Individual Training & Support (ITS)
Caregivers of persons with mental health issues often face tremendous stress in having to provide for the practical needs of their loved ones. As a result of caregiving responsibilities, some caregivers may be on the verge of burnout and may not have the capacity to attend the CAL's C2C programme.
To meet their needs, the Individual Training and Support Programme (ITS) was started in April 2015.
The ITS programme provides emotional support, coaching, and referrals for the convenience of those who cannot leave their loved ones for long periods. Sessions may be through face-to-face meetings at a location convenient to caregivers, or through other means such as phone calls, messaging, or email.
If this support is what you need, please do not hesitate to contact us.
The Engagement to Empowerment (E2E) Team facilitates the formation of community-based peer-support caregiver networks in six constituencies: Bukit Gombak, Fengshan, Henderson/ Dawson, Nee Soon East and Tampines.
In partnership with People’s Association, the team helps caregivers to connect with one another, share experiences, enhance their caregiving skills and learn self-care.
Under the programme, caregivers form support groups that meet once a month over the course of a year, discussing a range of topics. If you are a graduate of CAL’s Caregivers-to-Caregivers (C2C) programme and wish to journey with fellow caregivers staying near you, do contact the team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
