“As a caregiver, it is very tough and emotionally draining to look after a dementia patient. Because of my love for my father, and also my prayer to my God to give me grace, strength, understanding, and patience to continue as a caregiver, I am able to care for him until today, even as I witness his memory loss and behaviour changes. I’ve also resigned from my job to spend quality time with him and to have time to rest. As a caregiver, we must remember to take a day out to refresh ourselves so that we have the strength to continue to take care of our loved ones.”

– Mdm Betty Kim Tan, caregiver for her father
