ANNOUNCEMENTS


Join our Elderly Mental Health Programme, "The Mind-Able"

The Mind-Able Programme is introduced to help the elderly at risk or diagnosed with mild dementia. Dementia is a chronic, progressive deterioration of mental function typified by loss of memory. Early intervention–including providing support and care can help them deal with the challenges of their diagnosis positively, and lead meaningful lives.

****************************************

We are recruiting Community Caregivers!

In a rapid ageing society, one of the key challenges faced by elderly is the continued medical and social support they require upon discharge from acute hospitals.   The lack of trained caregivers in providing suitable and necessary care to the elderly after hospitalisation is often a contributing factor towards an elderly being readmitted to the acute hospital.   

To mitigate this service gap, the Caregiving Welfare Association (CWA), in collaboration with the National University Hospital (NUH), has developed a Community Cradle Programme to care, nurture, support and hold the elderly within the community after hospitalisation, by training a cohort of professional community caregivers who are sufficiently competent to cope with the medical and social needs of the elderly.    
In doing so, we hope the elderly could age in place and that institutionalisation would be the last resort.

Join us now as Community Caregivers!

SHINING THE SPOTLIGHT ON CAREGIVERS

- Caring for mother like how she cared for me -

Dearest Mak, you have always been a petite woman but look how small and hunched you are now compared to few years ago…

- Mother has made me a stronger person -

Dear Dad, people always say that struggling to balance employment and the care of looking after an elderly parent can be taxing. That cannot be denied. But for me, having a supportive employer and an understanding father like you does make a difference ...

- A Caregiver's Wish for Her Dad -

When you were born 70 years ago, Ma had just turned 21 and, in our youthful ignorance, your Pa and I did not realise that your cries as a newborn were different from other babies…

- A mother’s heavy heart -

Dear hubby, never did I imagine something like this would happen. You were still agile and earning a living for both of us, but the two massive strokes you suffered in a short span of five days changed everything…
