Our Campaign Story

ends 10 Oct 2020, 11:59 PM

My mum has been a strong pillar of support for my 84 year old dad, who has been living with dementia for the past four years. Like many others out there, she is an elderly caregiver and it is not easy to look after a loved one with dementia. This September, which is both World Alzheimer's Month and my birthday month, please consider donating to a cause that is close to my heart and helping me to raise greater awareness about the condition. I wish that my mum and dad, persons living with dementia and their caregivers can be more supported in their journey to continue leading meaningful lives.

About Campaign

Held every September and commemorated all over the world, World Alzheimer's Month (WAM) is a month-long calendar of events and activities dedicated to raising awareness and challenging the stigma of dementia.

We invite you to support ADA's WAM2020 activities by making a donation to help ADA reduce the stigma of dementia and EMPOWER persons with dementia to live their lives in dignity and the way they want #despitedementia.

Help us continue to support and empower persons with dementia like Anjang (see video in the rotating banner above) through our programmes like Memories Cafe and Voices for Hope.

All donations will go towards immediate resources, care and support to persons with dementia and their caregivers through our various programmes and services, providing financial aid to beneficiaries who are unable to keep up with the heavy cost of caregiving. For more information about our programmes and services, please visit https://alz.org.sg.

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.
