About Us

Established in 1995, LB has more than 25 years of experience in befriending and caring for seniors in order for them to age in place in the community. Over the years, LB strives to address the varied needs of more than 86,000 seniors by adopting a senior-centric approach in its eldercare services. Leveraging on the support of some 1,000 regular volunteers, we actively engage more than 6,000 at-risk seniors via a spectrum of integrated eldercare service from preventive to intervention through comprehensive programmes, including social, emotional, mental and physical, to improve their quality of life.

Amid the challenges in the eldercare landscape, LB undertakes constant review and adjustment to its programmes and services. Under our Community Outreach arm, we currently operate 10 Senior Activity Centres, 3 Cluster Support, 2 Senior Group Homes and Home Personal Care services. Our Befriending arm extends island-wide befriending services to socially isolated seniors. For its exemplary disclosure and corporate governance practices, LB was conferred the Charity Transparency Award by the Charity Council in 2016 and 2017.

Our Programmes

Befriending Services

Our island-wide befriending services reaches out to seniors who are at risk of social isolation. Trained befrienders (volunteers) provide social and psycho-emotional support to befriendees (seniors) through weekly home visits. Seniors aged 65 years old and above with limited or no family support are eligible for the service at no charge. The aim is to help them age in place within the community and alleviate them from loneliness and social isolation.

Community Outreach Services
(Senior Activity Centres)

We believe in facilitating the integration of lonely seniors within their neighbourhoods so that they may age in place with grace and dignity. We manage six Senior Activity Centres (SACs) that provide a wide array of meaningful activities and courses free-of-charge or at heavily subsidised rates to seniors.

(Cluster Support)

The Cluster Support is a step-up of service for vulnerable seniors with no or weak family support, so that they can age-in-place within the community for as long as possible. Each SAC Cluster Support supports up to five SACs within their designated service boundaries. They help to closely monitor the well-being of seniors from these identified service boundaries through collaborations with social service agencies and the help of Caring Assistance from Neighbours (CAN) carers. We also refer seniors to relevant social service agencies where necessary.
