Dementia Unite: Working to positively UNITE services for people and families living with dementia and alzheimers, by always promoting a mandate of unity and cooperation across all service sectors, and shining a spotlight on the pockets of really incredible excellence for others to aspire to.
Let’s Get Talking: Channeling South African’s unique sense of community and resilience through like-minded partnerships with individuals, communities, businesses and organisations to help EDUCATE the need to..
Strip away the deep layers of stigma, embarrassment, denial and guilt endemic in South African society.
Expel the many myths and misunderstandings in local and rural communities that can often lead to tragic outcomes (dementia doesn’t discern by any social norm, let alone culture). Pioneering work is being done by others in this field and DROP’s deep sense of community will always aim to add value to this.
DROP In | By | Off: A slightly longer term initiative is to develop a unique dementia and alzheimers aware and informed lifestyle RESPITE destination to include a Drop In Cafe, Drop By Therapy Centre and Drop Off Day Care Hub.
DROP gratefully welcomes donor support from individuals, communities, businesses and grant organisations to be able to expand and accelerate it’s work. No government funding is received.
