The Alzheimer’s Disease Association (ADA) is a social service agency and is made up of caregivers, professionals and all who are interested in dementia. ADA provides daycare for people with dementia, as well as services such as counselling, support groups, referrals and public education talks. The Association also conducts training and workshops for caregivers.
The #DespiteDementia campaign is all about changing perceptions and fighting dementia stigma. It’s about removing the labels people place on those with dementia – dispelling the notion that their condition should define them – and seeing the person underneath who yearns to live their life with dignity and pride just like any of us.
In March 2020, the International Conference of Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI) will be returning to Singapore after a 10-year hiatus. Jointly organised with ADA, ADI’s flagship conference is expected to attract more than 1,500 delegates from around the world and it will be held from 19 to 21 March at the Singapore Expo.
Eldercare Exhibition & Conference Asia (ELDEX) is a trade and consumer exhibition that creates an effective marketplace for international silver economy suppliers to meet and engage with Asia Pacific trade visitors and end-users. It will be held in Singapore from 8 to 10 November.
World Alzheimer's Month (WAM) is the international campaign by Alzheimer's Disease International (ADI) held every September to raise awareness and challenge the stigma that surrounds dementia. Within World Alzheimer’s Month falls World Alzheimer’s Day, designated by the global community as the day we come together to celebrate our persons with dementia and their loving families.
