Alzheimer Association Mauritius

The Alzheimer Association of Mauritius was authoritatively established in May 2005 as a result of the efforts of a group of individuals from various areas of public society, acting on their personal or within organized NGOs, who were all worried with the care of elderly persons in a country with ageing residents.

Our Alzheimer Association takes its ancestries as far back as 1980 when Mrs. Denise Vaulbert de Chantilly, formerly President of our National Senior Citizens Council established contact & join forces with the French-based Federation International des Associations de Personnes Agées (FIAPA). These involved meetings around the world & much of the local enterprises were due to the efforts of the Gerontology Commission of the Lyons Club of Port Louis, Mauritius, which was also managed by Mrs. Vaulbert de Chantilly.

This association culminated by the organisation of an International Meeting of the FIAPA in Mauritius, in 1999.

With the partnership of the Lyons Club & a group of limited volunteers, efforts for encouraging the well-being and care of the ageing led to the formation of an independent group affiliated to the FIAPA (Groupement FIAPA) in 2005.

The local Groupement FIAPA initially focused on efforts to encourage the management of elderly families with special importance on quality control & improvement of care.

Following further funding from the FIAPA, mainly with the regular visit of Dr. Pierre Cateaux, Gerontologist from Réunion, the local Groupement FIAPA gave greater than before attention to Alzheimer’s disease. This ultimately led to the foundation of the local Alzheimer Association which was established in May 2005.
