The Dementia-Friendly Singapore (DFSG) initiative aims to build a more caring and inclusive society for persons living with dementia and their caregivers. These Dementia-Friendly Communities (DFC) are in Yishun, Hong Kah North, Macpherson, Queenstown, Bedok, Fengshan, Bukit Batok East, Woodlands and more.
As part of the DFSG initiative, individuals can sign up as a Dementia Friend to join the initiative in building a Dementia-Friendly Singapore by downloading the Dementia Friends Mobile App. Dementia Friends will learn about dementia and how to communicate with persons living with dementia. Through this, they can lend a helping hand and keep a lookout for persons living with dementia who may need support.
On the Dementia Friends Mobile App, users can:
• Get info, tips and resources on dementia
• Post cases of missing loved ones and help keep a lookout
• Receive updates on events and training
