If you’ve been thinking of a meaningful way to give back, or 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 activity and day care centres. You will also have the opportunity to empower our seniors by conducting classes and outings. Help us create an inclusive society by befriending neighbours in the community who need may medication reminders or simply a listening ear.

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