about

Ageing is not all grey. Elderly people are often portrayed in grim statistics as a faceless population. This book is not about arid facts but explores the mind of a generation who survived the Second World War and witnessed the dramatic rise of Singapore from third world to first. The 30 years of research on the mental health of the Singapore elderly is a tapestry of myriad colours of people from different ethnicities, cultures and social hierarchies. The book documents the social transformation of medical research, from epidemiological surveys to interventional studies of translational relevance, with the tagline ‘preventive medicine in the community by the community for the community’. A distillate of five epidemiological studies, this book is written from a longitudinal perspective, viewed through the lens of time by a doctor who conducted the research with his team. It will interest not only health professionals and policy makers but also the elderly, family caregiver and young people – just about everyone!
