4E’s Action for Dementia
Early detection, Early diagnosis, Early intervention, and Early planning
Certain signs of dementia, such as memory decline, are usually being regarded as an inevitable part of normal ageing and not duly attended to, so it is not difficult to imagine that caregivers may misunderstand some early signs as characteristics of normal ageing during the first 1-2 years after onset, which until more obvious symptoms occurred. Timely diagnosis, early intervention and mutual support of pwd is urgently called for, as for those grassroots families, “waiting” is the only way to arrive at a diagnosis and having support, and these waiting times exactly are the early stage and golden period of time for intervention.
Sponsored by Ronald and Rita Mcaulay Foundation, we aim for Early detection, Early diagnosis, Early intervention, and Early planning by providing Early Detection Service, Community Memory Clinic, day centre services, Care planning consultation and Emotional support support.
