THK Community Befriending Programme

THK Community Befriending Programme provides psycho-social support to vulnerable elderly through our befriending services. Befrienders visit elderly regularly to keep loneliness and social isolation away. From these visits, our befrienders can identify other areas of need and inform the Programme Coordinators to refer the vulnerable elderly to other service providers.

Objectives of the centre:

  • To provide befriending services to home care patients and vulnerable / socially isolated elderly
  • The befrienders serve as an additional pair of eyes for home care providers and community nurses by providing feedback if there are any changes in their clients’ conditions
  • The focus is on elderly living in non-rental precincts
