Post Diagnostic Support

Post Diagnostic Support Programme (PDS) aims to proactively reach out and support newly diagnosed persons with dementia and their caregivers for a period of one year upon diagnosis.

 

Through PDS, we hope to support families in the following areas:

  • Enhance persons with dementia and their caregivers’ understanding towards Dementia

  • Develop and equip families with more effective coping strategies

  • Introduce and link families up with the relevant resources/services

  • Building a community of support for caregivers

  • Provision of psycho-emotional support

  • Customisation of Individualised Care Plans (ICP)

The pilot programme was launched in September 2020, in support of Lien Foundation. Only referrals from selected hospitals would be accepted into the programme. For more information, download the brochure here or contact our Dementia Helpline at 6377 0700.
