LB currently serves about 6,000 seniors under our befriending and community outreach services. As a result of your giving, our seniors are able to enjoy a variety of programmes that are catered for them. The ageing population has also seen the number of seniors that LB serves, increase by 7% in the last financial year. This figure is likely to increase in the near future as our population continues to grow. As such, LB plans to reach out to more lonely seniors living in our community.

As we continue to expand on our services through the commencement of our ninth Senior Activity Centre (SAC), we need your help and support more than before. Our ninth SAC is slated to serve about 300 seniors living in the rental units, around the SAC.

The video highlights the day in the life of an SAC's staff. Our SAC(s) provide seniors with a welcoming ambience where they get to socialise and engage in meaningful activities that has been thoughtfully planned by our colleagues from the SAC(s). The conceptualisation of these activities takes time and effort as our colleagues would have to first understand our seniors' wants and needs.

Join us in this fundraising drive as we step up our efforts to fend off social isolation amongst our seniors. The funds that we raise would enable LB to sustain the services that is provided to our seniors, therefore enhancing their social support system. We look forward to your support as we strive connect with our seniors, thus enriching their lives.

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.
