About this Event
For months, we have seen how the regular hustle and bustle of neighbourhoods all over the island quieten down. For months, we have seen how red and white tape surround vacant public facilities all over the island, as a deterrent against COVID-19 community transmission. This was unprecedented, they said. As we battled this novel virus, many have reflected upon whether we have been doing enough for our country’s vulnerable communities during the quiet months of the Circuit Breaker and Phase 1. In a time where technology proved to be most important, how have we been supporting our vulnerable seniors, who are perceived to be less-technologically savvy?

Join us and our panelists: Eleanor Yap, the founder of Ageless Online; Choo Jin Kiat, Executive Director of O’Joy Care Services; and Karen Wee, Deputy Executive Director of Lion Befrienders, as we explore some tangible actions that our society can undertake to better support our seniors as we move forward from COVID-19 in Singapore’s reopening of public facilities. In this 90-minute webinar, our invited speakers will share their insights on the measures that they have taken to support vulnerable, low-income seniors to tide over the national Circuit Breaker and Phase 1, and cope with the “new normal” that COVID-19 has presented our country and the world. The audience will be able to ask our panelist questions during a Questions & Answers segment of the webinar.
