The COVID-19 Circuit Breaker has exacerbated the feelings of social isolation amongst at-risk seniors. Lions Befrienders has witnessed 4 attempted suicides. We noted the gradual decline in the emotional and mental health of seniors during these periods through our regular twice a week check-in calls.

Our seniors longed for social interaction and dedicated attention from our staff. Since the start of the Post Circuit Breaker Phase 1 & 2, our seniors are so excited to be able to visit the Senior Activity Centres again. Due to strict measures, we are limiting to 20 seniors per day per SAC. We expect the number of seniors to visit SACs to increase in Phase 3. Other times, they are at home, lonely again.

Would you show your care and love for these frail and at-risk Ah Gong Ah Ma, who have no one by their side?

How about making your special day memorable and meaningful? Instead of receiving extravagant gifts, you can rally your friends to help 6,000 lonely at-risk Ah Gong Ah Ma! Choose one of the following special days and start fundraising 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.
