COVID-19 Resources

for our Seniors

Stay-home arrangements may not always work well with our seniors who may be so used to regular social gatherings such as tai-chi classes or hang-outs for kopi-sessions at neighbourhood coffeeshop. We recognize the effects of prolonged social isolation can lead to depression, that is why our team has put together this list of relevant resources & regularly update them to give your fresh ideas that help engage our seniors at home. As a COVID-Breaker, no one is left behind!
