Family caregivers…

Their needs are often unheeded

Their sacrifices are often unnoticed

Their health issues are often neglected

Their daily routines are often altered

Their mental health is often shattered

Their sorrows are often unheard

Their leisure is often repealed

Their wishes are often overruled

Their vocations are often declined

Their finances are often limited

Family caregivers…

Their hearts are often brimming with sorrow

Their eyes are often filled with tears

Their shoulders are often weighed down with responsibilities

Their minds are often distracted with ongoing issues

Their hands are often extended to ask for help….

Let's make some efforts to meet their needs

Let's make some efforts to listen to their unvoiced worries

Let's make some efforts to empathise and understand their situation

Let's make some efforts to notice their sacrifices

Let's make some efforts to look after their health issues

Let's make some efforts to chalk out daily routines

Let's make some efforts to enhance their mental health

Let's make some efforts to listen to their sorrows

Let's make some efforts to get them back their leisure

Let's make some efforts to fulfil their wishes

Let's make some efforts to help them to get back to their vocation

Let's make some efforts to address their financial concerns

Let's make some efforts to care for the carers.

Their role in….

PdwCI treatment commitment

PdwCI functioning

PdwCI recovery

PdwCI well-being

PdwCI reintegration

is always supreme….

Financial support and sponsorship
