When freedom, the ability to be independent and do what you want, is taken away from one, it is inevitable that the elderly here feel powerless.

More than 90% of our residents here are wheelchair- or bed- bound; resulting in a great dependency on our caregivers to assist them in performing simple daily activities such as bathing and toilet-ing.

At SAS, we seek to fulfil our mission of adding years of quality life to our residents. For most of the elderly here, the nursing home is their home -- where they will spend the rest of their remaining years here.

As social interaction plays a huge part to the overall well-being of the elderly, it is vital for them to stay connected with the community, and at the same time, get to see the developments of the Society they live in. We hope that through these outings, it will encourage and empower them to lead an active lifestyle, and serve as a reminder to them that they are not forsaken by the Society.

The funds will be used towards our goal of organizing 5 outings for 70 residents over a period of 5 months. This includes, but not limited to, transport cost, admission tickets, meals and operational cost.

Should there be any balance donation left over after running this program (where expenses incurred are less than what we initially budgeted and raised), it will be used for operational expenses of the Home.

We look forward to partnering you in improving the lives of our residents here.
