1 in 10 above 60 years old has dementia in Singapore
Dementia is not a part of normal ageing.
It is a medical condition that causes brain cells to die at a faster rate than normal. The resulting progressive cognitive decline leads to increasing difficulties in coping with everyday activities. A common symptom is poor short-term memory. On average, a person with dementia lives four to eight years after diagnosis, but can live as long as 20 years.
Dementia is not just forgetfulness
The effects of dementia go beyond affecting the ability to remember things, think clearly, communicate with others, and to care for ourselves. Mood swings and even changes to your loved one’s personality and behavior are also part of it. When caring for a person with dementia, irregular behaviours and communication difficulties can make caregiving challenging.
Dementia care across the stages
The symptoms of dementia progress over time and changes across the stages. During this period, dementia can be separated into three categories: mild , moderate and advanced. It may be difficult to place a person with dementia in a specific stage as stages may overlap.
These stages help to provide some insight on the symptoms, how the abilities of our loved one change and possible care support needed.
