It is time for the second edition of the Enabling Festival 2019 in Singapore. Enable Asia, is a social enterprise, founded in 2017. Its mission is to address the rapid rise of dementia in Singapore and Asia and to help people with dementia to live with dignity and grace, reduce the stress experienced by caregivers, promote innovative Asian-centric dementia-friendly products and well designed living spaces and provide relevant healthcare knowledge. Their ultimate goal is to build an inclusive dementia-friendly society that is tolerant and mindful. The team wants to stimulate industries, create jobs and positively impact lives and hope people will understand the meaning of love and humanity.
