Befriending Services

SNSA has teams of volunteers who visit stroke patients at hospitals. Volunteers will offer a listening ear, encouragement, support and advice to stroke patients and their caregivers during their time of need. Many of our volunteers are themselves stroke survivors, and understand the feelings and concerns of those who have suffered from a stroke.

Befriending services are currently held in these hospitals:

Hospital Day Time
Ang Mo Kio-Thye Hua Kwan Hospital (AMK-THKH) 3rd Saturday of the month 9.45am to 12pm
Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH) 2nd / 4th Sundays of the month 12 to 2pm
Khoo Teck Puat Hospital (KTPH) 1st / 3rd Sundays of the month 12 to 2pm
Bright Vision Hospital (BVH) Once a month 3.30 to 4.30pm
St Luke’s Hospital (SLH) 2nd Saturday of the month 9.45am to 12pm

Join Us as a Befriender

SNSA welcomes volunteers to join us as befrienders. We also welcome stroke survivors to join our befriending services as volunteers, and share their valuable experience to encourage other stroke patients.

Interested volunteers must be a member of SNSA and are required to undergo an induction programme before they can begin volunteering.
