On 24th September 2020, Stowelink members participated in a screening activity on Calvary Grounds, Embakasi Central. The activity’s main purpose was to create awareness about dementia. Dementia is a syndrome consisting of various symptoms including deterioration of memory, thinking, behaviour and the ability to carry out day-to-day activities. It is prevalent in the ageing population along with other non-communicable diseases such as high blood pressure and diabetes.
Women for Dementia Africa, Non-Communicable Diseases Alliance of Kenya (NCDAK) and the County Trackers Elderly Foundation and the County Government of Nairobi collaborated to make this activity a success. Stowelink members actively participated in the screening that took place. They were able to do blood pressure screening and Random Blood Sugar checks on the elderly and other people present.
There were engaging discussions on Dementia, Non-Communicable Diseases and other challenges faced by the elderly. The community was very welcoming and open to learn about Non-communicable diseases. The area Member of County Assembly, commonly referred to as the MCA, grazed the ground with his presence.
It was a successful day which Stowelink prides itself partaking.
