When was the last time you visited your parents or grandparents? Has it been days, months or even years?

Our schedules are constantly packed with meetings and appointments. We are always on the go and living a fast-paced life. However, we seemed to have forgotten about vulnerable groups who are living radically different lives.

Our seniors fill their time with loneliness and emptiness as they are unsure of what to do. They may even feel suffocated as they are enclosed within the four walls of their house. Mobile seniors can gain access to facilities in their neighbourhoods and interact with others. But what about the immobile seniors who require help with their mobility devices or support? What can they do to live more meaningful lives?

To ensure that we do not leave these vulnerable seniors behind, it's time for us to take action to support them. No need for expensive gifts, a simple donation can go a long way to Swing Off Loneliness at Lions Befrienders Charity Golf 2022!

100% of your contributions will go toward initiatives that will help Lions Befrienders to mitigate social isolation amongst our seniors.

Let's work together in empowering them to live active, healthy & happy lives independently in the community!

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.
