Fundamentals of Eldercare EDM

Are you or your domestic helper caring for an elderly aged 65 and above or looking after a loved one who has a disability certified by a doctor?

The Agency for Integrated Care (AIC) provides family caregivers like you a Caregivers Training Grant (CTG) of $200 per year! The CTG is renewed in April, meaning your CTG will be topped up to $200 in April every year!

Put your CTG to good use by joining us for The Fundamentals of Eldercare training, where you get to equip yourself with the essential knowledge and skills to care for the elderly. You will also learn practical skills like self-care through proper diet, exercise, rest, etc. Through classroom participation, you are also able to form a social support network with other caregivers.
