Patient Support

Throughout their time here, KDF ensures that our patients are able to receive support in various forms, including support for their mental wellbeing. Our patient support group, Renal Friends, was initiated in 1997 by KDF’s Medical Director, Dr Lina Choong, to cater to the emotional and psychological needs of dialysis patients and their families.

Their activities include:

  • Befriending kidney patients in distress
  • Organising social activities
  • Organising educational talks and seminars

With these activities, the group aims to enhance interaction, mutual sharing and support, and increase knowledge and awareness of kidney disease amongst patients and their families.

Over the past few years, Renal Friends has organised trips to the following places of interest:

  • Peranakan Museum (2015)
  • Singapore Flyer (2016)
  • Singapore River Cruise (2017)
  • Johor Bahru (2017)
  • Singapore Zoological Gardens (2017)
  • Qian Hu Fish Farm (2018)
  • S.E.A. Aquarium (2018)
