Voice of Dementia Online (March 2020)

ADA Logo

MARCH 2020

It’s been a busy start to the year, and amidst the hustle and bustle, we’ve had to practice some extra care due to the changing COVID-19 situation in Singapore.

But life goes on, and while programme schedules might have changed, our work remains unchanged—to help those living with dementia to live dignified and fulfilling lives.

We all have a part to play to work towards a dementia-friendly Singapore. Besides ADA’s efforts to educate the public through a combination of communication campaigns and outreach programmes, every little effort to advocate for those living with dementia goes a long way. By sharing your stories on how you and your loved ones live life to the full #DespiteDementia, you too can chip away at the dementia stigma.

Send this e-newsletter to anyone whom you think may benefit and help them get started on their journey to learn more about dementia. They can also subscribe to receive future issues.

As part of our efforts to build an inclusive dementia-friendly Kebun Baru, check out the first of four videos which feature candid conversations between seniors with dementia and children! We hope that in addition to reducing negative stereotypes of dementia, the videos will also spur you to have meaningful dialogues with those living with dementia.
