“Doctor, We Are Ready For Home”
This book serves as an important guide for many home caregivers. For some, bringing their loved ones home from a medical institution, such as hospital, presents both joy as well as a daunting challenge, especially when they do not feel adequately trained or equipped to provide the appropriate care.

Some of the essential topics discussed are:
- Overview of the healthcare system in Singapore
- Sources of help and support available, ranging from the government to voluntary welfare schemes
- Costs and practical considerations such as meals for the lonely elderly, medical subsides, etc.
- How to train caregivers with practical skills
- Caregivers’ plans
