For many years now, Nigerian Doctors have sought greener pastures outside the country in droves. This has led to a gap in various aspects of healthcare specialists in the country. Five years ago, Dr. Ebi Ofrey, Dr. Ajibola Meraiyebu, and Bruce Lucas took the uncommon route in Geriatric care in Nigeria, and thus Gerocare was born.

Gerocare is the first and leading Geriatrics care solution in Nigeria. Gerocare operates as a subscription-based service. Children and relatives of Nigerian elderly can buy a subscription of Doctor’s visits for their parents and relatives. A Doctor visits the elderly parents and gives a detailed report to the sponsors per time. It is really a thing of joy to see a Nigerian health tech initiative targeting Nigerian seniors. One great feature is the pricing, it is so affordable yet so rewarding. We encourage Nigerian millennials to tap in as early as possible. Your parents deserve long, fruitful and healthy years in their old age. Gerocare’s activities over the past five years span the 36 states of Nigeria and so not to worry, no matter the village your aged parent lives, Gerocare will get to them.

This August, Gerocare is 5! As the premier Geriatric solution in Nigeria, Gerocare celebrates five outstanding years of elderly care in the country. To mark this milestone, the founders and management of Gerocare have put together a bevy of activities.
