Resources for Caregivers
Self-care is important for caregivers and there are various respite programmes which enables caregivers to take time off to care for themselves. Here are some that you may recommend to your clients.
Resources for Partners
Based on feedback to AIC, most caregivers do not know where to search nor have time to read through the many resources. As such, AIC has put together a top 5 curated list of resources for caregivers which you can share with them. While the top 5 curated resources provide quick help, we do recognise that partners may need support in sieving out the relevant resources for the caregivers. Complementing the top 5 resources, a consolidated listing of resources has also been pulled together to address the varied needs of the caregivers.
