SENIOR ACTIVITY CENTRE

The Senior Activity Centre (SAC) provides recreational and social activities for seniors who are at least 60 years old and who reside in the rental blocks of Block 123 and 125, Ang Mo Kio Avenue 6.

 

The Centre serves as a drop-in centre providing an environment for low-income seniors to gather and engage. Social activities are hosted by SAC staff and volunteers. The community outreach programmes, social recreational and therapeutic activities encourage seniors to remain integrated in society, improve their quality of life and prevent social isolation.

 

The Centre also manages the Alert Alarm System, installed by the Housing Development Board in all units at Block 123 Ang Mo Kio Ave 6 for emergency triggers.

 

The system comprises a control panel located at the Centre, two panic buttons / cords installed in each of the household units and a siren installed at each end of the floor. The seniors can activate the alarm by pressing one of the panic buttons or pulling one of the pull cords during an emergency. Staff will respond to the calls; and other residents or passers-by hearing the activated alarm can also assist and respond to the emergency.

 

Activities include handicrafts, bingo games, excursions to places of interest and more. The Centre also encourages seniors to stay healthy and keep fit by providing health screening and exercise programmes such as line dancing.
