Who Are We?
Our Head Office and Sheltered Home for Seniors at:
30 Hong San Terrace
SASCO Senior Citizens' Home was set up on 21 January, 1981 at a HDB void deck in Telok Blangah to provide lodging and care for the destitute elderly regardless of race, language or religion. We were registered with the Commissioner of Charities in the same year, and attained IPC status on 23 November, 1989.
We are also affiliated to the National Council of Social Service (NCSS) and is a member of the NCSS Charitable Fund. When the Home was first set up, it took in 10 residents from the now defunct Woodstock Home. The intake soon expanded, with the Home consistently running at the full capacity of 20 residents at our old premises. The Home's occupancy continued to increase steadily since we moved to the new premises at Home@Hong San, now renamed Evergreen Place. We are able to accommodate up to a total of 102 seniors here.
Besides lodging and personal care, the Home provides a range of organised activities for our residents. These include karaoke sessions, board games, art and craft, and other group activities. To meet the residents' rehabilitative needs, professional physiotherapy sessions are conducted at least twice weekly. Spiritual needs are also not forgotten, and there is a private prayer room for residents of all religions to use. Basic recreational resources such as television sets, reading materials and board games are also available.
The objectives of the home is to provide board, lodging and care for Senior Citizens regardless of race or creed and to provide Day Care Services for the elderly.
To be a leader in providing social and economic services to the community.
To provide affordable community and social development programmes and to make a difference in people's lives.
