Stay-home arrangements due to COVID-19 situation 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.
