Alzheimer’s Disease Association
- Founded in 1990 as a result of increasing concerns for the needs of dementia patients and their families, Alzheimer’s Disease Association (ADA) is a voluntary welfare organization specially dedicated to people with dementia as well as their caregivers. Made up of caregivers, professionals and all others who are interested in dementia, ADA seeks to work towards a more dementia inclusive society. The association aims to provide quality care and support for people with dementia and their caregivers, at the same time promoting research, education and training for dementia intervention and prevention.
- Some services ADA provides include day care for people with dementia at their 4 New Horizon Centres as well as transportation services to the day care centres. Through their Caregiver Support Centres, ADA provides various support services for family caregivers via platforms like dementia helpline and counseling, resource library, Person-Centred Home-Based Intervention, Safe Return Card, Eldersit Respite Services and Memories Café, which is a 2-hour outing session for dementia patients and their caregivers to meet similar people in a fun, accepting environment and to provide a refreshing environment for their caregivers.
