We are a team of Post Diagnostic Support caseworkers, coming together to walk and to raise funds for our beneficiaries and clients! The journey upon the dementia diagnosis is often arduous for both our clients and caregivers. One step at a time, they overcome multiple challenges and amidst difficult times, they emerge even stronger. It's not easy to be in their shoes. Therefore, our team - Stephen Chan, Eileen Lee, Fong May Yoke, Tricia Tan, Bridget Goh and Joyce Teoh pledge to walk with them and everyone. In doing so, we walk beside those who have dementia, are caring for those with dementia and those who have inspired us everyday with their resilience. Join us in raising awareness during the World Alzheimer's Month 2020!
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.
