Each elderly person truly is – a child of God. Although senior in age, we often forget that they too are children of God, and like any child, they too need to experience God’s love, mercy and care. In our society in Singapore, many have forgotten this and many of our elders are indeed “forgotten”.
The Ministry for the care of elders can make a difference by extending love; respect and companionship to the elders of the parish, helping them have a sense of belonging and to remain a vital and vibrant part of the community.
We welcome those who can help us operate the St Mother Teresa Corner and who have a desire and inclination to care for seniors, and or have prior experience and knowledge in gerontology and befriending of seniors.
