Dementia Go-To Points at train stations and bus interchanges
These serve as a ‘safe return’ point for the public to bring persons with dementia who may be lost.
There are 17 SMRT train stations and five bus interchanges that are Dementia Go-To Points (GTPs). GTPs are touch points within the community that serve as resource centres to provide information and useful resources on dementia and link those who need help with relevant dementia-related services.
It also serves as a ‘safe return’ point where members of the public can bring persons living with dementia who may appear lost for help. Trained SMRT staff will know how to help to contact their next-of-kin. This is part of the collaboration between SMRT and the Agency for Integrated Care (AIC) under the Dementia-Friendly Singapore initiative.
The GTPs are the following:
5) Kent Ridge
11) Paya Lebar
14) Ang Mo Kio
15) Buona Vista
18) Bukit Panjang Integrated Transport Hub
19) Yishun Integrated Transport Hub
20) Choa Chu Kang Bus Interchange
21) Sembawang Bus Interchange
22) Woodlands Temporary Bus Interchange
