Our Campaign Story

ends 30 Sep 2021, 11:59 PM

For many seniors, their biggest fear is a bad fall.
After that, they may be wheelchair bound for the rest of their lives.
Or need to be admitted to a nursing home for long term care.

At Fernvale community hub, we hope that with suitable exercises to strengthen their legs, they will have less fear of falling. This can be combined with doctors' consultation, dietitian advice and of course a good dose of fun to motivate them.

Your donations will be used to help in falls prevention as well as other SATA COMMHEALTH's Community programmes for the seniors and vulnerable.

About Campaign

Our Community Hub was set up in 2019 to serve the residents living in Fernvale, mainly the rental block residents. Aiming to be a one-stop centre for the residents, the hub not only provides subsidised healthcare but social and psychological support as well.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Community Hub had to put all physical social activities on hold, and regular phone calls and at times home visits were catered to care for the vulnerable residents, to ensure that they are coping well.

To continue engaging the residents, the community team continues to conduct social activities such as Group Exercise and Cooking Demo through online Zoom sessions. Objectives are to engage the elderly and help them strengthen their bones, joints and brain so that they subject to lesser risks of falls.

The Community Hub continues to raise awareness and encourage residents to get vaccinated, especially flu and pneumococcal vaccines, for added protection in addition to COVID-19 vaccinations. They are also encouraged to go for health screening, under the recommended Screen for Life (SFL) initiative.

We offer subsidised healthcare and medical boxes to rental block residents who face financial struggles.

Help us support more by donating to our cause of helping these seniors and vulnerable in the community.

Your donations will be used to fund this programme as well as other community services for the seniors and vulnerable.
