Onboarding New Model for Active Ageing
In April 2022, MWS onboarded 3 more Senior Activity Centres to become Active Ageing Centres (AACs), as part of a nationwide initiative to provide all seniors with timely access to health and social care. The Centres (MWS Charis ACE AAC – Geylang East, MWS Wesley AAC – Jalan Berseh and MWS AAC – Golden Lily@Pasir Ris) have been engaging a wider pool of seniors in active ageing programmes, befriending them and making care referrals.
Functional Screening to Keep Seniors Healthy
Free/subsidised functional screenings were conducted for 225 seniors aged 60 and above at MWS Active Ageing Centre – Kebun Baru and MWS Bethany Nursing Home – Choa Chu Kang. The screenings help to detect age-related decline in oral, vision and hearing health.
Fostering Greater Cohesion so Seniors can Thrive
The team at MWS Senior Activity Centre – GreenTops@Sims Place conceptualised and ran a 6-session workshop on cultivating positive mindsets and behaviours, to foster a welcoming and respectful environment, and greater unity among its seniors.
