Doctor in the House: Community-Based Caregiving for Alzheimer’s

Dr George Lee returns to discuss the latest medical news. Expect deep insights delivered with generous humour. Caring for a family member with Alzheimer’s can be challenging, especially when the caregiver does not have the support that they need. This is where community- and home-based caregiving can step in. Consultant geriatrician Prof Dr Tan Maw Pin and NoorWahidah Hussin, a care professional with a private home-based care provider, joins us to discuss the role of community-based caregiving and whether there’s still a stigma around it.
