O'Joy Care Services was founded in early 2004 amidst emerging trends of ageing population, by a group of social workers and professional counsellors who recognised the need for prevention and early intervention of mental health issues associated with ageing, and to promote healthy ageing among seniors. We have provided quality professional counselling and clinical case management services to over 5,600 clients since 2004.
From Sep 2013 till date, another of our flagship program - Health-Oriented Ageing (HOA) continues to flourish. Reaching out to senior residents in the Upper Boon Keng area, this community programme engages our seniors in exercises, singing, wushu, anklung and visual arts over five days a week. Such community learning opportunities enable our seniors to keep physically and mentally active, make new friends and learn new skills, defying the stereotype that age is the limit. With training, active HOA members are empowered to volunteer as facilitators for the program. This truly light up the spirit of senior for senior.
We very much depend on your support and donation to continue providing for our seniors.
Thank you for empowering us to continue serving seniors in need.
We understand that seniors have complex needs that require tailored services therefore, keeping in mind that every senior is unique, we attend to their bio-psycho-social needs through providing counselling and clinical case management services ensuring holistic care. We also provide linkages to other services when required and work closely with community partners to ensure seamless transitions. It is our desire that through our services, the seniors would be empowered to improve their mental well-being and increase their resilience to cope with life's challenges.
