Originated in Europe, the Memories Café sessions are now running in many countries around the world today. This concept was remodelled after the Alzheimer’s Café Programme.


Each café 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, drumming and dance movement 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:

• Serving as a casual social interaction platform for PWD as well as their caregivers.
• Raising public awareness of dementia.
• Dampening the social stigma and stereotypes that the public may attach to PWD. 

We are looking for volunteers who can spend two hours to interact with PWD, caregivers and other volunteers on a Saturday morning/afternoon on a monthly basis.  If you’re interested, please indicate your interest with us at “Be Our Volunteer” or contact Adelene Lee at 6311 2111 for more information.

Zion Home For The Aged is a sheltered home for aged females. It was established in 1979 by Zion Presbyterian Church. Zion Home is a registered society and also a charity registered under the Charities Act of 1982.  AMF adopted Zion Home in June 2015. We sponsor and organize volunteer doctors to visit the residents of this home once a month to provide them with free medical consultations and advice. AMF sponsors the cost of outpatient medication, lab tests and x-rays requested by the doctor. Volunteer doctors also refer the residents to consult specialist doctors if required.
