Channel NewsAsia: Forget me not 

A documentary on dementia by @Justinbratton6 featuring Alzheimers Disease Association in Singapore, touching on dementia environmental design.

The information provided by Justin Bratton is very informative especially on how Japan is coping with providing care for living with dementia and the programs that they have formulated such as dementia friendly caravan, dementia friendly malls, banks etc.

I love the intergenerational program with the older adults with dementia and the pre-school kids. It’s so lovely to see that sense of connection and a program that breaks the boundaries and stigma of dementia.


 

Untitled.png1 in 10 Singaporeans over 60 have dementia. This number is set to rise quickly. Are we prepared for the onslaught? Justin Bratton experiences what life is like when warped by dementia. He heads to Japan to find out how the entire country is being mobilized to create a dementia friendly nation.
