Zoom In#2: Skin Care & Aging (Facts Vs Myths) by St Luke’s Hospital

About this Event

Advanced Practice Nurse Kavitha will share with us on how to look after the largest organ in our body.

This talk will dispel common myths about skin for seniors. How should we take care of our ageing skin? What can we do to prevent wounds for the bed-bound elderly? How do we care for our loved ones with wounds?

Yvonne Lau, Assistant Director of St Luke’s Community Wound Centre and Academy, will also be at hand to help with the Q & A session. Zoom in with us!
