Caregiver Support Group

caregiver support group.bmp

Caregivers often carry the weight alone, their struggles hidden beneath the surface.

Our monthly support groups, including Art Therapy (English), Art Therapy (Mandarin), and Mindfulness-based Sessions (Bilingual), are crafted to provide emotional and psychological support in a safe environment. Led by compassionate professionals such as Ms Jeanette Chan, Ms Erin Lee, and Ms Ng Jue Ann, our sessions offer a space where caregivers can express themselves freely and find understanding.

During the sessions, caregivers have the opportunity to recognise and manage their stress better through reflection, acquiring knowledge and skills, and learning from other members' experiences. The sharing of experiences fosters mutual support, allowing caregivers to find respite and better manage the challenges they face.
