Singapore's large public housing estates — known as HDB blocks — can be disorienting even for people without memory loss. To help those suffering from dementia find their way, the Alzheimer's Disease Association (ADA) created murals on the walls of ground floor spaces in a block in the Kebun Baru district.
The project uses images chosen by neighborhood residents with dementia. All are of familiar, old-fashioned food items, including a red tortoise cake, satay, a kopi cup and White Rabbit candy. (More and better images on news site Mothership.)
