Increased aid to tackle dementia, mental health issues

Good to know that there is increased support for patients with dementia and mental health in the community. The condition affects about 40,000 people in Singapore today, but this number is expected to double by 2030 as the population ages.

Indeed, a good number of patients seen on house calls have dementia and mental health issues. These are often challenging and difficult to manage.
