S$4.4m study on well-being of elderly

The Institute of Mental Health (IMH) is working with international and local researchers on a three-year nationwide study on the well-being of the elderly in Singapore. 

Called Well-being of the Singapore Elderly (WiSE), it'll be comprehensive and aims to establish data on the burden of dementia and depression among the elderly here. 

It also aims to bridge the knowledge gap on the risk factors, healthcare use and economic impact. 

The $4.4 million programme is funded by the Ministry of Health and Singapore Millennium Foundation.
