Care & Share#4 Talking About Caring For Persons Living With Dementia by ClubHEAL (Conducted in Malay)

About this Event

An honest chitchat session with members from ClubHEAL regarding what are the challenges when broaching the subject matter about dementia with families/friends in the Malay community.

How do you perceive people with dementia or their caregiver? Is the stigma a main hurdle in seeking help & support? How do we encourage more conversations among the Malay community about dementia & caregiving?
