s Society and the World Health Organization to create a community to address this issue in a new way.
