Medi Minders

Medi Minders is a respite care service, provided to the families of our young patients cared for under our Star PALS (Paediatric Advanced Life Support) programme. It provides parents and caregivers a few hours of respite, to care for other children in the family, run errands or simply to take a breather and to relieve them from the daily burden of caregiving.
Medi Minder volunteers are specially trained to take care of children and young adults, with complex nursing care needs. Some of the tasks that our Medi Minders are trained to carry out include:

Basic nursing care, such as tube feeding or suctioning​

Administering medication

Transferring the patient​

Bathing and dressing the patient / changing of diapers​

Providing adult supervision​

Companionship

Due to the specialised nature of the role, Medi Minder volunteers are expected to commit to at least 8 hours a month and undergo the necessary training before deployment. All Medi Minder volunteer applications will also be subject to a stringent screening process, as volunteers will be working with vulnerable children. More information can be found in this factsheet.
