How Your Donation Makes a Difference
Provide financial assistance for a caregiver to attend training in dementia care so they are better equipped to provide care for their loved ones.
Help to pay for 12.5kg of rice for lunch for our elderly at a New Horizon daycare centre so elderly can enjoy healthy meals.
Help to pay for refreshments and expenses for elderly in their outings to places of interest so they can still enjoy normalcy in life.
Provide financial assistance for elderly who are unable to afford day care fees so they can still be engaged in the centre while their caregivers work.
Our Campaign Storyends 31 Dec 2021, 11:59 PM
This campaign is to make use of my existing skill set that I can offer to friends in return for a charitable donation.
As an Expat living in Singapore, on a dependent's pass I am not able to work for myself. As a therapist, I would like to occasionally practice my existing skills to keep it current, in doing so I would like to devote the time it takes to a charity and give something back to people in the country I now live in.
I don't know anyone who hasn't had experience of a relative with Alzheimer's or Dementia - it is a devastating condition which hugely impacts families. In my own case my Grandmother took a long time to get diagnosed, which due to lack of understanding caused rifts in our family. I have also previously supported a charity that looks after younger people (young onset dementia) with this condition - can you imagine the impact on your life and those around you if you develop Alzheimer's or Dementia in your early 40's.... More research and better methods of treating people need to be developed. That is why I have chosen to support this charity.
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.
