a great place to grow older
for the better
The concept to start Gideons’ home for the elderly was idealized by Dr. Joel Muthuri and his wife Makena in memory of their late fathers who were both named Gideon, hence the Gideons’ Memorial Home. The home is a comfort residency that provides personalized care for the elderly. We noticed a gap in the availability of comfortable facilities in Kenya where families could commit their loved ones either for a short or long term care. This has become a necessity especially at this time in our country when immediate relatives are not readily available because of their busy work schedules.
We therefore decided to provide a homely solution where families would feel secure and confident to entrust their loved ones to us. We are also very cognizant of the needs of the elderly which include loneliness needing company in a place that shows them love in all aspects of their lives and this is Gideons’ care centre’s commitment to the elderly. We are opening our doors to admit clients starting March 2019.
To be the lead center of excellence for the care of the elderly in East Africa.
To provide quality care for the elderly in a homely and amiable environment.
