CAREconnect Trishaw Ride at Jurong Lake Garden – By CAREkaki Corrine Ong
How do you plan for a fun bonding time with your loved ones?
Our families in Boon Lay and a few from different parts of Singapore gathered at Jurong Lake Garden on 19 March 2022 for a trishaw ride. Kudos to the great weather, everyone enjoyed the breeze and greenery, got close to nature, and most important of all, have a bonding session with their loved ones.
Our fellow caregivers managed to network, exchange contacts, and share their experiences with each other too.
A family even spotted the ice-cream uncle during their ride and decided to make their way for their cool down session with ice-cream for all!
The trishaw ride is definitely not an everyday moment for the families. The smiles and positive feedback from the session are priceless and are looking forward to more of such engagement in the future.
Heartfelt thanks to Cycling Without Age Singapore for their support to bring on a brand new experience, fun and fond memories to our residents. Not forgetting the youth volunteers, CAREkakis and Boon Lay Grassroots Leaders for their engagement activities too.

The Purple Parade 2023, held on November 4th, was a heartwarming celebration of inclusion and support for individuals with special needs, their caregivers, and supporters.
You cannot pour from an empty cup; self-care is a necessary part of being an effective caregiver. It is perfectly okay to pamper yourself to something you’d like to do, prioritise rest and lean on others when you feel weary.
Over the past 4 months, CaringSG has continued to run events focusing on a variety of topics such as art therapy, LPA, trishaw rides and a special treat to a local performance.
The events were kindly sponsored by the Enabling Lives Initiative (ELI) Grant (funded by Tote Board and managed by SG Enable) and Temasek Foundation.
Thank you caregivers for your resilience, for always choosing to seek and celebrate the good in the midst of everyday challenges.
Many caregivers have had our fair shares of emotional coaster rides. A simple act of joining a mother’s network group opened my eyes.
