Parkinson’s Disease Community Care Programme


Singapore General Hospital

The pilot programme provides holistic care in the community for patients with moderate to advanced Parkinson's Disease and their caregivers, to improve their wellbeing and reduce the need for hospitalisation. Care is provided by trained Community Nurses from Singapore General Hospital, supported by a multidisciplinary care team.

This service is provided at Community Nurse Posts, conveniently located at Senior Activity Centres, or in patients’ homes, if they are not able to visit the Posts. This community-based support aims to complement the scheduled hospital visits and provide support within the community for sudden changes in the patients' condition.
