CAREGIVERS SUPPORT SERVICES

MINDS Caregivers Support Services was established to build the capability of caregivers to enhance their caregiving role and to provide support for their social-emotional needs. It is hoped that caregivers with adequate and proper support to mitigate the stress and demands of caring for a person with special needs can result in a balanced life and considerable satisfaction in their caring role.

The support to caregivers is provided through the Caregivers Support Services Centre (CSSC) as well as the Caregivers Support Initiatives (CSI) under each of MINDS schools and centres. Together, we support caregivers in the various ways:

- Information Provision

- Social & Emotional Support

- Financial Support

- Building Caregivers' Capabilities

- Collaboration with relevant organisations and government bodies for Advocacy, Innovation & Research
