Improving The Well-Being Of Seniors And Help Them Live Well, Age Well

We all want to live well, especially as we grow older. Being healthy, happy and having friends for support are essential for our physical and emotional well-being as we age. To make this a reality for seniors, FUN! Fund pilots creative ideas that empower Singaporeans to age well, stay socially connected, and enjoy life as they get older. 

Combating Senior Loneliness: Enhancing Quality of Life 

Research indicates that seniors who perceive themselves as lonely tend to have shorter lifespans and experience a poorer quality of life. 

The available range of activities for older people in the community is limited, leaving many seniors feeling isolated and unfulfilled. Caregivers of seniors often find themselves juggling work and family responsibilities on top of caring for their elderly loved ones. This has led to a concerning rise in cases of caregiver burnout and psychological distress, affecting both caregivers and seniors alike.

What Is FUN! Fund?

The Community Foundation of Singapore (CFS) in collaboration with the Agency for Integrated Care (AIC) has introduced the FUN! Fund, a community impact initiative dedicated to enhancing the well-being of our seniors, helping them live well and age well by pioneering innovative methods of engagement. 

FUN! Fund aims to build the capacity of social organisations and their staff to create stimulating and engaging activities that appeal to seniors. The element of ‘fun’ is integrated into these programmes to enrich the lives of seniors and encourage them to try new things, stay curious and be explorative.  

FUN! Fund will develop a playbook and host post-learning workshops to educate social organisations in Singapore about the significance and effectiveness of infusing fun into their programmes. 

Special Thanks

We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.
