Integrated social service hub in Chong Pang to provide leisure and assistance for elderly
Elderly residents in the Chong Pang ward can now make use of a one-stop social service provider - whether they're looking for leisure activities or financial help.
The integrated Social Service Hub, the first of its kind, is a collaboration between Thye Hua Kwan Moral Charities and the area's grassroots leaders and community.
Elderly residents can choose from a variety of activities at the Social Service Hub - from doing light exercises to playing games.
The centre also provides medical services and step down medical care.
Thye Hua Kwan Moral Charities said the integrated social hub could be the solution to 'ageing in place', where elderly Singaporeans can take part in activities when they're healthy and seek help when the need arises.
If successful, it hopes this model can be replicated in other parts of Singapore.
