HCA Hospice Care has been appointed by the National Council of Social Services (NCSS) to be the national agency providing palliative caregivers training in Singapore.
The 5-hour Palliative Caregivers Training equips caregivers with the skills and knowledge to look after their loved ones, and the holistic understanding about the needs of palliative care patients.
It is open to patients’ families and caregivers from all hospices and palliative care units, as well as anyone who is looking after patients at home.
If you or your family members would like to attend the training, you can either:

Training sessions are conducted in English. Participants need only pay $10 for a comprehensive guidebook and light refreshments.
The remaining cost of the training programme will be claimed by HCA directly from the Agency for Integrated Care’s Caregiver Training Grant.
