AWWA Caregiver Service (Disability) aids in addressing the needs of caregivers of persons with disability and/or special needs, from childhood to adulthood.
Caregiver Service (Disability) or CS (D) in short was launched on 1 May 2016. This two-year pilot programme aims to support caregivers of persons with disability and/or special needs through wholistic and multi-pronged approaches.
Here are ways we can help:
Information & Referral Service
If you have a caregiving issue, we want to help. We want to understand your needs, and point you to the right people who can provide the support you require.
Case Management & Counselling
Confide in us! We provide emotional support and counselling services to guide you through your caregiving journey.
Caregiver Respite Programme
Take a break from your caregiving duties with us during weekends and school holidays. We’ll care for your loved ones (up to 18 years old) while you take time to care for yourself. You can also join us in our family outings and activities designed for caregivers and your loved ones with disabilities of any age.
Educational & Skills Training
Caregiving is a journey with specific learning needs. That’s why we hold workshops to help caregivers better cope with the demands of caregiving.
Caregiver’s Care Network
You do not have to walk alone. We have Befrienders, Mutual Help & Interest Groups, as well as a Leadership Development programme to aid caregivers in forming their own community.
If you are caregiving for a loved one with disability, or know someone who does, please reach out to us at:
