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:

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 organise 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.
A Traditional Chinese Medicine Physician from Raffles Chinese Medicine started volunteering on 29 June 2017 to visit Zion Home twice a month to provide medical consultation and acupuncture sessions for the elderly residents.
