The project strives to engage 40 to 80 seniors per session from Elderly Homes or Rental Flats for a total of 4  sessions  throughout  a  year,  where  the  seniors  will  be  engaged  with  the  Mental  Fitness  Game  of Rummikub.  At  the  same  time,  we  support  Dignity  Kitchen,  a  social  enterprise  providing  life-skill  and vocational training to adults with mental and/or physical disabilities for employment in the F&B industry.

Rummikub, which is the mental fitness game supported by FRCS, is the perfect game to  actively  engage our seniors to prevent the ageing of their mental faculties.

The first pilot service day project was held on 10 Oct 2015, the World Mental Health Day.  In partnership with the Rotary Club of Suntec City  and their  Rotaractors and Interactors,  we held another session with great success on 23 Jan 2016. More sessions will be organised at regular intervals till end of June 2016.

We look forward to partnering with any corporate organisation such as the Cotton On to bring this project to the next level, involving more youths, i.e. our Rotaractors and Interactors as well as employees of Cotton On.
