Never have we experienced this solitary state: lockdown, safe management measure, quarantine, self-isolation.

This prolonged COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted our lifestyles. Many are facing mental health issues including fear, anxiety, social isolation, depression, and the at-risk seniors are not spared.

While we can use technology to continue working remotely and attending virtual meetings, however, it cannot replace social connections.

With recent heightened cases and death among seniors, seniors are facing further social isolation as are strongly encouraged to stay at home.

From 15 Nov to 17 Dec, Amgen Cares target to raise $4500 to show that Amgen Cares4Seniors, and they are not forgotten. Please join us today to bring smiles to these vulnerable seniors during this year end festive season.

Your contributions will allow us to buy essential items needed by these seniors. Every contribution you make is a step closer to touch the hearts of the seniors to lead happier lives in the community!

Care and support vulnerable seniors today!

About the Charity

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.
