As a caregiver, you understand the challenges that come with caring for a loved one with dementia. The emotional and physical toll it takes can be overwhelming at times. However, with the recent launch of the Action Plan for Successful Ageing, caregivers and people with dementia can receive more support than ever before. This comprehensive plan includes measures such as providing training for caregivers, developing specialized care facilities, and increasing funding for dementia research.

The plan also includes the expansion of the Respite Care Scheme, which provides temporary relief for caregivers, and the development of more dementia-friendly communities. These initiatives are crucial in helping caregivers to manage their responsibilities and improve the quality of life for people with dementia.

As a caregiver, you may feel isolated and unsupported at times. But with the support of this plan, you are not alone. There are resources available to help you navigate the challenges of caregiving and find the support you need.
