TOUCH Caregivers Support (TCG) was set up to help caregivers for older people cope with the challenges of caregiving. TCG works closely with TOUCH Home Care’s (THC) trans-disciplinary team of doctors, nurses, occupational therapists, physiotherapists and care coordinators to offer a suite of home-based care and support services. TCG’s Care Line, manned by field professionals, operates from Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm (excluding Public Holidays and eve of Christmas, New Year and Chinese New Year). Caregivers can also receive customised home-based caregiver training by therapists and nurses. TCG also provides a one-stop service to modify homes to keep seniors safe. An online Facebook Caregivers Support Group was also set up to build a safe environment to provide peer support and information exchange. As an advocate for caregivers, TCG conducts talks and webinars, and shares insights on media platforms to empower and further strengthen caregivers’ mental resilience.
