About our speaker

Josephine Koh is the Nurse Manager at TOUCH Home Care (THC) who regularly visits the homes of frail elderly and attends to their various needs. While her duties include dressing their wounds, changing their feeding tube and even counselling services, perhaps the most meaningful role she plays is in empowering her clients to live with independence and dignity in their advanced years. By teaching them to perform simple tasks such as taking their own blood pressure, she helps many vulnerable seniors rebuild their self-esteem and confidence in themselves.
