Mdm Ho is a senior in her 80s who stays alone in a 3 room flat. Her only daughter lives in America and she has no other relatives to turn to for help. She struggles to remember her way back to her flat. Because of that, she doesn't venture out much nor does she know many people in the neighbourhood.
Miro is a shy 18 year old guy who shuts himself up in his room the whole day, surfing the internet. He is anxious about many things and has entertained thoughts of self harm and even suicide when he feels overwhelmed by life. He has dreams and hopes of pursuing his interest in Computer Studies.
Poor health, frailty and mental illness isolate affected persons from the community.
Studies have found that seniors living alone are twice as likely as their peers to develop depressive symptoms.
In 2017, the number of seniors aged 60 and above who took their own lives peaked at 129, social disconnect was cited as a contributing factor.
