​“I have been a medical social worker for six years. The most memorable experience was a home visit for an elderly patient who had just been discharged from the hospital.   When the nurse and I arrived at her home, we saw how her son, who was her main caregiver, was caring for her. We were very moved by his dedication and commitment.

Knowing that patients and their caregivers are coping better after our intervention and help, both financially or emotionally, is very fulfilling.   I enjoy meeting people from all walks of life and interacting with them.   Each patient case has its own story and holds valuable life lessons.   I reflect on these in my daily life to grow personally and professionally.   Through them, I’ve also learnt that one’s resilience can help overcome the greatest difficulties.”
