SINGAPORE – To help dementia patients find their way home, Housing Board blocks in Nee Soon South and Chong Pang will be getting fresh coats of paint in red, green and blue from February next year.

Similar to zoned car parks, the blocks will also feature icons – pineapple for red blocks, fish for blue blocks and rubber trees for green blocks. Block numbers will also be painted prominently on the sides of the blocks and on their pillars.

Plans for these features and other infrastructural upgrades such as clearer signage and more resting places were unveiled on Sunday morning (Oct 13).
