THK Seniors Group Home (SGH)

The THK Seniors Group Home (SGH) is a residential home funded by the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF), in collaboration with the Housing Development Board (HDB) and Thye Hua Kwan Moral Charities. This assisted living home aims to enable seniors to co-reside independently in designated HDB rental flats which are retrofitted with elder-friendly features.  Support from community based services also empowers them to live in the community for as long as possible with dignity, integrity and respect.

Mission

To ensure that vulnerable seniors live independently in the community for as long as possible, within a supportive environment.  The mutual support of co-habitants and community services enable these seniors to have a sense of autonomy and of being in control of their own life.
