Do you know how they suffered hardships and made sacrifices for you?
As their children, we tend to be SO BUSY with our commitments, and we often FORGOT they are getting older each day.
Sadly, most of us FORGET everything that we received from our parents or grandparents. Without them, we couldn't even get an education and what we've achieved in life today.
In Singapore, many seniors are left alone by their families. At Lions Befrienders, our goal is to reach out to these socially isolated and lonely seniors, to provide them with holistic care needed to live a healthy, active and happy life in the community.
Treasure the Forgotten Seniors Today! Let's take care of their essential needs so that they can live in their golden years of happiness.
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.
