Volunteering can be as simple as just being a friend to our patients. We actively canvass for volunteers to engage and bring cheer to our elderly residents, many of whom may lose touch with the outside world due to physical or mental disabilities. Volunteers may be student groups, working adults, religious organisations, pet therapists or community help groups.
We are an IPC(Institution of a Public Character) registered organisation. Therefore, under Business and IPC Partnership Scheme (BIPS), all businesses will enjoy tax deduction on qualifying expenditure incurred when they send their employees to volunteer and provide services at our organisation

Corporate Social Responsibility / Community Engagement
Many residents staying in institutionalised care have a tendency to suffer from the four major problems of loneliness, boredom, despair and isolation.
Join us in our cause to combat these issues.
We are all about collaboration. We believe that each person or team brings about unique needs and dynamics.
Share your proposal/ideas with us and we will be happy to work something out with you.
Here are some ways one can volunteer with us:
Games & Performances
Volunteers can play board games or other games with the elderly. They may also perform for the elderly.
Social and Educational Outings
Volunteers can conduct/accompany our residents on social or educational outings. During such trips, volunteers can engage the elderly by explaining to them what is going on so as to let them know what they can expect, mingle and interact with them to establish further bonding.
