About

Until there is a definitive cure, there will always be CARE needs. Talking and learning more about brain changes and how to communicate with someone affected by a form of dementia and with those that care for them will help decrease stigma and improve quality of life. As people in the Caribbean become more aware of the condition, the demand for better trained care partners is on the rise. Whether you are a family member, friend, nurse or health professional, you can find all your support and training needs here. Reach out to us today and we will help you get started.

Angels of the West Indies (AWI) was founded in 2013 by a nurse volunteering wound care services to a resident in St Lucia affected with late stage Alzheimer. After spending a year with the family and learning that Alzheimer and related dementia's were not spoken about in relation to negative stigma. The family encouraged the nurse to share awareness with the rest of the Island to encourage others to seek assistance in coping skills. As Awareness grew, families began seeking the nurse for private care and with this, began training the hired help and family members. The need for trained care partners grew and AWI was launched as a consultancy and grew as a training and long-term care services for dementia care. Supporters of the Awareness program encouraged an association for support and awareness and launched St. Lucia Alzheimer & Dementia Association (SLADA) in 2016. Both entities supports those living with brain changes and those that care for them.
