Elderly folk living with their families may be surrounded by people but they can still feel socially isolated. ST 27 Aug 2021.


Staying disconnected from society and loved ones for a long period of time has a negative impact on mental health, especially in seniors. Loneliness is a silent killer and may result in physical health deterioration.

Knowing that someone cares with a simple call, a visit to their home or a hello warms the hearts of seniors, especially those who live alone.

The main objective for UNLONELY MOVEMENT is to encourage all of us to CONNECT with our grandparents, parents, loved ones, or even seniors who has no one.

Join us on 21 October 2022 for UNLONLEY MOVEMENT LAUNCH, between 10am and 11am, it is an Action Day where we encourage everyone to Connect and make it a priceless moment!

With your support, our seniors can live a happy, healthy, active, and independent life in the community. Together, we can mitigate social isolation amongst seniors.

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.
