The Atria Community Corner was launched in September 2017 in conjunction with World Alzheimer’s Month. It is a joint community initiative of the Atria Shopping Gallery (Atria) under its CSR programme and the Alzheimer’s Disease Foundation Malaysia (ADFM).

With this collaboration, Atria is aspiring to be the first dementia-friendly community mall in Malaysia aimed at:
• raising greater awareness of Alzheimer’s Disease and other dementia; and
• providing information and support to the neighbourhood communities around Damansara Jaya and its vicinity.

Located at Lot T03 on the Third Floor (two doors from Daiso), the Atria Community Corner is open daily from 11am to 7pm. All health, nutrition & wellbeing talks, activities and information leaflets provided at the Atria Community Corner are free.

Today, people are living longer with expectations of a higher quality of life, lower morbidity and mobility. Medical advances are increasingly making longer healthy life-spans possible. If the elderly is in good health and living independently, he/she will enjoy ageing actively. However, a time will come when the effects of advance ageing become evident and long-term care may be required. Caring for a dependent person is a challenging responsibility. Joyce will share her experience in this session.
