We believe that seniors deserve to experience value, respect and dignity as they age in their community.

Therefore, we seek to work with vulnerable seniors aged above 55 years old who are experiencing some form of isolation socially or emotionally or have limited access to resources in areas of social support, financial, medical or housing.

We seek to extend care to seniors in the community through ensuring their access to resources which are necessary for their well being and functioning.

We also seek to engage them through meaningful activities in their community and provide platforms to build support networks.
 
Our Programmes
 
Care Corner Social Day Care for the Elderly ['SDC']
Care Corner SDC supports the needs of busy families who are unable to care for their elderly family members while they are at work. Through a warm, caring and safe home-like environment, we keep our seniors mentally, physically and socially healthy. Individual care plans are created for our seniors, to actively engage them through planned activities. We also provide nutritious meals for them.

Care Corner Seniors Activity Centres ['SAC's]
Care Corner's five SACs [i.e. SAC(TP5), SAC(TP62B), SAC(TP106), SAC(TP149) and SAC(TP170)] function as community-based drop-in centres, offering a series of holistic eldercare programmes which are designed based on six dimensions of wellness, to keep the elderly physically, emotionally, socially, spiritually, vocational, and intellectually engaged.

SAC(TP106) was previously operated as the elderly outreach programme "Care Express" and currently has no premises.

Care Corner Cluster Support @ Toa Payoh & Woodlands ['CS']
Cluster Support was launched in Toa Payoh estate in October 2013 to provide quality, client-centric care for vulnerable seniors with limited family support. We network with other service providers and local community partners to develop the necessary support network for seniors-in-need. This enhances the socio-emotional and healthcare needs of vulnerable elderly who may require assistance in activities of daily living and have limited family support.

By supporting the overall well-being of these seniors, we enable them to fulfil their dream of aging with grace and dignity in the neighbourhood of their youth.

A key component of the Cluster Support programme is the Caring Assistance from Neighbours ('CAN') programme. Here, neighbours are encouraged and empowered to take on the role of a caregiver to provide close monitoring and look out for the well-being of the frail and vulnerable elderly during home visits. Such caregivers remind these seniors to take their medication, monitor their health, and ensure that the seniors attend their required medical appointments. The caregivers will have regular meetings with the case workers to update and review the senior's progress.

Care Corner Community Resource, Engagement and Support Team ['CREST'] @ Toa Payoh
Care Corner CREST @ Toa Payoh was launched in Toa Payoh estate to facilitate better integration of seniors with mental illness and their families with the community, health and social agencies and the government. It also serves to aid the caregivers who may be susceptible or suffering from caregiver burden (e.g. stress, anxiety, and depression).

This programme promotes awareness and early recognition of signs of depression and/or dementia. In addition to early diagnosis and intervention, the service focuses on education of the seniors and their caregivers on managing dementia and the mental illness and equip them with coping strategies, provision of emotional support, and locating the right care and assistance within the healthcare and social services systems e.g. hospitals and clinics for medical and psychiatric care; welfare groups and community service organisations for rehabilitation, social and financial assistance.

Toa Payoh Outreach Programme for Seniors (TOPS)
A non-funded programme, initiated by Care Corner FSC (Toa Payoh), the programme aims to enable elderly living in 3-room purchased HDB flats to age-in-place by adopting the bio-psycho-social approach to promote active ageing amongst the elderly.
