Your Mental Wellbeing, Understanding Dementia
Thursday, 15 April

An estimated 36 million people worldwide are diagnosed with dementia, two-thirds of whom live in developing countries. This number is estimated to increase to 115 million people by 2050. In Singapore, 45,000 people were diagnosed with dementia in 2015, with the number expected to increase to 103,000 by 2030. If you consider undiagnosed cases, the numbers will be much higher.

Dementia is an illness that causes progressive loss in cognitive functions due to damage or disease in the brain. It is not part of a normal ageing process. Once regarded as a condition affecting mostly those aged over 65, a growing number of younger people have been diagnosed with dementia in recent years.
