Approximately 590 000 people are projected to have dementia by 2050 in Malaysia.
Dementia is not a part of normal ageing.
It is a medical condition that causes brain cells to die at a faster rate than normal. The resulting progressive cognitive decline leads to increasing difficulties in coping with everyday activities. A common symptom is poor short-term memory. On average, a person with dementia lives four to eight years after diagnosis, but can live as long as 20 years.
Dementia is not just forgetfulness
The effects of dementia go beyond affecting the ability to remember things, think clearly, communicate with others, and to care for ourselves. Mood swings and even changes to your loved one’s personality and behavior are also part of it. When caring for a person with dementia, irregular behaviours and communication difficulties can make caregiving challenging.
Dementia care across the stages
The symptoms of dementia progress over time and changes across the stages. During this period, dementia can be separated into three categories: mild , moderate and advanced. It may be difficult to place a person with dementia in a specific stage as stages may overlap.
These stages help to provide some insight on the symptoms, how the abilities of our loved one change and possible care support needed.

What our customers say
The team has been sublime to work with albeit having to temporarily halt engaging them for care services due to the pandemic situation now in Malaysia. All teething issues in the initial phase of engagement were swiftly addressed and satisfactorily so. Special shoutout to Shirley from Homage who has been responding promptly to all my queries and requests (and went far and beyond my expectations with her actions in all counts).
My father had a fall recently and sustained a hip fracture. Living overseas and not being able to travel back home to assist with recovery was very worrying. A friend recommended Homage to help with his nursing care. They are prompt in replying to messages. The care provided was excellent and highly professional. We have been very pleased with the service. There are times when we had to change the appointment time and they obliged and looked into our needs.
Our experience has been very positive. So far, we have used their Care Pros perhaps 10 times (for checking in on mum) and she has been nothing short of kind and supportive. The coordinator Bel has also been a great help since day one. I find the price to be reasonable. Love the reporting feature on their app. You could see what has been done during the visit. It’s worth trying out.
My 85-year-old mother, who underwent post-ventral incisional hernia surgery in January 2019 had CPs from Homage, all professionally trained, from leading Malaysian hospitals. The CPs nursed my mother with diligence, and compassion; providing invaluable tips on elderly caregiving to family members. My gratitude and appreciation to Team Homage.
I had positive experiences with Homage so far. They are flexible, affordable, and professional. The coordinator from Homage has been very helpful and accommodating to my request since day one. Caregivers assigned to take care of my grandmother are punctual, professionally trained and attentive. Hope they will continue to serve well.
Homage has helped us a lot in assisting the recovery of our beloved father. They provide us with a comprehensive explanation regarding the physiotherapy program. The therapist they sent is highly qualified, courteous, passionate, and gave outstanding service. And above all, the charges are fair and affordable.
Thank you Homage for your assistance after my mom was discharged from the hospital due to dengue fever. Mom regained her confidence to take her first shower after discharge with the help of Homage's caregiver, something my domestic helper will not be able to do. Also to guide my domestic helper to handle her in a more hygienic way. My maid learned the proper method and able to give better care to mom now. Highly recommend it to people who looking for professional care services to manage family members who need help.
It's really hassle-free when u can have the COVID-19 swab test without leaving ur home. The response is really fast, the app is efficient. Thank you for your services.
I want to thank Homage for their excellent service especially Ms. Ginger for her brilliant communication and customer service and for making the necessary arrangements. She does a good follow-up before and after the physio, also accurate feed-back. We appreciate Ms. Shu for her excellent physio service which made my mother gain confidence that she can walk again. Ms. Shu is very patient, hard-working, and committed to seeing my mum will be completely restored and healed. Thank you.
