ABOUT THE CHARITY

The GIVEN Company supports Singapore-based Alzheimer's Disease Association (ADA) (UEN: S91SS0018J), a registered charity with IPC status (Institution of Public Character).

ADA runs a broad range of services for persons with dementia, such as dementia day-care centres, home based respite and psycho-social support programmes and three-hour day-care sessions. For caregivers of persons with dementia, they provide support groups, a Helpline, counselling, case management, information and referral services. ADA also provides training in dementia care to family caregivers, foreign domestic workers, healthcare professionals and institutions. ADA is active in public education and engagement to raise awareness of dementia and to do their part in advocating for a dementia-friendly community.
