As the demand of Eldercare is increasing in Singapore and around the world, to meet up the situation, more and more skilled people are required to fill up the gap. Thus, iCare Life has teamed up with VWOs like Daughters of Tomorrow and Homage to fulfill the need of increasing Eldercare Manpower by skilling low income women in Singapore.
Although there is an interest in Eldercare jobs, awareness on importance of training's is missing. This is where iCare Life and its associates are trying to draw attention on.
