About Campaign

As the COVID-19 pandemic sweeps across the world, the sense of uncertainty and anxiety grows within us. For some, the fear of getting infection may sometimes spiral into an unrealistic paranoia, affecting our mental health.

Suspension of senior-centric activities means our seniors are missing their daily exercises and social interaction. Staying at home more to minimise chances of infection result in more social isolation. Many of our seniors are experiencing symptoms of anxiety and depression.

Since DORSCON Orange, O'Joy counsellors are using counselling over the phone and/or via video call to provide comfort and relief to our clients and seniors during this challenging time, helping them manage their emotions, fears and anxiety.

Good mental health forms psychological defence in our total defence. Please help us to provide good mental support so we can tide over this crisis together.

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay united.

About the Charity

O'Joy Care Services was awarded the Charity Transparency Awards and Charity Governance Awards with Special Commendation for Operational Efficiency in 2019.

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.
