Life Hacking Dementia
@ ADI Asia Pacific Regional Conference 2019
There are 10 million new cases of dementia every year, with the odds being 1 in 70 people being affected. If caught unprepared, it can strip you of autonomy and change your life as you know it.
But it doesn’t have to be so – learning to anticipate how dementia could
affect your lifestyle and planning for it can help you retain meaningfulness should dementia occur, and thrive in spite of it. But it can only happen if you plan BEFORE dementia strikes.
Come listen to our 4 amazing speakers on stage at the 21st ADI Asia Pacific Regional Conference 2019 – learn from their expertise and apply key strategies to life-hack dementia.
Our 4 Speakers’ Topics
The Best of Me @ Every Stage of Life
“Life is in different stages. Every stage of life is the foundation for the next stage of life. Every stage of live must be fully-lived.” ― Lailah Gifty Akita
What is the concept of life Care? How does Advance Care Planning (ACP) comes into play as we move into the life cycle of being dependent, independent to more dependent? What matters and how do we make it the best of me as we age.
Dementia & Financial Planning
Financial planning is not just about retirement. As we live longer, the possibility of health issues is inevitable and may require care. Financial planning often gets pushed aside because of the stress and fear the topic evokes.
However, financial stress can be reduced by preparing for care costs. The sooner planning begins, the more the person with dementia may be able to participate in decision-making.
The Realities of Dementia & Legacy Planning
Through effective storytelling and a combination of personal experience, this session will provide compelling reasons why planning ahead is important, more so when dementia strikes a personal family member.
Angjolie will cover why it is necessary to enable those living in the early stages of the disease to undertake appropriate steps to plan for the future and what are the current mechanisms and support framework available in Singapore to cope with the raising number of dementia-stricken individuals.
Where There’s a Will – The Link between Estate Planning & ACP
When you have assets that you wish to bequeath to someone you care about, you should have a Will. It gives you the flexibility to change your mind when there is a need to and control over your assets.
The session will cover aspects that you need to look into when you prepare your Will. Getting it done early is key before your mind and body requires care during the assisted living phase of your life. Other important areas such as having a trust will be covered to compliment a Will in providing the finances.
