With an elderly population and an increasing load on an already clichéd national health service, care for the elderly is a growing concern in Kenya. Families the length and breadth of the country are facing the difficulty of what to do for their loved ones as they reach an age where some form of care is mandatory. It is a complex time for all concerned. An elderly person will struggle with the steady deterioration of their body and mind, rendering them vulnerable to not only physical but also mental ailment and conditions, such as depression and restlessness. Being unable to provide the support they may wish to can be a heartbreaking time for family members.
