About This Book

Ageing is not all grey. This book explores the minds 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. This 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". This book, a distillate of five epidemiological studies, 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 caregivers and young people - just about everyone!
