Star PALS are looking for volunteers to give respite to families with sick kids
Star PALS is a service by HCA Hospice care that provide paediatric palliative care services to children. They are the only organisation in Singapore providing multidisciplinary teams of doctors, nurses, social workers and counsellors to improve the quality of life for children with life threatening or life limiting conditions, in the comfort of their homes.
They are looking for volunteers to work as Medi Minders to children under their care, ideally for at least 2 days a month. Medi Minders provide families with a few hours of respite to care for other children in the family, to run errands or to simply take a break.
If you are interested in volunteering, please visit www.starpals.sg/services/medi-minders where there is a simple form for prospective volunteers to complete. You can also contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
