About this event

Caregiving can be challenging as caregivers often need to juggle multiple roles and duties. Knowing where to locate and how to discern useful information on the internet can significantly reduce caregiver stress. Join us for an informative session as our speaker, Ms Carol Yeung provides an overview of the various support schemes and resources available for caregivers to tap on and Ms Gina Peh shares how we can work with one another to create a better care system in our community. 

  • Presented by: Ms Carol Yeung, Senior Assistant Director, Agency for Integrated Care (Singapore) & Ms Gina Peh, Social Worker, Montfort Care (Singapore)
  • Facilitated by: Ms Anita Ho, Associate Faculty, Singapore University of Social Sciences (Singapore)

About Time of Your Life Celebration 2022 

Connections: Past, Present and Future 

How can we make the journey of ageing a better one? By reconnecting to our past, examining our present, and striving towards the future, we will reimagine how this voyage can be made more gratifying. Join us to connect with gerontology experts and community partners as we delve into facets of ageing like caregiving, gerontechnology, lifelong learning, and physical and mental well-being.

Jointly brought to you by the National Library Board (NLB) and Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS).
