Problem Statement

According to the Well-being of the Singapore Elderly (WiSE) study led by the Institute of Mental Health, one in 10 people aged 60 and above may have dementia, and there is a rising trend of people suffering from this condition. Persons with dementia still experience stigma and problems integrating into society. How can we help people with dementia with their rejection and loneliness, and support them so they can feel accepted?

Project Description

Memento is the Latin word for 'Remember'. The team's aim is to raise awareness and education of persons with dementia, so as to better integrate them into society. They want to give them a renewed purpose to life, by providing active aging programs and activities to engage these individuals. 

Memento aims to set up a bistro to hire, train, and promote the rehiring of persons with dementia.
