Nearly 3 in 4 people with dementia in S’pore feel ashamed, rejected: Study

Nearly three in four people with dementia here experience rejection and loneliness.

And while more than half of the general public feel uncomfortable interacting with them, nearly eight in 10 want to do more to improve the lives of people with dementia.

These were among findings of the first national survey on dementia by the Singapore Management University (SMU) and the Alzheimer’s Disease Association (ADA).
