S3 Wellness Programmes

CAREGIVERS PROGRAMME

Caring for someone with stroke is often challenging for families and friends. Caregivers are concerned about their loved one but are often frustrated, angry and fearful as they attempt to manage the care of the person’s illness.

At S3, we focus on providing for the stroke survivors, their families, caregivers, domestic helpers and the extended stroke community.

 

Mental Wellness Programme

S3 Mental Wellness Programme provides socio-emotional and psychological support to the caregivers. 

Social Events

S3 organises social events to improve social connectedness between its members, caregivers and volunteers.

Caregivers-Stroke Survivors Communication Workshop

The workshop offers guidelines that are easy to understand and a wealth of tips about what to say and do, as well as what to avoid saying and doing. The topics covers areas of communicating, helping, listening and observing, relating and responding. Each topic, such as avoiding harmful statements, being silent, being natural, levelling with someone, paying attention, showing respect, responding to anger, responding to depression and how to ask questions contains speciļ¬c guidance in plain language.
