Undeterred, Maggie made frequent visits to Mdm Tan's residence to build rapport. Half a year later, her persistence paid off, as Mdm Tan warmed up to her and they started connecting via calls and messages.
On top of caring for the elders through regular home visits/calls, our volunteers would also plan social engagement and wellness programmes, outings, birthday and festive celebrations which would bring smiles to the seniors' faces.
For ElderAid volunteers to light up our elders' lives like what Maggie does, SRC provides comprehensive training to volunteers to provide adequate care, identify needs or issues, and provide first response, and timely psychosocial support to seniors.
SRC's ElderAid service aims to reduce vulnerability while enhancing resilience amongst seniors, through bettering their lives - befriending visits/calls; activities with physical/social/mental focus; Home Monitoring and Eldercare and Community Response for Emergencies; Medical Chaperone & Transportation to Healthcare.
This Mid-Autumn Festival, spread your lantern of light and joy with the seniors under SRC's care! Funds raised in this campaign will be channeled to Be Our Red Cross Champion. (https://s.giving.sg/EAjUzgl)
