2021 has started as quickly as 2020 had ended. In just the blink of an eye, this month marks more than one year of life with COVID-19, and April marks the one-year anniversary of Singapore’s Circuit Breaker. Safe-distancing, contact tracing, masking, and now, vaccinations, are steps we have taken as a community to curb the spread of the virus.
At ADA, we continue to help those living with dementia to live dignified and fulfilling lives amidst the pandemic. We also continue to support caregivers in their journey to love and engage #despitedementia. Our programmes, many of which have gone online, help alleviate the stress that caregivers face every day.
As ADA enters the next financial year in April 2021, we are grateful for your support, be it in donations, volunteering, or just raising awareness for the dementia cause. To stay updated with us and our upcoming endeavours, do send this newsletter to your friends and family, and subscribe!
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the Voices for Hope programme continues to coach persons with dementia and care partners, giving them a boost in their confidence as they actively contribute to the community through their stories and sentiments.READ MORE.
Despite the gloom of the pandemic still shrouding the world in 2021, generous individuals and companies are doing their utmost to spread the spirit of social good and cheer to the dementia community. READ MORE.

Just months after her husband was diagnosed with fourth-stage cancer, Katherine and her family were crushed to learn about her dementia diagnosis. A few years later, her husband passed away and the family had to grapple with grief and loss for a long time. For daughters Belinda and Babara, choosing to overcome the blows, pick up the pieces, and dedicate their lives to care for their mother was an easy decision. Dubbed Katherine’s “angels” on Earth, Belinda and Babara’s caregiving goal is to simply bring joy to mother’s life in all they do. Together, they continue to live life to the fullest while tackling the challenges of dementia head-on. Such is The Power of Love. SEE MORE VIDEOS
