CaringSG Feb and Mar 2023 Needs Assessment Events @ Kampong Glam
In order to check on the well-being of caregivers (such as financial, health and social), CaringSG conducted a needs assessment exercise for caregivers residing at Kampong Glam on 12 Feb and 18 Mar 2023.

During the house visits, staff and volunteers also asked about the caregivers’ daily caregiving duties and whether they required any additional help as some of them might not be aware of the existing government schemes or avenues to seek help from.
A total of 23 families were engaged during the 2 dates (13 families in February and 10 families in March) and both outreach events were also supported by Enabling Lives Grant Initiative (funded by Tote Board and managed by SG Enable), Temasek Foundation, and Kampong Glam CCC.
For all the caregivers out there, we see you care. And we care for you, too. For all the professionals who are out there, thank you for coming together with caregivers to learn and grow together.
A wonderful 3,000 caregivers and their loved ones joined us at the CARECarnivals, at Enabling Village, Kampung Admiralty, Heartbeat@Bedok

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.
