Started in 1976, and formerly known as Community Home for Senior Citizens, Senior Community Home (SCH) provides accommodation for the elderly aged 60 and above, who are recipients of the Public Assistance Scheme, or who have no family and/or means of financial support.
SCH was founded on the vision of enabling seniors who expressed the desire to live as independently and for as long as possible, in the community. SCH organises regular activities to maintain the physical, social and mental health of its residents. Services and care provided are person-centred (high-touch), community-integrated (high volunteers/partners involvement), and team-based (multi-disciplinary). Residents are also empowered to take care of their own units and daily living needs.
Key activities include:
