About the project Edit

4get me not is a vulgarized informational website about AD and a non-profit organization committed to fulfil a social mission by raising awareness on Alzheimer's disease in the UAE through the 4get-me-not website and community events.

By building strong partnerships, it can improve the quality of life of patients, families and caregivers as they go through their journey with Alzheimer's disease (AD) and related disorders.

In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

This website is designed for readers from a non-medical background. It’s a collation of easy-to-understand information intended to demystify AD, and not to overwhelm readers with hard scientific facts.

It also create opportunities, events and an online platform related to AD for professionals and families who assist in garnering resources for 4get me not, as it works to meet the growing needs of an increasing aging population.

What is the social value of this project? Edit

With educational video uploads from Geriatricians and caregivers from Dubai and Belgium, this project seeks to reach out to as many families and friends living with Azheimer’s, and to let them know that there is hope – that we can have control over how we cope with this disease.
It also makes a positive impact on Seniors living with AD by encouraging healthy disease preventative lifestyles associated with brain health.

What is the potential of this project to expand and develop? Edit

What was the triggering factor of this project? Edit

Desiree's (founder) father was diagnosed with AD in 2011. It was difficult for her to find information of the disease in Dubai, as it is not available. There was never a media campaign of the Alzheimer Disease in Dubai.
