Dear A.S.S. Editor
In a reminder that Singapore is now in an period of aging population, with many older people around than ever before, a first 24/7 dementia go to point was officially launched yesterday.
It is located at the Sree Narayana Mission Nursing Home in Yishun, which makes it Singapore’s first such go to point nursing facility. These points, of which there are 58 others around the island, although they are not 24/7, serve as places where lost and wandering people with dementia can be brought to by members of the public.
These places also serve as a community hub for people who are interested to find out more about caring for people with dementia.
