Some have lost their livelihood. Seniors become socially isolated. Many experience anger, anxiety, depressed mood, helplessness, fear and panic, trauma and secondary trauma, as they have nothing to do at home but watch the news and see the situation unfold and devolve. Conflicts increase between family members who do not get along. There is heightened risk of family violence and abuse. Social issues are surfacing.

Now more than ever before, it is vitally important for us to take care of the mental health of Singaporeans. The virus does not only impact the health of infected patients, but inflicts an invisible psychological harm to the wider community.

O'Joy counsellors are counselling vulnerable Singaporeans over the phone and online to provide comfort and relief during these unprecedented times, helping them to cope with their emotions.

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 home. 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.
