When 85-year-old Mdm Song Ah Thai went for her right hip replacement surgery due to Osteoarthritis, she was worried about her condition and suffered from anxiety, depression and sleepless nights.

Due to her mobility constraints, she received help from TOUCH Home Care in having her meals delivered at her doorstep, having her home cleaned, being accompanied for medical appointments, and receiving home therapy to strengthen her muscles.

When she could finally step out of her home, she met and connected with many other resident befrienders at [email protected] 433. Through engaging in activities and learning together, Mdm Song was able to make many supportive friends.

“I am grateful to TOUCH for giving me a chance to rediscover myself, learn new things and engage in meaningful activities with others. I am very happy!” said Mdm Song.

During the pandemic, Mdm Song was hospitalised due to dizziness. After her discharge, she continued with her therapy sessions at the Day Rehabilitation Centre to improve her balance and mobility. Her neighbours and friends encouraged and supported her whenever she felt anxious. Mdm Song is now more resilient and recovering well.

As we continue to battle the pandemic, we are doing everything we can to sustain daily operations and continue to provide the much needed services to those under our care.

Our priority is on adapting and adjusting to meet the needs of the people we serve, but we need your help.
