Dementia is Everybody's Business
Today, 1 in 10 Singaporeans aged 60 and above has dementia. By 2030, the number of people with dementia is projected to exceed 100,000.
Caring for people with dementia may be extremely stressful, especially as dementia robs them of their memory, thinking skills, and even change their personalities. If left unchecked, the physical, emotional and mental exhaustion can lead to caregiver burnout.
Based on positive feedback from formal and informal caregivers, ACE Seniors is proud to collaborate with The Salvation Army Peacehaven Nursing Home in our latest edition of Dementia is Everybody's Business. Our signature seminar brings together caregivers from all walks of life to learn from industry leaders, tour a leading dementia-friendly eldercare facility, and the opportunity to bring concepts to life through the 'Hackathon'. Since 2021 January, we had a total of 90 participants whereby 98% of participants will recommend the seminar.
About the Dementia ‘Hackathon’
Hear from our industry leaders to develop an updated understanding of the pandemic’s impact on dementia care, and what it means for residential care, home-based care, day activity centres and as a community enabler.
Take a guided tour of Peacehaven Nursing Home’s Jade Circle, a four-storey, purpose-built, eldercare facility that raises the standards of dementia care through new care models with a focus on autonomy, choices and dignity.
Reference your insights and field experience garnered earlier, and work in teams to develop dementia-friendly environments and practices using the Hack Care design toolkit by the Lien Foundation, offering solutions and principles that were practicable, sparking creative ways tackling the challenge of making the environment more dementia-friend
