Dementia Friends App

In collaboration with the Agency for Integrated Care and the Integrated Health Information Systems, NYP developed the Dementia Friends app that serves as a one-stop platform to provide resources and support for caregivers.

The app allows families of a missing person with dementia to send an alert with details of the missing person to app users. Users can then report sightings of the person through the app, alert the caregivers or even accompany the person to over 200 designated Go-To points all over Singapore.


Also included are up-coming events on care-giving, useful information on dementia and other resources such as a list of services for persons with dementia and their caregivers, and financial schemes.


The app was officially launched on 25 October 2018, and within a year, more than 50 people aged between 50 and 90, who were reported lost, were found through this app. Dementia-Friendly Communities have also been formed in Yishun, Hong Kah North, MacPherson, Queenstown, Fengshan and Bedok.
