Saudi Alzheimer Disease Association

Saudi Alzheimer  Disease Association

The idea of establishing the association emerged from a group of women whose fathers and mothers were afflicted with Alzheimer’s disease, and their journey began in search of those interested in this aspect. Forty-five of the sons and daughters of this country took the initiative to establish the Saudi Charitable Society for Alzheimer’s Disease, and the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development approved its establishment

Establishment of the association

Given the nature of our interconnected society, which is keen to present its members in the best way, and many people conceal some of the diseases that afflict their relatives, especially if it affects their behavior or judgment on matters, the establishment of the association came to break the barrier of silence and shame, and to illuminate the spaces surrounding the disease to create public awareness that serves patients and their families. It addresses decision-makers to understand the dimensions of the disease, its impact, and the costs of its treatment, leading to providing care and attention to patients and those interested in their affairs. Therefore, the beginnings and founding of the association were in 1430 AH – 2009 AD
