St Luke’s ElderCare to open first active ageing hub before HealthierSG launch
Singapore’s healthcare reform begins in July 2023.
Healthcare provider, St Luke’s ElderCare (SLEC), revealed that it will soon open a hub that will serve 3,000 seniors in the community on 26 May 2023.
The first Active Ageing Hub@Bishan offers maintenance and dementia daycare, active ageing, and community rehabilitation services for residents in the vicinity.
Kenny Tan, SLEC CEO, said the hub will show “how the CommCare sector can collaborate with healthcare and community partners to take transformative preventive care to new heights and serve those aged 50 years and above on preventive health.”
SLEC will provide preventive health programmes to keep the geriatric population engaged, active, and healthy.
“SLEC’s active ageing programmes include the WE! (Workout Empowerment!) and the newly launched Fit Agers which targets those with or at risk of chronic conditions,” read the statement.
“Ageing-friendly activities such as fitness classes, workshops on digital inclusion, nutrition, arts and other activities have been curated with our active agers’ physical, social-emotion and spiritual well-being in mind and seek to engage, empower and enrich their lives,” it added.
