HPB's 12-week dementia programme for senior citizens launched

The Health Promotion Board (HPB) has launched a new 12-week mental well-being programme to encourage senior citizens to take the first step in reducing their risk of dementia. Aimed at those aged 50 and above, the Mental First Aid Kit is a 12-week programme that includes mentally stimulating activities such as drama and games sessions, to help them sharpen their minds. The programme will start next month at Marine Parade Family Service Centre and grassroot organisations. The HPB will roll out the programme to the rest of Singapore within the next three years. Health Minister Gan Kim Yong was the guest of honour at the launch on Sunday morning, at East Coast Park.
