They say age is just a number; that it’s all in the mind and about being young at heart.

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

O'Joy Care Services was awarded the Charity Transparency Awards and Charity Governance Awards with Special Commendation for Operational Efficiency in 2019.

O'Joy Care Services was founded in early 2004 amidst emerging trends of ageing population, by a group of social workers and professional counsellors who recognised the need for prevention and early intervention of mental health issues associated with ageing, and to promote healthy ageing among seniors. We have provided quality professional counselling and clinical case management services to over 5,600 clients since 2004.

From Sep 2013 till date, another of our flagship program - Health-Oriented Ageing (HOA) continues to flourish. Reaching out to senior residents in the Upper Boon Keng area, this community programme engages our seniors in exercises, singing, wushu, anklung and visual arts over five days a week. Such community learning opportunities enable our seniors to keep physically and mentally active, make new friends and learn new skills, defying the stereotype that age is the limit. With training, active HOA members are empowered to volunteer as facilitators for the program. This truly light up the spirit of senior for senior.

We very much depend on your support and donation to continue providing for our seniors.

Thank you for empowering us to continue serving seniors in need.
