Embrace and Engage: The Way Ahead in Building a Dementia-inclusive Society Sharing Session (supported by CMA)

Organised by Jockey Club Centre for Positive Ageing and supported by CMA, the sharing session will introduce the Jockey Club Caring Communities for Dementia Campaign, which is an important project for the community, with the support of technology, to help locate people with dementia who have gotten lost. Due to cognitive decline, people with dementia have a higher incidence rate of getting lost. Through the “Dementia’s Secret Angel” APP and the iBeacon device, family members and caregivers of those with dementia who are lost can share vital information. The public can play the role of “Dementia Angels” and help locate people once receiving a lost-person report. The goal is to rally the community to become dementia-friendly and help return those who have lost their way to their families.
