[COVID-19] Help needy homebound seniors during this trying time
First and foremost Caregiving Welfare Association (CWA) would like to take this opportunity to wish each and everyone well during this pandemic period.
The first Circuit Breaker measures was implemented on 7 April 2020 to better control the spread of COVID-19 in Singapore. Social contacts and movements are being restricted. Non-essential work force is to work from home. However, CWA has continued to provide Home Personal Care (HPC) service as this service is critical to homebound seniors living alone or spousal who require assistance in their Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) during this period.
Apart from HPC service, the funds will also be channelled to support CWA’s on-going programmes and services, such Case Management/ Counselling, Caregiver Support Programmes, Mind-Able Programme, etc.
As such, we need your support to help us sustained our programmes and services, in particular, the HPC service.
During this trying time, we see a significant drop in our donation. Fundraising projects, such as Flag Day 2020 had been cancelled that caused an impact to our funds.
How can you help?
The HPC service aims to bring quality care to homebound seniors who require assistance in their Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), which include, personal hygiene, feeding, toileting, transferring, etc.
A donation of $600 to $700 could help provide 36 hours of HPC service to
homebound seniors, especially those in the lower income groups.
To date, CWA has
provided more than 11,120 hours of HPC service to seniors and hopes that with
the funds raised, we are able to reach out to more homebound seniors who
require this service. With the HPC
service, the homebound seniors would be able to age in place as institutional
care should be the very last resort. The HPC service also served as a respite care for
