Creating a Dementia-Friendly Neighbourhood: A Yio Chu Kang Pilot Project

Creating a Dementia-Friendly Neighbourhood: A Yio Chu Kang Pilot Project is a documentation of the AIC-CLC Dementia-Friendly Neighbourhood Study, which is the first community-based research project that gathers first-hand data and insights from persons living with dementia, their caregivers, and the community, to generate evidence-based and locally validated design principles. The publication documents the study’s multi-stakeholder engagement, through the converging of stakeholders from the built environment, health, social care, and community. We hope this publication will inspire and guide more partners to create dementia-friendly neighbourhoods.



Dementia-Friendly Neighbourhood Design Guide

The Dementia-Friendly Neighbourhood Design Guide serves as a valuable resource for the replication and expansion of dementia-friendly neighbourhoods island-wide. This Guide, built upon the foundation of the AIC-CLC Dementia-Friendly Neighbourhood Study, consolidates and harmonises relevant dementia-friendly principles, guidelines, tools, and perspectives from our various government agencies and international experts. This is a design resource that offers guidance to built environment professionals on design considerations and strategies to creating Dementia-Friendly Neighbourhoods in Singapore’s high-rise, high-density context.
