As a parent, we always do our best to cultivate a loving heart in our children. The ability to be able to think in someone’s shoe, deeply empathizing and connecting with others not only important in guaranteeing a harmony relationship in family and workplace, but also enables one to live his or her life with gratitude.

We were excited to attend this not-to-be-missed first Eldercare Exhibition & Conference Asia (ELDEX). From customized fashion apparels by Will & Well, home-use cardiac and auto body temperature monitoring systems by New Japan Radio Co., Ltd, innovative vibration machines from BodyGreen to sanitary products, the exhibition showcased a variety of services and products which are catering for the eldercare sector. We are looking forward to attend the next ELDEX.
A picture is worth a thousand words. The definitions of exclusion, segregation, integration and inclusion are well explained here.
The answer is No. Different countries use different sign languages. Some countries even have multiple sign languages. Sign language is not just the hand and body movements but also includes facial expressions.
We were glad to be part of the volunteers assisting children with special needs to tour around Garden By The Bay. We felt that we have gained more than what we have rendered. We have learned throughout the journey from social workers, transportation service providers and children. We were thankful to be offered the opportunity to contribute back to the society.
