About this Event

Caregiving: Have we done enough?

Zoom in with us to catch Dr. Tan Weng Mooi from the Agency for Integrated Care and CEOs from the Alzheimer’s Disease Association and Caregivers Alliance Ltd to learn about the support programmes for caregivers.

Is enough being done to support families in their caregiving journey? Are current programmes by social service agencies meeting their caregiving needs?

New programmes, services and initiatives have been introduced to better support caregivers in their caregiving journey and enable CAL to reach out to more caregivers through partnering hospitals, corporates, faith-based groups and Institutes of Higher Learning. CAL is also driven by the desire to empower more caregivers to make a difference in the lives of other caregivers through meaningful volunteering.
