About Campaign

ends 30 Nov 2022, 11:59 PM
A dementia diagnosis does not only impact the person living with dementia, but also the people around them.

Being a caregiver can be a labour of love, but it can also be stressful and put a huge strain on one's physical and mental health.

A caregiver's role is also ever-changing, as they constantly adjust to the evolving needs and behaviours of their loved one with dementia, especially as the condition progresses.

At Dementia Singapore, our Caregiver Support & Network (CSN) programme ensures that we provide the right kind of emotional support for caregivers of persons with dementia.

CSN sessions promote self-care by providing a platform for caregivers to nurture new hobbies and interests, learn skills gain respite, and connect with other caregivers. Caregivers need all the help they can get to manage and overcome their struggles, allowing them to continue on with the strength to be a compassionate and loving caregiver to their loved ones.

These t-shirts were lovingly hand-made by the CSN 'Knits & Knots' knitting group. 'Knits & Knots' is led by Katherine Lim, our self-advocate who is living with dementia, and her daughters and caregivers, Belinda and Babara Seet.

With a small donation of $100 you will receive a Smiley Bear dressed in adorable yarn-knitted t-shirt! (while stocks last). Donors will be notified on the self-collection details.
