At 71 years old, an unemployed Mr Seow is sustaining his living expenses and medical health needs with very little savings.

After being discharged from a community hospital, he has been staying in Lions Befrienders Senior Group Home for the last 2 years.

In the past, he had lived with his friends. A big part of his life was spent alone as he was disconnected with family members for over 30 years.

Seniors are not afraid to die, but their biggest worry is dying alone without people knowing, while their body rot at home. The lack of support and care for lonely seniors is a rising concern.

Help reduce seniors' biggest fear of being alone, especially at their last phase of their life today!

Your contributions will go towards programmes and services to restore and improve the lives of vulnerable seniors, in their mental, emotional, physical and social health.

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 Active Ageing 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.
