Singapore to launch $3.5b Age Well SG programme

DPM Wong said will support the expansion of active ageing centres.

The Singapore government will be investing $3.5b over the next decade in a new programme that will cater to senior citizens and ensure their well-being.

Deputy Prime Minister Lawrence Wong said this programme will include expanding the network of active ageing centres offering a wider range of programmes from physical exercises to volunteering activities.

The programme will also include developing more assisted living options such as Community Care Apartments and improving home care arrangements.

“Silver upgrades" will also be implemented in residential properties to enable seniors to live more independently and safely, which will include amenities such as therapeutic gardens and barrier–free ramps.

Age Well SG will also develop commuter infrastructure such as bus stops and roads to ensure that they are senior-friendly.

“Preventive care is especially important. Loneliness can do great harm to seniors. They need to stay active and stay socially connected
