The Alzheimer’s Disease Association (ADA) has collaborated with the Agency for Integrated Care (AIC), with the support of the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources, to support caregivers and persons living with dementia who may unknowingly violate precautionary measures during the Circuit Breaker period.
For instance, persons living with dementia may insist on heading out of home or unable to keep a safe distance outside as they are not aware of these new measures due to their cognitive decline. They are also vulnerable to the potential viral infection if they cannot remember their way home and go missing. This can be potentially stressful for caregivers in caring for their loved ones. This joint initiative hopes to provide some form of support for them during this period.
