TOUCH Senior Group Home (TSGH) aims to enable older persons with little or no family support to continue living in an elder-friendly environment. The one-room rental flats funded by the Ministry of Social and Family Development, in collaboration with the Housing Development Board and TOUCH, are furnished with elder-friendly features.
The seniors we support are aged 60 and above, referred by the Agency for Integrated Care (AIC) and are eligible to live in HDB rental flats.
Our social workers assess their individual needs, coordinate and facilitate services, including monitoring their health and safety within the Senior Group Home, financial assistance, hospital admissions, medical appointments and counselling sessions.
Through its work, TSGH hopes to help these seniors in the following ways:
- Enable them to be more independent and take greater personal responsibility in managing their health and safety
- Encourage the seniors living together to look out for one another's needs
- Leverage on existing community services to enhance the seniors' well-being and quality of life
- Network with other agencies in the community
