SGH Neurocare Support Groups

Epilepsy Support Group

I may have epilepsy, but epilepsy does not have ME

Epilepsy is a chronic neurological condition that causes sudden, uncontrollable electrical surges in the brain. These brief interruptions in the brain activities causes periods of altered awareness, known as seizures whose nature and intensity vary from person to person. Epilepsy can impact one's lives in many ways. People with epilepsy often have the anticipated concern of when the next seizure may occur, the potential injury they may sustain & the stigma they may face. Support groups bring people with similar issues together to share on their experiences, learn from one another, and supporting one another in the journey. The sessions aim to provide support and empower participants to live beyond the challenges of having epilepsy.

The support group collaborates and works closely the Singapore Epilepsy Foundation. For more information on various support group activities: please log onto:

The group meet bimonthly on 1st Fridays of odd months.

Dementia Support Group

Dementia support group provides a platform for sharing of personal experiences and social meetings for you and your caregivers for the journey of living with dementia. Activities provided by multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals on exercise, cognitive skills, talk and discussion. Members will also get to participate in mind and body fitness to help in delaying the progression of memory decline. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a specific form of psychotherapy. It aims to help people to change how they think ('cognitive') and what they do ('behaviour'). These changes can help people with dementia and the caregivers to feel and cope better with their daily lives.

The group meets every first Thursday of the month from 11.00 am to 1.00 pm.

Parkinson Support Group

Parkinson’s disease is a life changing illness that affects many aspects of the person’s life. Some changes such as tremors and rigidity have observable qualities; however, other changes can only be described by the person with Parkinson’s disease. Support groups let you the patient, know that you are not alone and can provide you with an opportunity to share with others any information on individual experiences that you have. Members will also listen to what you have to say. Support groups can help you and your caregivers mentally and physically with group exercises, sharing of personal experiences and social meetings.

The support group collaborates and works closely with the Parkinson Society Singapore. Formerly known as Parkinson’s Disease Society (Singapore).

The Parkinson’s Centre, established by the society and located at the void deck of Block 191, Bishan Street 13; offers a wide range of therapeutic programme and activities.
