Make Their Silver Years Truly Golden Fund
Our silver years should be our golden years but for many of the elderly among us, their golden years are a struggle. They face many challenges; Dementia in particular, stands out.
At The Majurity Trust, we believe these are not burdens to be borne by a few. We should be engaging the community to address what are ultimately our collective concerns.
The elderly face many challenges, but dementia stands out. Silver Is Gold is our fund to help the elderly in Singapore thrive.
The Cost of Dementia
The number of people living with dementia will increase significantly.
Currently, it is estimated that 86,000 elderly live with dementia. This will exceed 100,000 before the year 2030.
A 2019 national survey on dementia (Singapore’s first) revealed that 7 in 10 people with dementia feel rejection and loneliness.
The burden on families and caregivers is immense.
