Age Well Everyday
Today, 1 in 10 seniors who are aged 60 and above in Singapore have dementia. With increased life expectancy and a rapidly ageing population, dementia cases are expected to triple by 2030. It is important to raise awareness of dementia and focus efforts on prevention.

Located at Block 29, Level 2 of Alexandra Hospital, MAELab is an innovative space that showcases seasonal curations of mental health themes.
