4get-me-not.org is a non-profit organization committed to fulfil a social mission by raising awareness on Alzheimer's disease in the UAE.
We aim to be the main information resource of every household in Dubai, United Arab Emirates and the Middle East who needs Alzheimer’s-related help.
Dementia Friends is a global movement started by Alzheimer's Society UK and mentors organizations like 4get-me-not Alzheimer's to create more dementia-friendly communities. This is an informative session with an objective of changing the way people think, talk and act about dementia.
Starting January 2018 onwards, 4get-me-not Alzheimer's is set to launch Dementia Friends in various parts of the Emirates in collaboration with pre-med students of Dubai Medical College and RAK Medical Health and Science University.
