3 Ageing In Place. (A Service Guide for Healthy Ageing) Ageing is a privilege and a societal achievement. It is also a challenge, which will impact on all aspects of 21st century society. It is a challenge that cannot be addressed by the public or private sectors in isolation; it requires joint approaches and strategies. - World Health Organisation* * World Health Organisation (n.d.) The world is fast ageing have we noticed? Retrieved 16 Apr 2007 from ii

4 Ageing In Place. (A Service Guide for Healthy Ageing) A Note from SingHealth An ageing population will pose increased health, economic and social challenges to Singapore. There has been a rapid expansion of health and community services for the older persons, both by the government and voluntary welfare organisations, to meet their health and social needs. Many older persons are very healthy and lead independent lives. However, there are also others who require health and support services. Various home-based community services are available to assist the older persons and their caregivers to help ensure appropriate care at home. In SingHealth, we believe that everyone should be empowered to manage his or her own care. True empowerment stems from ready access to information. With this ready access, one is supported to make critical and informed decisions about their health and lifestyle. This is paramount for the older persons and their caregivers. This guide aims to create awareness among healthcare providers in the community on the types of services available for the older persons, so that they can better advise those under their care. A joint effort with the National Council of Social Service and Integrated Care Services, this is a SingHealth initiative to bring together key stakeholders in aged care, harnessing the strengths of each partner in creating an effective community healthcare model for the people in Singapore.

A wide range of eldercare support services and programmes is available for them to stay physically and mentally active as well as socially engaged. These services and programmes are developed to promote ageing in place, where the family concept is preserved as the best social insurance for its members, thereby allowing the older persons to age gracefully in familiar surroundings whilst maintaining their self-worth and dignity.

16 Home Introduction Many older people prefer to live in a familiar environment with their family members and friends. However, in the event that the older person and / or the family cannot manage to completely care or support the needs of the older person, home-based or community-based services may be required to help the older person to continue staying at home, while providing some form of respite and support for their caregivers. Available Services: Befriending Services Day Care Centres (Social Day Care Centres) Day Rehabilitation Centres Dementia Day Care Centres Home Help Services Home Medical Service Home Nursing Care Home Therapy Services Hospice Home and Day Care B.01

17 Home Befriending Services Befriending Services aim to promote the general emotional and psycho-sociological wellbeing of the lonely and vulnerable elderly living in the community. The programme recruits and trains volunteers (including healthy seniors) to befriend and provide support to the isolated and vulnerable seniors who are homebound, have no family support and at risk due to physical, health, social and / or psycho-emotional reasons. The volunteers visit these seniors on a regular basis and help them in simple household chores, running of errands and ad hoc escorts for medical appointments. Where possible, the volunteers also accompany these seniors for group outings or to participate in social and recreational activities.
