Our Aim

Filos developed a one-stop, home-based, value-added service of health and social care for the elderly living in the Kembangan-Chai Chee Community. Filos’ eldercare programmes aim to build a community that fosters social inclusion and engagement, allowing older persons of all ages to age-in-place, living their silver and golden years in familiar surroundings which they are happy to call HOME.

Active Ageing Centre

The Filos Active Ageing Centre provides a suite of services to support seniors in building strong social connections in their neighbourhood and in receiving timely access to integrated health and social care that allows them to age healthily, productively and happily in their community.  It’s a go to place where they can take part in recreational activities as well as contribute to help with the needs of others through volunteerism. The suite of services includes:

  • Active Ageing Programmes – Daily programmes are held. These include the HAPPY exercise programmes, that prevent and reverse physical and cognitive frailty, and interest workshops (such as creative arts programmes) that engage seniors with various talents and interests.
  • Buddy and Befriending Programmes that reach out to isolated seniors, as well as seniors living with chronic diseases or who are frail. Volunteer befrienders support seniors through regular tele-befriending and home visits.
  • Care Support through information and referral services for seniors with complex medical or social issues providing prompt linkages to help them with their needs.
  • Social Connector services provide linkages for lifestyle and social interventions for seniors. The Filos Active Ageing Centre will help them to connect with various programmes and services all around Singapore so that they can keep themselves active and healthy as they age in the community
  • Community Screening assists seniors to monitor their health through monitoring of vital signs, including pulse and blood pressure checks and measurement of weight, as they self-manage their chronic diseases in the community, in line with their personalised Health Plan. This is part of the Ministry of Health’s Healthier SG initiative.
