It is estimated that there are more than 100,000 people living with dementia in Hong Kong, most of them live in the community and have not been detected or diagnosed. Since the symptoms of cognitive impairment are easily confused with normal aging, the person, family or friends may find it difficult to judge. And even if you have doubts, you may not know how to ask for help, which delays treatment and services. The talk will introduce some common help-seeking cases, and bring out the symptoms that need attention, and how different professions including hospitals, clinics and social services can cooperate to promote the help-seeking process. Our speakers will also answer the questions and confusions encountered in the process.

*Remark: The language of this talk is Cantonese.
