Read? One Uncommon Act Of Kindness! (2) Dementia is scary! This morning at Kovan MT station; Uncle8888 while going down the escalator saw this elderly man has been standing near the staircase till he reached the ground of escalator. The elderly man looked lost. Uncle8888 approached him and asked him in Chinese where he want to go. He replied Heartland Mall! Uncle8888 then pointed to the staircase and asked him to go up or take the lift while pointing to the lift! He then replied in English that he is confused. He remembered going to Heartland Mall is by going up the escalator but there is no escalator going up. Uncle8888 then tapped his shoulder and told him sometime the escalator changed direction and asked him to walk to the lift! Scary! Change of escalator direction can made some elderly folks confused over familiar path that they may have taken before.
