SNSA Befriending Training Slides By Dr Kinjal Doshi and Ms Stacey Henderson:
SNSA has teams of volunteers who visit stroke patients at hospitals. However, befriending services at hospitals have since been suspended due to Covid-19. Currently, SNSA conducts virtual befriending via Zoom.
Volunteers will offer a listening ear, encouragement, support and advice to stroke patients and their caregivers during their time of need. Many of our volunteers are themselves stroke survivors, and understand the feelings and concerns of those who have suffered from a stroke.
Befriending services are currently held in these hospitals:
|Ang Mo Kio-Thye Hua Kwan Hospital (AMK-THKH)||2nd Saturday of the month||9.45am to 12.00pm|
|Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH)||2nd / 4th Sundays of the month||12.00pm to 2.00pm|
|Khoo Teck Puat Hospital (KTPH)||1st / 3rd Sundays of the month||12.00pm to 2.00pm|
|Bright Vision Hospital (BVH) – Befriending||4th Wednesday of the month||3.00pm to 4.00pm|
|Bright Vision Hospital (SGH Rehab)||4th Wednesday of the month||4.00pm to 5.00pm|
|St Luke’s Hospital (SLH)||2nd Saturday of the month||9.45am to 12.00pm|
|Yishun Community Hospital (YCH)||3rd Sunday of the month||2.00pm to 4.00pm|
If you are a stroke patient in one of the above hospitals and would like support from a befriender, please contact us at 62229514 or firstname.lastname@example.org
SNSA welcomes volunteers to join us as befrienders. We also welcome stroke survivors to join our befriending services as volunteers, and share their valuable experience to encourage other stroke patients.
Interested volunteers must be a member of SNSA and are required to undergo an induction programme before they can begin volunteering.
