How did the opportunity arise?

Eldercare & Caregivers Centre
The first of its kind in Singapore

The idea came about in 2017 after Ms Low Yen Ling, mayor or South West District & advisor to Bukit Gombak and its grassroots initiated a Rotary Family Service Centre-led project to develop and operate a separate service centre catering to the seniors, their caregivers and families.

The following key considerations were met:

  1. The idea was inline with the governments focus on the needs of seniors and their caregivers
  2. Fruitfully consulted MOH, AIC & SNEC on directions and support
  3. There is a sizeable population which could benefit from the centre – approximately 2,500 seniors & their caregivers living around Bukit Batok West Ave 5
  4. A space of about 460m2 at Blk 386 Bukit Batok West Ave 5 happens to be available
  5. Submission of funding application to Tote Board’s Community Healthcare Fund for seed capital and Centre’s programme funding via AIC where a favourable response is expected.
