Voice of Dementia Online

MARCH 2019

March brings to a close the flurry of festivities; from Christmas to the New Year, and even the Lunar New Year for many of us. As we settle back into our routine, there’s no better time to examine our caregiving and see how we can help to contribute to a more dementia-friendly community.

Over the last year, we’ve heard from dementia advocates like Kate Swaffer, Dennis Frost, and George Chong. Their stories may differ, but they echo similar themes – the courage to keep facing forward instead of waiting for the end, and working to dispel the stigma with regards to dementia.

These voices are proof that dementia does not have to mean the end. With support from their loved ones and the community, people with dementia can lead fulfilling lives. Working towards a dementia-friendly community is something that starts with us. By having conversations with your friends and family and spreading awareness, we’ll be helping others to understand dementia better. It’s all part of the first steps towards a dementia-friendly and inclusive Singapore. How are you helping to spread awareness about dementia?

Help us to share the word by sending this to anyone you know who would be interested in reading this e-newsletter. They can also subscribe to receive future issues.

Celebrating Our Unsung Heroes

On 5 Jan 2019, close to 150 caregivers of persons with dementia attended ADA’s Caregiver’s Appreciation Gala Luncheon 2019. Organised to show appreciation to caregivers for their dedication and hard work in looking after their loved ones with dementia, the annual event was jointly organised by ADA and students from the National University of Singapore (NUS) Faculty of Law, and was held at the Equarius Hotel, Resorts World Sentosa.

From 9 to 24 March, ADA and Forget Us Not will hold an “Understanding Dementia” exhibition at Punggol MRT, along the Pasar Malam! We will be there on weekends to invite you to understand more on this condition. You can also stand to win prizes by answering a quiz or simply by taking a selfie with our exhibits. See you soon!

Let’s Recycle and Create Together!

ADA recently embarked on the Recycled Arts Programme for persons with cognitive impairment or dementia. It is a pilot programme that aims to provide purposeful engagement and improve their overall well-being. READ MORE HERE.
