Freedom is on the Horizon – ISL Malta is proud to have contributed to this worthy cause. It is our way of giving back to the community.
In 2013, a Euroderm study showed that there were an estimated 5,301 patients in Malta living with dementia: statistically, that meant 1.26 per cent of the population. And the numbers are expected to have risen since then, too.
The condition, which manifests itself as memory disorders, personality changes and impaired reasoning, drastically affects the lives of those suffering from it by making common daily tasks incredibly dangerous, particularly as dementia sufferers can not only forget the faces and names of their loved ones but also forget to eat, consume stuff that is not fit for humans, and wander into streets without noticing oncoming cars, among other things.
