On 1 December 2018, Silver Caregivers Co-operative (SCCL) participated in the South-West Community Development Council (CDC) launch of “Caregiving @ South West”. This was the second time that South-West CDC organised such event that focused on supporting caregivers with a range of resources and network. Caregiving @ South West is a three-year initiative that promotes holistic caregiver support through the three pillars of Celebrate, Support and Empower.

The event was graced by the Minister of Health Gan Kim Yong and South West District Mayor Low Yen Ling. Mr Gan Kim Yong said, “Caregivers play a vital role in supporting seniors…All of us can lend a helping hand to the elderly and their caregivers. Every little action goes a long way.” Ms Low Yen Ling announced three new initiatives by the South-West CDC to better support caregivers, especially in an aging society with smaller families.

The event was attended by more than 500 people including seniors, caregivers and care-recipients. Both Mr Gan and Ms Low visited SCCL’s booth and browsed through the various programmes, workshops and support offered to caregivers. They affirmed the good work and comprehensive caregiver programmes provided by SCCL, and looked forward to more in the upcoming year.
