With Singapore's population ageing rapidly, step-down care for the relatively less mobile elderly will increase yearly.

NTUC Eldercare is gearing up to provide training to help prepare its staff to deal with this trend.

"Care@home", also known as "Together we care", will train family members and maids.

A support system such as monthly training workshops , self care tips, practical skills and emotional care will also be included in the training program.  thumbs up

A person who looks after a sick relative at home is known as a Caregiver. Normally a Caregiver will be feeling more stress-out and hopeless if he/she is not trained to take care of the patient. So where can the caregivers turn to for help ?

Try the following Caregivers Support Group :

1. The Alzheimer's Disease Association ( Singapore )
    Tel : 67375667.
2. The Rainbow Centre support group ( for parents of children with special needs ).
    Tel : 64727077 ( family life services )

Training for Caregivers :

1. Touch Caregivers Support. ( Training programmes can be conducted in your home )
    Tel : 62586797
2. The Tsao Foundation ( Dementia Care )
    Tel : 65939500

What is Dementia ?

Dementia is a disease which affects the brain. The brain cells are destroyed and this results in impaired memory, our thinking and behaviour.

It is not part of the normal ageing process.

It is an illness more commonly seen in the elderly.

Health-care fund for North East Seniors. ( Punggol Pasir-Ris GRC )

Seniors in North East who have problems paying for their medical bills, can tap into a $200,000 medical fund donated by New Moon together with the North East CDC.  It is also meant for drugs and payment for day care rehabitation services.

Condition : Only for families with a monthly per capita household income of below $500.

North East District Mayor Teo said, " the $200,000 is only a start. The CDC is willing to match up 1:1 with any donors willing to contribute to the fund. He stressed, " if somebody come out with a million, CDC will match up with another million.

Applications for the Senior Health-Care Fund can be made at the North East CDC, community centres, hospitals, polyclinics and day care rehabitation centres.
