SINGAPORE: SATA CommHealth, formerly known as the Singapore Anti—Tuberculosis Association, has launched a new home care service for the community.
The service was launched as part of the organisation’s 65th Anniversary celebrations.
It will reach out to those who are homebound and have difficulty performing daily activities.
The service will also be made available to the needy at a discount.
Acting Minister for Community Development, Youth and Sports, Chan Chun Sing said SATA is an example of how the social service sector needs to continue to find new areas to contribute to society.
Mr Chan said: "There is much we need to do for the eldercare sector. We need to develop new models of services for the elders. We need to build new community care facilities for the elders and most importantly. We need people to come forward to serve these emerging needs."
