Abstract

[Extract] Mr Tan, a 73-year-old Chinese male, received a diagnosis of dementia from one of the main hospitals in Singapore in 2009. In 2012, he was admitted to an inpatient ward for an assessment of his challenging behaviour at home, which was increasingly difficult to manage. His wife, who works full time, and the family's live-in domestic helper reported high levels of carer stress and were struggling to cope. The admission was initially designed to give his wife respite and allow for a more planned approach towards managing his behaviour. On the ward his continued challenging behaviours resulted in a referral, by the ward's senior consultant psychiatrist, to inpatient psychology services for assessment.
