SEOUL, Jun. 28 (Korea Bizwire) — A new survey has found that for most people, the one last memory that they did not want to lose was of their “family members”, even if all else failed them if dementia were to strike.
Memories of their children, especially, were what people wanted to remember the most regarding memories of “family members.”
Pharmaceutical company Handok conducted the survey jointly with the Seoul Metropolitan Government as part of efforts to promote a campaign on dementia prevention.
The survey was carried out by asking 373 senior citizens about “memories that they did not want to lose.”
For more than half of the senior citizens (66 percent), memories of family members were the ones that were dearest to them, followed by memories of their own life (12.5 percent), their hometown (3.5 percent), friends (3.2 percent), and their childhood (3 percent).
More specifically, when it came to family members, 38 percent of respondents wanted to remember “memories of their children” followed by “family” (28 percent), “spouse” (12.3 percent), “parents” (12 percent), and “grandchildren” (7.4 percent).
