Invitation to Visit the Alzheimer Disease Foundation Malaysia (ADFM)
On 4th September 2014, BeCause members attended ADFM’s Open Day upon an invitation by President Dato Jeffery Ng. It was a busy day at the day care centre. About 100 guests and sponsors turned up. The centre provides activities and social interaction for those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. Our members were touched by them as they and their families turned up to take part in the day’s singing event. What is something we take for granted requires monumental effort by those who have lost their memory and power of recall.The centre also have programs conducted by qualified staff aimed at improving memory or to prevent it from worsening.
ADFM is now embarking on a fund raising drive to build a bigger day care centre in old town PJ Section One. The existing centre in Section 22 ,PJ will be converted into a home for those whose families cannot look after them.
Before leaving, BeCause members did their part by donating some money towards ADFM’s new centre plans.
