Centre for Active Ageing and Networking
What We Do
WORLD ELDERS DAY
We join the UN International Day of Older Persons all over the world to celebrate the achievements and contributions of our older people to the society through our popular and successful WORLD ELDERS DAY once every year in October.
HEALTH AND WELLNESS
The health and wellness of older people is a critical component of vibrant living. At Family Ark Mission, our medical practitioners offer you free monthly health check and provide information and advice on how to keep healthy.
We offer seminars and talks on various illnesses and how to avoid them.We also provide sessions on topics such as nutrition, the benefits of physical, social and mental activities, and living your best life while dealing with some of the age-related health issues common to older people.
To tackle the problem of loneliness among older people, Family Ark Mission has developed befriending services. The service works by assigning each older person a befriender, who provides friendly conversation and companionship on a regular basis over a long period of time.
MEALS ON WHEEL
We plan to provide hot meals to older people who are receiving care in the hospital or those who live alone and have difficulty shopping or cooking for themselves. We will offer a wide range of healthy menu choices, covering dietary needs and special requirements like soft foods or diabetic meals.
