Mr. Jason Foo, Chief Executive Officer of the Alzheimer’s Disease Association (ADA), shared with members of the committee on the various aspects of dealing with people diagnosed with dementia both socially as well as in the workplace. He highlighted the lack of awareness amongst the general public and the increasing cases of people suffering from dementia in Singapore. Members engaged in a meaningful discussion after the sharing session and also resulted in some companies considering CSR initiatives with the ADA. The committee then engaged in further discussions on initiatives for the rest of 2019.
