If you’ve been thinking of a meaningful way to give back, or are simply looking to make some new friends while doing some good, we welcome you to volunteer your spare hours to help bring a smile to our seniors.

As a volunteer, you will be bringing much needed cheer to our nursing home residents and seniors at our active ageing centres and day centres for seniors. You will also have the opportunity to empower our seniors with new skills and improve their overall well-being by conducting classes and outings. Help us create an inclusive society by befriending neighbours in the community who may need medication reminders or simply a listening ear.

With your dedicated help, NTUC Health can continue to support the seniors in our community.
