Mr Lee* was in this exact situation a few years back. Besides being blind in one eye, he also suffered from diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, thyroid and depression. Whenever he felt any unusual discomfort, he always thought the worst of his condition and would often rush down to the hospital's Accident and Emergency department. After a number of visits, the hospital referred Mr Lee's case to the Agency of Integrated Care and he joined The Salvation Army Peacehaven Day Centre to receive proper care.
Since then, Mr Lee has been going to Peacehaven Day Centre daily and his health and well-being have improved. Staff would monitor his health and ensure that he receives the required nursing care and medication. As Mr Lee is unable to clean after himself, our homecare staff also goes to his home on a weekly basis to clean his home and prevent it from reeking. With all of his daily needs met by our team of dedicated staff, Mr Lee now no longer lives in anxiety of growing old all alone.
For this Giving Week, do take a moment to help many others like Mr Lee, who are living in abject poverty and despair. Your donation can make a difference for the underprivileged - young and old, and give them hope for a better tomorrow.
