About Campaignends 13 Jul 2019, 11:59 PM
With our ageing population set to rise exponentially, loneliness and a lack of purpose in life will become one of the leading causes of depression and mental health problems in elderly persons.
And it is not just the elderly living alone. Even those living with families, but unable to connect or catch up with them will feel isolated.
By engaging the elderly through daily activities with ready support from counsellors and case-workers when necessary, we can prevent loneliness from escalating into mental health issues and elderly suicide.
Please support us in caring for the mental and social well-being of elderly persons.
Remember, loneliness can affect anyone, including the old.
About the Charity
To address issues of ageing, O'Joy Care Services was founded in early 2004 by a group of social workers and professional counsellors to provide for the psychological and social welfare of elderly, and to promote healthy ageing.
O'Joy refers to "Oceans of Joy". We hope to bring oceans of joy to all we serve.
We provide a safe environment where our professional counsellors can counsel the elderly, or any individuals who have issues with an elderly regarding issues such as relationship issues, grief and loss, and caregiver stress.
These services, which are in English, Mandarin, Malay, and local dialects, are provided at our centre or in the comforts of their homes.
Only with proper help and intervention can we help our clients overcome such difficulties before it spirals into bigger problems that may cause them to be displaced from their family, home or even themselves.
We very much depend on your support and donation to continue providing for our elderly.
Thank you for empowering us to continue serving elderly persons in need.
