Few people are prepared for the responsibilities and tasks involved in caring for the aged. With some foresight and awareness, much can be done to ease the burden of caregiving.
Caregiving pulls individuals in multiple directions. While the work is one of love, the burden can be overwhelming. It can prove extremely difficult for caregivers to adjust to their caregiving role. In addition, caregivers are often overlooked as the needs of the patient take priority.
At CWA, we believe caregiving should not be an overwhelming task. With adequate support and awareness, we hope to reduce the burden that many caregivers shoulder alone and provide a respite from daily struggles.
As part of the Caregiving Welfare Association’s (CWA) expansion plan, CWA is setting up its first Caregivers’ Sanctuary, a therapeutic place which will benefit caregivers and their families seeking respite and assistance. The Sanctuary will be located at One@KentRidge within the vicinity of the National University Hospital (NUH).
Both caregivers and their families will be welcome to the Sanctuary whenever they feel they need a break or to seek support from our social workers and counsellors.
