Locally, according to the Well-being of the Singapore Elderly (WiSE) study led by the IMH in 2015, one in 10 people aged 60 and above may have dementia. Dementia is an illness that leads to the decline of the brain and its abilities in judgement, language and behaviour. Before an unexpected event should happen or before a person becomes unable to speak for him or herself , it is important to start planning for their future health and personal care.  As a family doctor, you can start conversations about Advance Care Planning (ACP), to guide your patients in documenting their preferred healthcare options . These conversations should take place in a setting that is most comfortable for your patients. Patients can be assured that their loved ones and healthcare team will  be aware of their wishes and preferred care arrangements when they are not able to decide for themselves. ACP is for everybody regardless of age and health conditions.
