Healthy Ever After: Don’t Miss The Fairytale-Themed Family Carnival By Gleneagles Hospital Singapore
Hospitals can be a scary place for many. It is a place usually associated with fear or pain. I know this first-hand after a major heart surgery when I was 8.
What really helped my family and I during this time was the hospital service and care that was provided to us during my stay there. I remember the doctors and nurses being warm, kind and reassuring.
I am now healthy and strong because of the impeccable care I received back then. My impression of hospitals has since changed from a place full of fear and anxiety to one that is filled with hope.
That is why when Gleneagles Hospital organised a 60th anniversary carnival named “Healthy Ever After”, it immediately caught my attention.
Through this fairytale-themed carnival with a medical twist, children can know that the hospital may not be so scary after all, and they get to gain some medical knowledge while having fun at the same time!
