EPISODE # 1: DO I HAVE DEMENTIA?
This episode introduces a few people who are having memory issues. They suspect that their minds are not working as well as they should be and want to find out why. We track them as they undergo tests and scans for dementia. What will they and the doctors uncover?
EPISODE # 2: THE LONG ROAD AHEAD
Though many link dementia with old age, more people under 60 are now emerging with early onset dementia. We look at how these people face specific challenges in daily living and their future. How do their loved ones cope with unpredictable and sometimes chaotic behaviours?
EPISODE # 3: CAREGIVERS & LOVED ONES
Caring for people with dementia can be a long and challenging journey. We meet caregivers from different walks of life and find out how dementia has impacted and changed their lives. What obstacles must they overcome? What lessons can they learn? And how will they adjust to this new reality?
EPISODE # 4: BEYOND MEDICINE
Hope vs. Reality – we explore two different camps: the scientists who are trying to prevent or reverse Alzheimer’s disease; and those who believe that using social therapies are the best way to manage people with dementia. We examine the possible breakthroughs and the pitfalls of both.
EPISODE # 5: WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS
With Singapore’s rapidly aging population, the number of people at risk of dementia are projected to rise dramatically. Are we prepared? What hurdles must we overcome? We look at Singapore’s unique landscape, and asks how we can build a more dementia friendly society.
