Launch of Jamiyah Eldercare Academy

As part of the World Health Day 2019 celebrations on Sunday 7 April at the West Coast Community Club, we launched the Jamiyah Eldercare Academy which provides courses to equip caregivers with the necessary knowledge and practical skills required to better care for seniors. Caregivers can tap on their Caregiver Training Grant to offset the course fees. Mayor of South West CDC, Ms Low Yen Ling, who was the Guest of Honour at the event says, “Our community of partners in the South West has rallied their strengths and resources to offer skills, guidance, support and encouragement to caregivers. From respite care to funding and training, our multi-pronged approach aims to address their multi-faceted needs.” For more information on the courses available at Jamiyah Eldercare Academy, please call 6776 8575 or email
