We are a non-profit social enterprise offering professional elderly care services in Kenya and beyond. Through technological innovation, we remain always passionate about graceful aging.
We focus primarily on the elderly and underserved members of the community who often attract the least attention. We catalyze the development of quality and comprehensive caregiving service delivery to this target group through certified community caregivers. Our approach is based on internationally tested and approved service delivery models that are tailor-made to fit the circumstances of each elderly person. Our goal is to become a continental model for robust, policy-oriented, well-tested and community accepted elderly caregiving service.
We empower the caregivers of the elderly with appropriate skills to enable them to build the capacity of the elderly and their immediate family members on graceful aging. We also engage external stakeholders (i.e. Community leaders, County and National Government officials), to create a critical awareness of the current gaps in the care offered to the elderly. This creates early buy-in among the stakeholders to support our elderly care service provision, and eventually stimulate the adoption of these services at the national level. The families of the elderly (in the diaspora and local cities and urban centers) will have full relief from the incessant anxiety about the condition of their elderly parents’ back home as they entrust AGEWATCH with the professional well-being of their loved ones at their retirement points.
A world where every elderly citizen can access quality elderly care services regardless of where they live.
To create, improve and maintain access to high quality and affordable elderly care services for graceful aging.

|Support Our Elderly & Vulnerable: COVID-19 Emergency Relief Support||Prior to the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic in Kenya on March 13, 2020, Agewatch Africa had planned to roll out daycare services from its Kisumu Centre in Ojola village, Kisumu West sub-county. The kick-off date of March 16, 2020, was negated by the subsequent social distancing control requirement for coronavirus. The initial select group of 24 elderly men and women (and many others within the sub-county) will now receive our domiciliary care from within their individual homes. This sudden change of our strategy requires the training of an additional 20 caregivers, each to be appropriately equipped with necessary hygiene tools and materials. Supporters of this vital cause can channel their donations through the Agewatch/GlobalGiving fundraising link: https://bit.ly/2RoIhE1||Online/Onsite||2020-04-09||2020-07-31||8 AM||5 PM||N/A||Ongoing|
