  • About the Editors
  • Ageing with Dignity, featuring 18 core topics contributed by leading experts, is edited by eminent psychiatrist Prof Kua Ee Heok and Assoc Prof Rathi Mahendran. It captures key findings and insights from a 10-year study on positive ageing and dementia prevention in Singapore, and aims to fill the gap of knowledge on ageing in Singapore. From which, it enables both young and elderly people to have a better and positive perspective of ageing. Some of the most pressing issues covered are mindfulness, diet, smell and loss impairment, oral health, language and memory. It can be a road map for future research enterprise with translational relevance.

  • "Ageing with Dignity describes how the concepts of empathy and the need to recognise the dignity of the elderly – ill or well – can be translated into practice. It should be read and used as a source of inspiration and as a manual for action, worldwide."
    - Professor Norman Sartorius Former Director of Mental Health, World Health Organization, Geneva

    "This is an impressive book and a must-read for the public and seniors.”
    - Professor Helen FK Chiu Emeritus Professor, Department of Psychiatry, The Chinese University of Hong Kong

    - Professor Tan Hao Yang Lead Investigator, Lieber Institute for Brain Development, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, USA
