AMF Volunteer Signup

2018 - 2019

AMF continues to support Alzheimer’s Disease Association for another year of their 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 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 and their caregivers.
  • Raising public awareness about dementia.
  • Dampening the social stigma and stereotypes that the public may attach to PWD.

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.  

Raffles Chinese Medicine TCM Physician Dr Tan Weii Zhu has been visiting Zion Home since 29 June 2017 to provide free TCM consultations as well as acupuncture treatments which the elderly residents look forward to with much enthusiasm once a month!

PCF Sparkle Care at Simei and Yew Tee provide much needed day care and rehab facilities to the elderly and people with dementia in the heartlands. We have been delighted to have assisted them in providing ad hoc rehab assessments of their clients since May 2016. 

Dr Farhan who is our Consultant Geriatrician has also been providing pro bono dementia examinations and initial diagnosis for clients with suspected early signs of forgetfulness.

A doctor from Raffles Hospital volunteered to provide free consultations for a needy elderly Singaporean patient while AMF paid for his medication bill.
AMF adopted “Raffles Gives Back Project” by Raffles Hospital through which their staff fundraise and/or donate to Zion Home For The Aged and Bethesda Care and Counselling Services Centre as the selected beneficiaries.
AMF support this project proposed by Ms Bibi Chia, Dietician from RMG. Objective of this project is to support and provide nutrition education to the low-income and vulnerable families in community and to educate on healthy nutrition and food preparation methods. AMF budgeted $200 to cover the food ingredients and transportation cost incurred by the dietetic team for this project for 3 sessions.

AMF supported Project SilverCare (PSC) Project. PSC conducts annual free health screening event jointly organised by NUS students from the Medicine, Nursing and Pharmacy faculties. 

This year, PSC provided free community health assessment & screening to about 55 residents at Bt. Batok rental housing at Block 109 and 210A. These assessments were done at the house of the residents.

Project Kidney was initiated by a team of eight secondary 2 students from RGS trying to combat the prevalence of chronic kidney disease among elderly citizens by educating & informing them on the necessity of health screenings and maintaining the conditions of those who are currently suffering from Chronic Kidney Disease.

AMF sponsored 2 health screenings held at Tembusu SAC & SilverAce SAC.
