This year’s conference also focused on championing the voices of young people beyond country borders to empower other youths out there and challenge traditional “boundaries” to advocate and play a role in the awareness of dementia.
Gillian Tee, Homage’s co-founder and CEO, kicked off the first session of Day 1 with a sharing titled “Home Care Best Practices”, talking about using technology to transform the caregiving experience for the elderly and how Homage is filling the gap in bringing on-demand personalised home care as a holistic care solution.
“Technology can be an enabler to reduce cost and improve the well-being and the lives of the people you care for.”

Melissa Chan, our Head of Community and Outreach and who is also the founder of Project We Forgot, spoke in few sessions on Day 2 and 3 about the shift from informal care to formal care, the challenges of caregiving & how youths should pay more attention to dementia.
Melissa was also on the panel discussion to talk about dementia as a global health priority from an international standpoint.
