In line with the Ministry of Health’s advice to cancel or defer non-essential large-scale events, we will be postponing the Caregiver Public Forum, as seniors account for a sizeable proportion of our forum participants.
We will be informing all the participants and are currently working through the details of the postponement. Information on the updated forum details will be shared when ready.
The Caregiver Public Forum 2020 is co-organised by Agency for Integrated Care (AIC) and National Council of Social Service (NCSS), to provide caregivers with more insights into family roles in caregiving and how to better handle family dynamics.
Happening from 9am to 12.30pm on 15 February 2020 at Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre, the Caregiver Public Forum is a free-to-attend event for everyone.
What's In Store
attend to a wide range of needs of their loved ones. Involving different family members to share the caregiving responsibilities can help to reduce caregiver burnout.
Learn about navigating the family dynamics and caregiving resources from our distinguished local and overseas speakers. Hear from actual caregivers who will share about their experience in managing relationships and caregiving roles. Come visit the booths that unravel support and resources available in the community through the caregiving journey.
