Mr. Hashim is diagnosed with dementia when he was 66 years old. There is no cure for dementia and it will worsen until he does not recognise his family. *1 in 10 seniors above the age of 60 years old has dementia. Dementia can affect adults of any age, but it is more common in those aged 65 and above. Today, there are 28,000 people aged 60 years and above with dementia. By 2030, there will be over 130,000 persons with dementia. (*Source: Agency for Integrated Care)
AWWA Dementia Day Care Centre provides more individualised and holistic care to slow down the deterioration of Mr. Hashim's physical and mental functions.
