Journey with Arts & Dementia (JADe) Programme

Supported by the Chua Foundation, ADA is excited to introduce ‘Journey with Arts & Dementia’ or ‘JADe’ for short. The JADe programme is an extended initiative from our current Arts & Dementia programme which is catered to persons with dementia enrolled in our daycare centres.

As the prevalence of dementia increase, to maintain the quality of life for persons with dementia and their families, non-pharmacological treatments and other reminiscence engagement approaches are essential. With JADe, we hope to start empowering trained art practitioners, volunteers and direct care staff with an ultimate aim to reach out and benefit more persons with dementia and their families.

SIGN UP FOR JADe!
If you are keen to participate in JADe, it is mandatory to complete Part 2 of the training. Do note that subsidies are available and prices indicated are inclusive of GST. Those who participate will also receive a complimentary reminiscence start-up kit (See main photo).
