About Campaignends 29 Feb 2016, 11:59 PM
We would like to encourage the public to participate in Hong Bao Donation Drive to foster the act of GIVING and exemplify the value if CARE for our society.
At Lions Befrienders, our seniors' quality of life is of utmost importance to us. We aim to alleviate social isolation amongst our seniors, whilst empowering them to live independently as valued members of our community.
Currently, we reach out to over 5,000 seniors, and also partner with over 1,000 trained Befrienders (volunteers) and networking partners.
Your donation helps us continue running services for our seniors who are beyond 65 years old and are at risk of social isolation:
1) Befriending Services
Weekly home visit to provide seniors with psycho-emotional support and monitor their welfare and living environment to ensure they age gracefully and with dignity.
2) Community Outreach Services (SACs)
Organise activities, outings and programmes through our 7 centres to help them stay physically and mentally active while integrating them into a social network.
3) SAC (Cluster Support)
Provide case management and counselling services to seniors who are frail and require assistance for their daily activities to ensure that these seniors can age independently in their community for as long as possible.
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.
