Dementia Singapore was formed in 1990 as the ‘Alzheimer’s Disease Association’ to better serve Singapore’s growing dementia community, increase awareness about dementia, and reduce the stigma surrounding the condition.
As Singapore’s leading Social Service Agency (SSA) in specialised dementia care, Dementia Singapore aims to advocate for the needs of people living with dementia and their families; empower the community through capability-building, knowledge and consultancy; and deliver quality, person-centred care innovations.
Dementia Singapore is registered as a Company Limited by Guarantee (UEN No. 202111519K), listed as a Charity and is recognised as an Institution of a Public Character (IPC).
Dementia Singapore is a member of the National Council of Social Service (NCSS) and Alzheimer’s Disease International. We have been appointed by NCSS as a “Centre of Specialisation” since 2007, and are one of eight Learning Institutes under the Agency for Integrated Care Learning Network.

The Dementia Singapore logo consists of two distinct colours:
Purple is the universal colour that represents Alzheimer’s disease and dementia around the world. Many associations and organisations dealing with dementia have used the colour to show that it is a pervasive, spectrum disorder.
Yellow represents optimism and positivity, providing an enlightened contrast to the stigma and negativity often associated with the condition.
This brain icon points to how dementia is ultimately a condition of the brain, which impairs one’s ability to remember, think, or make decisions that interfere with doing everyday activities.
The logo also illustrates how Dementia Singapore will collaborate with authorities, organisations, and those impacted by dementia to strengthen the overall effectiveness of the dementia care ecosystem.
