About US

AME was founded by Ms Amy Chua, a retired librarian, at the age of 68.  She has seen too many seniors living and feeling lost after their retirement that prompted her to establish AME.  With the greying population on the rise, she thought she could do something to revitalise the lives of seniors and encourage them to lead a better life – a life of choice, complete with happiness, passion and fulfilment! At AME, we share her philosophy and experience in promoting graceful and active ageing coupled with the prospect of starting a second career.
