Alzheimer Mexico, I.A.P. is a Mexican non-profit organization that provides comprehensive care to people with Alzheimer's or similar dementia, their caregivers and family members to improve their quality of life.

Challenge

Dementias are increasingly frequent because age is a risk factor and life expectancy is increasing every day as a result of medical and technological development. Not only do they affect the patient, but the whole family and society. The lack of information, infrastructure and support makes the family feel lonely and collapsed. There are 50 million people with dementia in the world, a new case every 3 seconds. Are we ready to live this problem closely? We must be prepared.

Solution

We are a center specialized in comprehensive care for the family of patients with dementia such as Alzheimer's, with more than 15 years of experience. Our care model includes 6 multidisciplinary programs: Social Work, Psychology, Nursing, Physiotherapy, Geriatrics and Nutrition. We seek to be a hope of a new life for families, offering the services in our Day Center and the guidance and advice necessary for the management of the disease in our facilities and through informative events.

Long-Term Impact

We seek to prevent the collapse of caregivers and promote family functionality, as well as prevent immobility syndrome in patients with dementia and allow them to live with a better quality of life for longer. Alzheimer's disease still has no cure, but the disease can be managed as comfortably as possible.
