Free Admission
Lend a helping hand, be a dementia friend! Join us to learn about dementia and how you can play your part to build a dementia-friendly Singapore. Don't miss the special weekend exhibition by four students from the Nanyang Technological University’s (NTU) Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information happening from 19 to 21 January 2024 at Reunion.
Explore about dementia through this fun, interactive and educational exhibition that has been specially curated for youths. With approximately 152,000 people in Singapore expected to be living with dementia by 2030, dementia will not just impact them - it will have an impact on all of us. It is important for us to learn how each of us can play a part in building a caring and inclusive society.

This exhibition is organised by the Agency for Integrated Care, with the National Museum of Singapore as a venue supporter.

Visitors are invited to journey alongside “Giffy” the giraffe, our Dementia-Friendly Singapore ambassador, as they discover about dementia in Singapore through the five themes: Facing Dementia; Understanding Dementia; Living with Dementia; Caring for Dementia; and Supporting Dementia.
