CWA provides Welfare and Social Support services to assist the seniors and their caregivers in their caregiving journey.
Services/ Programmes for Seniors
1) The Mind-Active Programme
CWA has initiated the Mind–Active Programme to provide group-based cognitive stimulation and social activities for seniors.
An important facet of finding a good balance in managing our general wellbeing is not only staying cognitively active, but also being physically active as often as we can. Like physical exercises which help strengthen our bodies, stimulating our minds cognitively can also result in beneficial outcomes like improving our memories in the long run.
Some benefits which cognitive engagement activities can bring about in a senior are being more focused, improvement in one’s planning skills, and even in developing problem-solving skills. Besides the cognitive benefits, the senior’s social network of friends may also be widened through the Mind-Active programme.
What is 'Mind-Active'?
Mind-Active is a centre-based programme which caters for healthy and active seniors.
During the programme, seniors will be engaged in various cognitive activities such as:
- Reminiscence activities
- Art as a form of therapy
- Music interaction
- Physical exercises
- Puzzles and games
