AMF continues to
support the Alzheimer’s Disease Association for another year of the
project−Memories Café. Each 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 while
PWD caregivers, volunteers, staff and café diners interact and socialise with
one another. This social interaction provides a platform for all to mingle and
creates an inclusive environment for PWD and caregivers.
