ELDER CARE SERVICES
 

Care Corner elder care services aim to provide safe and caring environments for poor and vulnerable seniors, engage them through meaningful activities and support them with appropriate services

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 four SACs [i.e. SAC(TP5), SAC(TP62B), 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.

Care Corner Senior Activity Centre (Cluster Support) ['SAC(CS)']
SAC(CS) was launched in Toa Payoh estate 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 SAC(CS) 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.

Community Resource, Engagement and Support Team ['CREST']
Care Corner CREST Service 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.

Care Express Elderly Outreach
