The Hong Kong Alzheimer’s Disease Association (HKADA) was established in 1995, is a non-profit-making, self-financed charitable organization without Government subvention. We are the only member of the Alzheimer’s Disease International and the first organization specialized in providing services to people living with dementia and their families in Hong Kong.
HKADA provides professional and multi-dimensional non-medical treatments and services to people with dementia and their family caregivers. At the same time, we provide education on brain health and knowledge of the disease to the general public; as well as training to medical practitioners, professionals and caregivers, to enhance their early detection of the disease and to enhance their knowledge and skills in caring for people living with dementia.
In the recent years, taking reference of the Confucian’s “Rites, Music, Archery, Charioteering, Literacy and Numeracy”, a modern, multi-intellectual cognitive simulating model of “6 Arts®” was designed. Such has been put to practice in our cognitive training and activities, and further extended to other elderly service units.
