In 2019, the Alzheimer's Disease Association (ADA) in Singapore initiated the Wayfinding Project which aims to build a caring and inclusive community supportive of those impacted by dementia. The project includes creating these nostalgic murals among commonly accessed routes so that those with dementia can more easily recognise their surroundings.

People with dementia were also directly involved in discussions and the execution of this project. One of the team members, Emily, who is living with young-onset dementia, shared more about how society can be more inclusive of those with dementia by "accept[ing] and appreciat[ing] people with dementia as individuals who think, behave, and express [them]selves differently from societal norms" and to understand that they have "common needs like everyone – the need to feel accepted and valued as a fellow member of society."
