What are Senior Activity Centres?

Commonly situated at the void decks of HDB flats, Senior Activity Centres (SACs) are communal spaces where seniors in the neighbourhood can socialise with fellow seniors through various programmes and activities, and seek social support. SACs are conveniently located in these residential areas to provide a warm and familiar environment for seniors to visit. 

The seniors served in SACs are mostly low-income seniors who are recipients of Public Assistance; seniors living alone with no caregivers; seniors at risk of social isolation and those that are physically vulnerable due to health and psychosocial problems. While SACs mainly focus on the needy and vulnerable seniors in the community, all elderly persons are welcome to drop by.

Services provided by Senior Activity Centres in Singapore

Senior Activity Centres provide several recreational activities as well as support services to help the elderly age in place within their communities. Some of these services include social activities to promote interaction, befriending programmes, monitoring of homebound and/or frail seniors, and even responding to emergency alerts. 

Besides actively organising social programmes for the elderly to mingle with one another, SACs also promote healthy nutrition and exercise, and provide basic health prevention programmes such as dementia screening. Following these health screenings, they will then provide community nursing posting for the seniors by collaborating with hospitals. These centres also serve as information and referral points for government services should they need additional assistance that goes beyond the Senior Activity Centre’s capabilities.

How to join a Senior Activity Centre in Singapore

If you are 60 years old and older, and have little to no family support and need assistance with basic Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) such as washing, dressing, feeding, and toileting, you are eligible to apply at a Senior Activity Centre and get access to their services free of charge.

Are Senior Activity Centres For You? 

Seeking medical treatment or social support in clinics and other private institutions can appear intimidating for some seniors. One of the great things about SACs is that, not only are they situated in the heartlands, bringing assistance and aid closer to seniors in their communities, they are also designed in a manner that is inviting, welcoming, and familiar to them. This could result in a more receptive and open mindset for seniors who drop by. 

Alternatively, if you would like to receive care in an even more familiar and comfortable environment, you can also explore home care services as an option for an elderly family member. Individuals will continue to receive care in their own home and maintain a degree of independence at the same time. Home care is more than just assisted living, but it is also about empowering seniors to take control of their daily lives.

If you need care support for an elderly loved one, our Care Pros can help. Reach out to our Care Advisors at 6100 0055 to learn more.
