Our vision is of an inclusive society for all ages that optimises opportunities in longevity.
Our mission is to advance a positive transformation of the ageing experience, we seek constructive mindset and systemic change through innovation and advocacy in community-based eldercare, training and education, policy relevant research and collaboration.
We are motivated by the spirit of innovation to find ways to improve the quality of life of older persons.
In the pursuit of excellence, we set high professional standards for ourselves and for the services we provide. As a catalyst for constructive change, we actively promote scholarly research on ageing issues, invite distinguished scholars to share their expertise, and support policy planners through dialogue and feedback.
The Tsao Foundation strives to transform the ageing experience by being a catalyst for constructive systemic and mindset change. This mission is undertaken through three synergistic core initiatives:
Hua Mei Centre for Successful Ageing which enables ageing-in-place by pioneering replicable, community based, integrated health and psychosocial age care service models grounded in person-centered principles;
Hua Mei Training Academy, dedicated to capacity building in professional community-based age care, informal and family caregiving, as well as personal development and community action in successful ageing through providing practitioner-driven training, education and consultancy services;
International Longevity Centre Singapore which supports policy, practice, advocacy and community development through initiating high impact research and collaborative platforms in population ageing issues and related action.
Established in 1993, the Tsao Foundation is a Singapore-registered charity with IPC (Institute of Public Character) status, engaged in the global response to longevity.
