We understand that being diagnosed with a chronic illness can be stressful for you and your family. To help you manage and understand your condition, our hospital has set up a counselling and support service for several illnesses.
Thanks to more early recognition and better treatment options, breast cancer survival rates are constantly improving. It is important to us to accompany and support these patients in order to reduce suffering and improve the quality of life during and after their treatment.
The Breast Care Support Group aims to reach out to breast cancer patients who have been newly diagnosed with the condition and are currently undergoing treatment.
We hope that through various sharing by our multidisciplinary team (medical social workers, breast care nurses, physiotherapist, psychologist, dietitian and pharmacist) and support from group members, the journey breast cancer patients go through, can be more positive and enriching.

The stroke self-management program aims to enhance the quality of life for stroke survivors by helping them build their confidence and ability to take charge of their own health. This is achieved through three ways:
Participants will learn about stroke, its symptoms, impact on both mind and body, and how to identify its risk factors.
Participants are equipped with tools and practical advice on how to monitor their own physical health and manage their emotions. This includes blood pressure monitoring, coping skills, information on alternative therapies, community resources and nutrition.
Armed with new knowledge and skills facilitated through group discussions and sharing, participants are empowered when they are able to take active steps to manage their own health. This helps them to gain a better understanding of stroke, and build their self-confidence in managing it, thus leading to a better quality of life.
