Seniors are amongst the most vulnerable groups during the COVID-19 pandemic. In partnership with the Sayang Sayang Fund for the SeniorsOK@Home initiative, the Agency for Integrated Care (AIC) provided funding support to help nursing homes and other community care providers step up precautionary measures and strengthen their focus on managing the safety and wellbeing of their residents and staff. AIC also worked closely with CFS to provide appreciation funds to more than 90 community healthcare organisations for staff who are at the frontline against COVID 19 to keep our community and seniors safe.
During this period, it is important that we combine efforts with our partners to support seniors in a timely manner. The Sayang Sayang Fund, within a short time frame, has helped to channel significant and meaningful support for our Community Care partners and seniors.Tan Kwang Cheak, CEO, AIC.
