The support program will be holding monthly meetings with caregivers of those with dementia.By so doing, caregivers will be encouraged to discuss whatever problems they encounter with the caregiving situation as well as troublesome behavioural or psychological symptoms, and to proffer solutions. Not only holding regular monthly person to person meetings with the caregivers, there will be online forum where the caregivers can still use to reach out to the support group to discuss their challenges. During the meetings, the caregivers will be taught coping skills and tactics for managing difficult situations. The caregivers social networking will be facilitated through such meetings and in addition, will reduce stress experienced by the caregivers. The support program is expected to be a long lasting sustainable program which more members and volunteers will be recruited.

Thanks for your interest. I appreciate and will keep in touch with you.

Hi Brown, Once again I thank you for your comment. Yes for a start, will need to start in a small scale and will from there grow with proper planning and implementation added with hard working team and mentors.
Thanks
