Loneliness and lack of purpose in life are possible causes of depression and mental health problems in elderly persons. Seniors living alone are twice more likely to develop depressive symptoms.

Loneliness does not just affect the elderly living alone. Even those living with families, but unable to connect with them may feel isolated.

Depression can persist for many years and greatly affect the quality of life of an elderly and their caregivers. If left untreated, it may lead to heart diseases and other physical problems. Older persons with depression are also more likely to develop dementia.

We are here to help. O'Joy is a social service organisation that fills a need where we help elderly and their families/caregivers deal with mental health issues and concerns.

Your gift will go towards services and programmes that enable healthy ageing for more seniors.

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.
