Terence Tan brings his wife with dementia out for a trishaw ride

As a caregiver for someone living with dementia, I can fully appreciate the benefits on mental and physical well-being from outdoor activities and social interaction. Trishaw rides and other nostalgic activities allow them to relive their good old days and can have a positive impact in regulating their mood changes and memory challenges.

I relate well to seniors and am acutely aware that many live isolated lives and in oblivion to the community at large. We are used to saying it takes a village to raise a child but I’d say it also takes a community to care for our seniors – a notion that is less embraced and practiced.
