Caregiver Support and Training Programme

Our Caregiver Training and Support Programme (CTSP) contains three modules and is designed to support and prepare family members and their helpers for their caregiving role. Caregivers can pick up essential caregiving skills and techniques and understand the various resources available in the community. They can also learn basic behavioral management skills to cope with the demands of caregiving. Through sharing experience and encouragement with other caregivers, this interactive training programme helps caregivers find meaning in their caregiving journey and deliver efficient care with confidence.

Understanding Caregiving

Be empowered as a caregiver. Our nurses and medical social workers will guide you in becoming a Competent, Caring and Champion caregiver through these modules:

Module 1: You will learn useful and essential skill on how to care for your loved ones who are frail, with disabilities, chronic illnesses or dementia.

Module 2: You will learn about the psychosocial needs of your care recipient, identify how to avoid caregiver burnouts through self-care, behavioral management techniques and effective communication skills. Identify schemes and resources available in the community that will empower you to be a better caregiver.

Module 3: Pick up useful tips on how you can create stronger bonds with your loved ones and turn your caregiving journey into one that is meaningful and enjoyable.   

To provide caregivers with peace of mind, elder-sitting is offered to those who have signed up for our Caregiver Support and Training programme. We will arrange an elder-sitter to accompany your loved ones while you attend the training with us.

A certificate will be issued to participants who have completed the course (module 1).

Training sessions can be conducted in different languages but will be subjected to our trainers’ availability. A minimum class size of 6 is required to commence each module. For more details on the available dates, please call us at 6854 8300 or email .
