Our Campaign Story

ends 14 Dec 2021, 11:59 PM

Many seniors have mobility issues and are mostly confined in their homes. They need more support than ever during the pandemic - many have mental health issues from isolation.

Homecare nurses go to their homes to help them. Dressing their wounds, changing their feeding tubes and help teach their caregivers how to bath and take care of them.

Seniors are at high risk of becoming critically ill if they are not vaccinated. Rain or shine, our Mobile and Home Vaccination Teams have been going around Singapore to give covid-19 vaccinations to them. Booster shots will also help them.

Seniors above 60 who are not vaccinated, as well as those who are 80 and above who are vaccinated are at high risk.

Your donations will be used to fund our homecare programme as well as other SATA CommHealth's programmes for the needy and seniors.

About Campaign

71-year-old Mdm Tan suffers from poor mobility due to chronic legs swelling and cellulitis. Hence, she is dependent on her 78-year-old husband, Mr Chong, as the primary caregiver for her day-to-day needs.
However, the loving couple soon found themselves struggling financially as Mdm Tan's medical care needs increased, further worsened by her husband's retrenchment. Things took a positive turn for Mdm Tan and her husband with SATA CommHealth Homecare Nursing Services.
In Singapore's ageing society, caring for a vulnerable elderly like Mdm Tan may become a reality for many people. But what happens when the caregivers themselves, like Mr Chong, are getting older and frailer themselves? Our aged loved ones would ideally prefer to be cared for in the comfort of their own homes. However, the increasingly complex care needs of our seniors and shrinking families must be balanced against the needs and well-being of caregivers.
SATA CommHealth Homecare Services are increasingly vital necessities that provide a respite for caregivers. It provides them with the pillar of support for them to lean on in trying times, to stay resilient and ensure a more sustainable manner of care for the needs of their ageing loved ones.
Your donations will be used to fund this programme as well as other programmes for the needy and seniors.

We thank Falcon Media for their kind contribution in dedicating 1 free mth of OOH media airtime at Sim Lim Tower & Fortune Centre to help us drive donations.
