Mr Paul Teo and his family were initially overwhelmed when they received a confirmed diagnosis from the doctor that his mother, Madam Tan Yew Hwee, has dementia.

"Learn to seek help from associations such ADA who can support not only your loved ones with dementia, but also you as the caregiver," revealed Paul.

Madam Tan was referred to ADA and became a client at NHC (Toa Payoh), which she enjoys attending. Paul sang his praises for the care staff, saying, "The professional care staff take on the person-centred approach and really observe what my mum enjoys. For example, she enjoys a particular song and they often use that song to engage with her. Over time, they also realised that she has a strong maternal instinct, and so they often play dolls with her."

#DespiteDementia, Paul's family became even more united and with ADA's guidance, his family can ensure that Madam Tan lives a high quality of life.

Despite the current elevated COVID-19 situation in Singapore, ADA has decided to keep all Centre facilities open and operating as per usual to provide relief and support for caregivers during this difficult period. Our devoted team of therapists, social workers and nurses will allow caregivers to pursue their livelihoods while being assured that their loved ones are well cared for.

Your contribution today will help to sustain these essential programmes and services and also show appreciation to these group of unsung heroes who continue to fight on despite touch crises.

About the Charity

Alzheimer's Disease Association (ADA) was formed in 1990 as a result of a growing concern for the needs of persons with dementia, their families and caregivers. Through our work, the Association hopes to reduce stigma by increasing awareness and understanding of dementia, enabling and involving persons with dementia to be integrated and accepted in the community and leading in the quality of dementia care services which support persons with dementia and their families.

As a non-profit organisation, ADA operates with limited resources. We cannot battle dementia alone. Here's how you can share in our mission and make a difference: Donate today! Proceeds will be used to help fund our programmes and services that will benefit our beneficiaries and their families.


Fundraising can help to raise more and change more lives.
