Singapore’s population is ageing rapidly. Currently, one in 10 people aged 60 and above may have dementia. By 2030, there are an estimated 150,000 people in Singapore who may live with the condition.

They face daily challenges grappling with the cognitive decline brought about by the condition. As a community, how can we best help them live well with dementia and age in place meaningfully and happily?
