C3 SENIORS PROGRAMME
– Active Ageing Programme –
The active ageing programme encourages seniors to stay healthy and active, both physically and mentally. Through a wide array of activities and events, C3 strives to engage seniors aged 60 years and above to be active and engaged in the community.
– Collaboration –
C3 is also looking out for collaborations with student groups to enrich the lives of our seniors. Most of C3’s events and activities depend largely on volunteers and sponsorship. Without support and generous sponsors, the events and activities will not be so successful and meaningful. Contact C3 to see how you can partner them to bless the seniors in Potong Pasir.
- Befriending Service –
The befriending service involves befrienders (volunteer) making weekly visits to our befriendees’ (socially isolated seniors) residences to offer them supportive, reliable relationships and social and psycho-emotional support. C3 reaches out to and engage lonely seniors (65 years and above) through home visits and coordinate social activities for them with the help of volunteers. The aim is to help seniors age in place gracefully with dignity in their golden years.
