“Experiencing dementia caregiving through interacting with and taking care of a friend’s father who has dementia opened up my perspective about caregivers’ struggles and stresses. I hope there can be greater awareness for the community to become Dementia Friends to create a culture in which persons living with dementia and caregivers are empowered, supported, and included in society. As caregivers struggle to look for domestic helpers who are trained in dementia care, I hope that government agencies could explore including dementia care as one of the pre-requisites in their training.”
