You can help vulnerable elderly overcome the challenges of ageing.
WHAT ARE THE CHALLENGES OF AGEING?
Functional decline, memory decline, empty nest syndrome, death of a spouse or friends, loss of identity and purpose in life, social isolation - all of which may lead to depression, anxiety and suicide for elderly.

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.
