NCD Chronicles #19: “I Slapped Dementia In The Face”

When we hear the word “dementia”, what many of us picture is often the last stages of the condition where the individual has lost much of their cognitive ability and memory. But that’s only a small picture of what dementia really is. What are the lived realities of people living with milder forms of dementia and how can we support their ability to still be independent? On this episode of NCD Chronicles, we feature Vanetha Ramiah’s journey of living with vascular dementia and the stigma she’s had to battle along the way. We also hear from consultant geriatrician Dr Khor Hui Min. 


NCD Chronicles is a series about people living with NCDs, going beyond the diagnosis to explore their personal experiences, their challenges, as well as the impact of their health condition on their loved ones. These stories reveal the importance of understanding the unique struggles and needs of the individuals behind the disease, in our response to the NCD epidemic.
