AMF continues to support Alzheimer’s Disease Association for another year of their project−Memories
session lasts for two hours. During the first hour, people with dementia (PWD)
will engage in performing arts activities with their caregivers such as
singing, quartet performances, puppetry, story-telling and drama activities. In
the later part of the session, refreshments are served apart from the social
interactions with PWD, caregivers, volunteers, staff and café diners. This
social interaction provides a platform for all to mingle and create an
inclusive environment for PWD and caregivers.
The Memories Café programme
satisfies three key objectives:
