Smiley Bears are cuddly and lovable bears dressed in hand-knitted T-shirts made by Dementia Singapore’s Caregiver Support & Network knitting club, “Knits & Knots”. The Caregiver Support & Network programme provides a space for caregivers to have respite and enjoy selfcare, all while learning a new skill and connecting with others. The knitting club is led by Katherine Lim and her daughters Belinda and Babara Seet. Belinda and Babara are caregivers to Katherine, who is living with dementia.
The bears are dressed in purple and yellow-themed knitted T-shirts, with purple symbolising the global dementia movement to show support and raise awareness of dementia. The strong and vibrant colour combination also represents Dementia Singapore’s commitment to serving the dementia community.
Every bear has a different personality, reflected by each of their unique T-shirt designs (which may be different from the photos) created by our caregivers. These adorable bears are perfect gifts for any occasion, whether it is a birthday or holiday.
We hope that you will pledge your support as we strive to improve the well-being of persons impacted by dementia and their caregivers. All proceeds from the sale will go towards providing immediate resources and support for persons living with dementia and their caregivers impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and bolster ADA’s vital outreach programmes and services, as well as our operations.
