Community Living Resource for a Dementia-Inclusive Singapore (Ang Mo Kio Edition)

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.

Many of the people living with dementia are our loved ones, family, colleagues, friends, and neighbours. 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?

This booklet is thoughtfully put together by the Ang Mo Kio Partners’ Network – comprising AMKFSC Community Services, AWWA, Dementia Singapore, Tan Tock Seng Hospital, and TOUCH Community Services. It acts as a localised resource for Ang Mo Kio residents to live well in the community despite dementia.
