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 the 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 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 (20 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 will be entitled to 250% tax deduction.
