Talk on Symptoms and Treatment of Dementia by Dr Felicia Law, consultant in the Dept of Geriatric Medicine Tan Tock Seng Hospital

About this event

Forgetfulness is common in older people and is not always a cause for concern.

Early intervention can help to identify patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI), which has been shown to have an annual conversion rate of 10 to 15% to dementia.

More serious and progressive forgetfulness may be caused by a disease of the brain, such as dementia. The more common causes of dementia are Alzheimer's Disease and vascular dementia. Although not reversible, early detection will enable treatment to be started, and this can help improve the patient's symptoms and quality of life as well as reduce the stress on those providing care for the patients.

Dr Felicia Law is a consultant in the Department of Geriatric Medicine currently working at Tan Tock Seng Hospital. Her subspecialty area of interest is in cognition and memory disorders. She journeys with older persons with dementia and their caregivers as part of her daily work, delivering comprehensive person-centered care.

This is part of Saturday Health Talks LIVE organised by Brahm Centre where healthcare professionals and qualified speakers from various fields are invited to conduct free talks followed by Q&A.
