“But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary; they will walk and not be faint.”
ABLE’s Respite Centre supports family caregivers through providing regular quality programmes and services for both caregivers and care recipients. ABLE’s support groups play an important role in engaging caregivers and providing respite from caregiving duties. We also host annual family caregiver retreats and appreciation events to acknowledge the individuals caring for the physically challenged. These activities are conducted to give caregivers a sense of community and to bond through shared experiences.
Respite Services for Caregivers
ABLE’s programmes and services aim to support family caregivers through a Family Centric approach. The care recipient has to be first taken care of by professionals before the family caregiver is able to consider seeking respite.
We support family caregivers and their physically challenged care recipients with centre- based programmes. These programmes are run by ABLE’s Programme and Healthcare teams and trained volunteers.
Our family caregivers experience respite through self-enrichment workshops, information talks and interest groups.
Through these programmes, the caregivers are given opportunities to discover and explore their own interests. As family caregivers interact with each other during programmes and activities, they have an opportunity to form informal support and social networks which would help boost their own resilience in the face of caregiving difficulties.
