Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Oct 2021, 11:59 PM

SATA CommHealth Homecare Services was established to support Singapore's aging population with the objective of improving the quality of life for Singapore's needy and physically challenged elderly. It is just what you need if your loved one is unfortunately homebound, bedridden and needs medical nursing care.

To care for those who once cared for us is one of the highest honours. Home care enables the family to be a larger part of your loved ones' care plan. This campaign is to help those who need the homecare services by SATA CommHealth and to prevent emergency illness to strike.

Your donations will be used to fund this programme as well as other 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.
