Caregivers taught to manage mental, emotional stress

14 Feb 2016, The Straits Times

Ren Ci Community Hospital and Brahm Centre, a TCTF-supported non-profit centre, launched the Mindful Caregiver programme focused on helping caregivers manage their stress. The centre will hold twice-weekly workshops for patients at Ren Ci’s hospital wards to toughen their mental states and help them accept their conditions. The programme also offers befriending services and support groups to caregivers and patients after the latter have been discharged. The programme is largely funded by the Tote Board, with private sector support from the Tan Chin Tuan Foundation, the Wan Family and Lee Foundation.
