"TIME TO RE-IMAGINE DEMENTIA" - 21ST AUGUST 2022

Dr Cecilia Chan

Gerontologist Dr Cecilia Chan Woen Min gave a passionate and eye-opening session on dementia at SMC's PAC hall on the morning of 21st August 2022. Despite the partial road closures due to the city-wide Marathon, many parishioners turned up for this event organised by the SMC Family Life Ministry. This subject which is something often thought of as taboo, was tackled with a lot of useful facts,videos and interesting real-life stories gleaned from Dr Cecilia's encounters with people living with dementia and their care-givers. It was interesting to note that only 10% of the so-called odd behaviours we see in people with dementia are pathological and a lot of it is a reaction to the behaviour of the people around them (e.g. family members, care-givers, acquaintances and strangers). In view of this, much thought needs to be given to the present treatment of dementia patients, as medication alone is obviously not holistic. Proper care of people living with dementia requires building relationships with them based on trust,love and understanding.

The session ended with a testimony from Mr. Peter Bucher, a Swiss by birth and Perakian by choice (his own words), who highlighted the positive and therapeutic effects of the arts on his wife Irene, who was diagnosed with vascular dementia in 2020. He shared how the use of creative activities like painting and pottery-making helped his wife live a full life despite her dementia diagnosis.
