Enabling our elderly to age with confidence and grace

The elderly's wishes are simple: to have easy access to healthcare when they need it, and to live independently and confidently in the community, close to their loved ones.

At SingHealth, we work closely with community health and social care partners to help the elderly age in place. At the same time, we partner these organisations to build professional capabilities in community care.
