Karen - Dementia South Africa

Patient Leader


Health Activist Hero

Karen Borochowitz founded Dementia South Africa 7 years ago and has volunteered her time all-day, every-day since, to improve the lives of all affected by dementia. She has relentlessly pursued the law and the government to recognise the disease and continues daily in her quest to influence decision makers to include dementia as a non-communicative disease. Furthermore, in a country with little prevalence information, she is spearheading ground-breaking research in very rural commmunities to establish prevalence figures and awareness. Karen is a true activist and philanthropist carrying out her tasks in a very humble manner.  — Sue
