Mdm E’s Story - Caregiver to Son with severe intellectual disability and autism


Mdm E is a single mother caring for her adult son with severe intellectual disability and autism. She has to care for him everyday and only receive some respite when he attends a day care centre for a few hours each week. Mdm E attended a caring for caregivers group where caregivers come together to share their experiences and explore their caregiving journey. Through the group, caregivers learn about resources available to support them. They also discover their strength and resilience and receive encouragement as they continue in their caregiving journey.


Feedback from Mdm E:

In this group, I feel we can meet other parents and hear their sharing. We can become friends. I have also learnt each of us have our perspective and experiences, Through the group I have also received encouragement.
