Support Groups

When you seek medical help at KKH, you know you’re not alone. We’ve set up several support groups for our patients and their families.

So you know that there are others like you whom you can share your fears and frustrations, hopes and happiness with.

Menopause Interest Group “Dynamite Daisies”

This interest group aims to promote awareness of general women’s health and support for women undergoing menopause transitions. Together with its panel of medical specialists, the group provides a series of educational talks, events and activities related to women’s health.

It is a platform for women to share their menopausal transition experiences and tips to overcome the symptoms. Members of the interest group meet every three to four months.

This interest group is led by Family Medicine Advanced Practice Nurse Chua Mei Tuan and strongly supported by the Family Medicine Service team.

Neonatology Parent Support Group

Managed by doctors and nurses from the Department of Neonatology, the support group aims to help parents with premature babies cope better.

Monthly sharing sessions among parents of current Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) babies and parents of ex-NICU babies are organised for members to draw support from one another.

Some other activities include a special educational programme for parents of low birth weight infants to prepare them for their babies' discharge, and home care visits for babies with special needs e.g. home oxygen therapy.

Children’s Diabetes Support Group

Your child was diagnosed with diabetes and your world has been turned upside down. Where do you go from here? How do you handle the responsibility? How do you help your child live life to the fullest?

Diabetes often redefines the lives of the children and their families, impacting every aspect of their lives. New roles and responsibilities are placed on the family and changes made to cope with the condition.

The support group provides children with diabetes and their families a platform for mutual support and interaction. It offers families the opportunity to meet and share their experiences with each other.

Members of the support group meet every three to four months – usually during the school holidays – for informal get-togethers and continuing education, conducted by the Diabetes Multi-disciplinary Team.

This support group is headed by Diabetes Nurse Joyce Lim and strongly supported by the team. For further enquiries, feel free to call
