Alzheimer's Association Lebanon - About
Alzheimer's Association Lebanon
Awareness being the major key to break the silence surrounding Alzheimer, ALZHEIMER’S ASSOCIATION LEBANON was created as a non-profit organization with the mission of improving the quality of life for people with dementia and their caretakers.
Its primary objective is raising public awareness throughout Lebanon and the Middle East, hoping to eliminate the fear caused by Alzheimer’s mental disorder.
ALZHEIMER’S ASSOCIATION LEBANON also aims to spread in-depth knowledge of the disease and to decrease the burden of care on families and encourage partnerships between professionals.
Raising community awareness and stimulating involvement can be a tricky journey in repressive societies like ours. Thus, creating an Alzheimer’s association seemed a solution and an efficient way to achieve help for the largest possible number of people.
ALZHEIMER’S ASSOCIATION LEBANON aims at becoming the pioneer in the Arab world to disseminate information, reduce stigmatization and unveil the darkness about Alzheimer’s disease.
