Singapore Patient Conference 2018
Date: October 19 (Friday)
Time: 10am – 4.30pm
Venue: Tan Tock Seng Hospital

The theme of this year’s sixth patient conference is centred on “Active Ageing for Life!” To successfully age-in-place in the community, it is important for our seniors to be activated and empowered with better knowledge, skills and confidence to care for one another in the community. Caregivers in various settings can benefit from working closer together to co-create a conducive ecosystem for a self-renewing community of care, anchored by the philosophy of “seniors for care, care for seniors”.

At the core of the active ageing agenda, we hope to delay frailty, or to ensure that the frail elderly can be well-supported. From the nurse in the polyclinic to the volunteer at the senior activity centre, reaching out to the frail in the community does not stop at healthcare institutions nor social service partners. Age-related frailty can be a treatable and preventable health problem through adoption of proper lifestyle and adequate physical, mental and social activities; individually and together in the community.

While “many hands” may be useful, it is working “hand-in-hand” through a system-wide perspective that will allow more partners to come together, to build resilience in the community that allows everyone to stay well, age well and live well. For more information, go HERE.
