Serena Lim is a seasoned educator with over two decades of experience teaching and writing for post-secondary and tertiary audiences. Remembering for the Two of Us is her first children’s book, birthed from a desire to create awareness amongst children and families about the pressing issue of dementia in a rapidly ageing population, such as Singapore’s.
Serena was thrust into the role of caregiver five years ago when her mother was diagnosed with dementia. She understands first-hand the struggles faced by caregivers and is thankful for the support received from medical personnel and fellow caregivers, especially those from her support group at ProjectCare (projectcare.co), as well as extended family, friends and BFFs.
Serena spends as much time as she can with her mother, enjoying simple pleasures. When the going gets tough, she chooses to see the lighter side of things, following the simple credo: When you don’t know whether to laugh or cry, choose to laugh.
Serena enjoys travelling, writing and reading, and draws inspiration from many gifted faith writers. Food also holds a special place in her heart.
