Voice of Dementia Online (December 2020)

ADA Logo

DECEMBER 2020

What a year it has been! 2020 has seen the world in unprecedented times. But in spite of the COVID-19 health crisis, ADA has forged on to help our dementia community thrive. We’re so happy to have achieved so much with your support.

In the last quarter, we ran a fully virtual World Alzheimer’s Month for the first time. Indeed, it was a foretaste of more initiatives we’re taking online and offline, with three new programmes having been launched since, including the Caregiver Support Network (CSN) and the Inclusive Dementia-Friendly Communities (iDFC) webinar series.

There is a lot more in store for us in 2021. And if you’d like to help someone you know kick-start their journey to learn more about dementia, forward this email or help them subscribe to receive future issues of our e-newsletter.
