Source: Pixabay Over the last few decades, lifestyle experts have found a niche teaching many people how to do everyday skills like cooking, cleaning, home maintenance and other management skills. Sometimes called Traditional Skills , these are basic life skills that meet the challenges that come with day-to day-living. Generations ago, these vintage skills were passed down to children, both at home and at school. But as technological advances made it easier to dispose of things rather than to restore them, these skills started to become lost.

SINGAPORE: At his wits’ end, Mr Danny Raven Tan, 53, once threatened his dementia-stricken mother with a chopper because she was “driving him nuts”. Since she was diagnosed with the illness that causes impaired intellectual functions and personality changes in 2015, his mother, who is now 88, would tiresomely ask him about his father and godmother, both of whom had died, frequently raise her voice at him and accuse their helper of stealing her money. “At that time, I didn’t know anything about dementia and it was eating me up,” said Mr Tan, who quit his full-time job in marketing to be the primary caregiver for his mother and now runs an art gallery. In 2018, Mr Tan founded Enable Asia, a platform that focuses on dementia awareness and respite for caregivers.
