In 2012, about 28,000 people in Singapore aged 60 and older had dementia. The number is expected to soar to 130,000 by 2030. Dementia affects 1 in 10 people aged 60 and older. As our population ages quickly, dementia is an issue we cannot ignore.
A Dementia-Friendly Singapore encourages persons living with dementia to continue living in their own homes and go about their usual routines in the community. This involves the community's members – neighbours, shopkeepers, coffee-shop drink sellers, bank tellers – who can understand and help them.
