Caregiver Support Network (CSN) has been an important feature under Dementia-Friendly Singapore, and its goal is to empower caregivers through Peer Support Network focusing on self-care, mindset change and recognition. As such, we see a need for more CSNs to be set up within the community. Therefore, we have developed both resources (toolkit and video) to empower our community partners and individuals to:

1) Set up a Caregiver Support Network that emphasises self-care, peer support and recognising caregivers’ well-being in the community

2) Implement an effective Caregiver Support Network

Namaste Care is a therapeutic care approach to support persons living with moderate to advanced dementia. It meets their sensory and emotional aspirations through the loving provision of personalized and sensory stimulating activities within a tranquil environment.

In collaboration with the Agency for Integrated Care (AIC), Apex Harmony Lodge (AHL) launched a Namaste Care Training Video to empower care professionals and caregivers in the community to adopt Namaste Care. In doing so, AIC and AHL hope that more persons living with dementia can benefit from this care approach.
