About Campaignends 30 Sep 2022, 11:59 PM
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.
We are here to help. O'Joy provides counselling and case management for vulnerable elderly and their families/caregivers to help them deal with issues related to ageing, mental health or dementia.
Your gift will go towards services and programmes that enable healthy ageing for more seniors. With dollar-for-dollar matching from Tote Board Enhanced Fund Raising program, your kindness will go a long way.
About the Charity
O'Joy Limited is a non-profit charity that provides psychosocial care to enhance the mental wellbeing of vulnerable seniors and adults.
Amidst the emerging trends of an ageing population in 2004, O'Joy opened its doors and started serving the psychosocial needs of our elderly population via counselling and social work.
in recent years, we noticed the increasing demands for mental health services for young to middle-aged adults. O'Joy acted to fill this gap by starting our BEACON program in 2020. BEACON provides counselling therapy to adults (18 to 49 years old), facing mental health challenges. This was especially timely during the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
O'Joy means Oceans of Joy. We hope to bring joy and hope to those we serve through our programmes and services.
O'Joy Limited is a registered charity with IPC status. Your donations are entitled to 250% tax deduction.
