In 2030, there could be 103,000 people in Singapore living with dementia. That’s more than double the number today. Plenty of plans are in motion to cope with this increase, and one of them is a four-storey home specifically designed to help elderly who have been diagnosed with dementia. The S$15-million project, an extension of Salvation Army’s Peacehaven Nursing Home, is slated to open in 2016. The home features the use of smart technology such as wearable tracking devices. It’s aim? To allow its residents to wander about freely, to experience some autonomy, so that they feel happier and more fulfilled. For those who are caring for elderly with dementia, this is yet another option to help ease the heavy load.
