Alzheimer’s Disease Association (ADA) was formed in 1990 because of a growing concern for the needs of persons living with dementia and their caregivers.
Through our work, the Association hopes to reduce stigma by increasing awareness and understanding of dementia; enabling and involving persons living with dementia to be integrated and accepted in the community; and leading in the quality of dementia care services for persons living with dementia and their families.
Striving towards a dementia inclusive society through our four strategic service pillars; Centre-Based Care, Caregiver Support, Academy and Community Enabling, the Association aims to advocate and inspire the society to regard and respect persons living with dementia as individuals who can still lead purposeful and meaningful lives.
ADA is registered as a Society [UEN No. S91SS0018J], gazetted as a Charity [Charities No. 0089], and is recognised as an Institution of Public Character [IPC No. 000304]. Outright donations to ADA are eligible for 2.5 times of tax deduction.
The Association is a Social Service Agency and is a member of the National Council of Social Service (NCSS) and Alzheimer’s Disease International. ADA was appointed by NCSS as a “Centre of Specialisation” since 2007.
