Loneliness may be one of the worst feelings for seniors. For Kamala, she feels more lonely as she ages.
Widowed and with her family residing overseas, Kamala used to spend most of her days holed up at home watching television. Kamala was seriously injured after a fall and her temporary loss of independence forced her to further reduce her social interactions. Thankfully, Lions Befrienders, a social service agency supported by Community Chest that reaches out to seniors at risk of social isolation, helped her to reintegrate into the community after her discharge.
The care and support she received inspired her to help other seniors like her. When loneliness hit the elderly hard during the circuit breaker and social visits were halted, Kamala stepped forward to look out for her elderly neighbour by buying her food and ensuring her well-being. Volunteers of Lions Befrienders continue to visit Kamala weekly and monitor her welfare. Matched to a digital volunteer, Kamala has since learned to use a smartphone to keep in touch with her family.
Seniors need to stay engaged and socially active to lead healthier and more meaningful lives.
Your donation to SHARE will help seniors like Mdm Kamala age in place within the community.
