Around one in 10 people aged 60 and above in Singapore suffers from dementia. With Singapore’s increasing life expectancy and rapidly ageing population, the number of persons living with dementia is expected to continue to rise.

How can churches and Christians come in to support persons with dementia?

This year’s symposium features two distinct tracks: Building a Dementia-Friendly Faith Community and Healing & Beyond: A Holistic Approach to Managing Wounds. Both tracks will run concurrently.

Track 1: Building a Dementia-Friendly Faith Community

Discover effective approaches to engage people with dementia, encourage faith experiences, and provide compassionate care. Gain insights from personal journeys and engage in workshop conversations to create a supportive community for all.
