As a healthcare worker, I have worked closely with persons with dementia and their caregivers in both acute and community settings.
I strongly believe that we have to continue working on creating public awareness on dementia. It is important to encourage screening for dementia once early signs are detected by caregivers.
Early diagnosis and early intervention will helps to improve the quality of life for both the persons with dementia and their caregivers.
Having a dementia-friendly environment and society in Singapore would be extremely beneficial too.
