Seniors

Seniors who lack social support for a prolonged period of time invariably experience a decline in their quality of life. While eldercare services are extensive in Singapore, some seniors may lack the resources, knowledge or support to access help that fit their needs or lifestyle preferences. This network sets out to understand how vulnerable seniors can make choices that support their physical, psychological and social well- being.

While help is available for persons with disabilities in their growing years, they face challenges finding suitable employment, recreation and appropriate care when transiting from adulthood into old age. This network sets out to understand how persons with disabilities can be supported to live life as independent individuals.

This network sets out to understand what can be done to help them attain greater social mobility through education and employment.
