The Novel Coronavirus 19 has caused a global pandemic in 2020 with millions of people affected worldwide with hundreds of thousands of deaths reported thus far. In Singapore, even though the death rate has been under control the measures taken by the government to control the spread of COVID-19 had some impact on our elderly, especially the elderly living with dementia. This study showed that our caregivers for the older persons with dementia seemed to have coped well and some have even reported positive impact of COVID 19 on their PWD and themselves.
