Can we do that, really?
Age brings changes to all of us: Hormonal changes, age-related afflictions, empty nest syndrome or depression stemming from a loss of purpose or the death of a spouse. We can’t avoid growing old, but we don’t want to be reduced to a shadow of our former selves. Imagine the mental and psychological impact that will have on any one of us. If we look within our family, we may have seen that in our grandparents or parents, and it is always heart breaking.
Helping the aged stay fit mentally and physically is a key concern. Local support systems such as O’Joy’s community-centred programme and counselling services can provide the care and support for older persons to experience their ageing process not as a burden, but as a golden phase of their lives to be savoured.
Help senior citizens prepare their minds and hearts to stay young and begin a new chapter in their lives.
About the Charity
We are a Voluntary Welfare Organisation that provides counselling services for elderly persons and Community Mental Health intervention programme. With one of the highest ageing population in the world, a significant portion of elderly persons suffer from loneliness, depression and low quality of life. We strive to improve the quality of life of such elderly persons and their family members by helping them overcome their emotional, psychological and social difficulties. Feelings of loneliness and helplessness is the leading cause of depression, causing Singapore's elderly suicide to be at an all-time-high in 2017. We should not focus only on treating problems. Much more can be done to prevent and intervene potential issues before it escalates. Only with proper help and intervention can we help them overcome such difficulties before it spirals into bigger problems that may cause them to be displaced from their family, home or even themselves. We very much depend on your support and donation to continue providing for our beneficiaries. Thank you for empowering us to continue serving elderly persons in need.
