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, members of the public 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
