"Dementia prevention in the community, by the community, for the community."
Today, one in 10 seniors who are aged 60 and above in Singapore has dementia. With increased life expectancy and a rapidly ageing population, dementia cases are expected to triple by 2030. It is therefore important to raise awareness of dementia and focus efforts on prevention.
Age Well Everyday (AWE) is a structured community programme – encompassing Health Education, Exercise, Mindfulness Practice, Art & Music Reminiscence, and Horticultural Therapy – which can be delivered by volunteers and is designed to delay cognitive deterioration, reduce anxiety and depression, and increase socialisation, thereby delaying the onset of dementia and improving the quality of life of seniors.
At various community centres across Singapore, volunteers conduct the AWE programme, covering topics on health education, mindfulness practice and physical exercise, as well as creative activities like horticultural therapy, art therapy and music reminiscence therapy.
