Helping The Elderly In Need
About Campaignends 31 Dec 2017, 11:59 PM
As we busy ourselves with our daily lives, it is very easy to forget the needy elderly in our community.
Many of the elderly patients under TTSH Community Fund's Helping ElderLy Patients (HELP) Programme have no income, little savings and limited family support. Our Programme steps in to support them when all other avenues have been exhausted, to help maintain their health and increase their quality of life.
The Programme supports needy elderly patients with their out-of-pocket medical needs: diapers, wound dressings, nutrition, interim-dialysis, mobility aids, vision and hearing problems, etc.
Let's show needy elderly patients some care and warmth. In this increasingly tough economic climate, any donation, large or small, will make a difference to their lives. All donations will go towards the HELP Programme under TTSH Community Fund.
On behalf of our needy patients and their families, we thank you for your kind support.

1844. Merchant Tan Tock Seng, together with a group of friends donated a sum of 7000 Spanish dollars to build the Paupers' Hospital for the poor sick in the community. In keeping with this Legacy of Giving, Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH) set up the TTSH Community Fund in August 1995 to improve the quality of life of our less fortunate patients. Today, the Fund runs over 100 patient-centred programs, disbursing more than $2 million each year for its activities. We support over 2,500 needy patient cases, especially the elderly and those who fall between the gaps of the system, and are unable to receive help from traditional charitable agencies. Our charity is unique in that it centres on helping those who cannot or do not receive adequate or timely help in the community. It provides timely help to needy patients and their families with their out-of-pocket medical expenses, vis a vis, non-standard medication, costly breathing equipment so that patients can go home, mobility aids, nutrition and home-based community rehabilitation programmes and many other areas of needs.
