TOUCH Community Case Management (TCCM) aims to enable vulnerable elderly, who have little or no family support, to age-in-place in the neighbourhoods of Woodlands, Sembawang and Yishun.
The TCCM team, which comprises community social workers, will make home visits to assess the well-being of frail and vulnerable seniors, particularly those with limited family support referred by community partners or through outreach in the neighbourhoods. With this layer of community support, it will ensure that this group of seniors will not fall through the cracks and continue to age with grace and dignity.
The social workers also provide case assessment and counselling besides coordinating healthcare services such as day care services, home nursing, personal care services, meals-on-wheels and transport service for medical appointments, as well as assist in transitional care from hospitals back to their own home.
Through its work, TCCM hopes to see:
- Frail and vulnerable seniors being able to access appropriate services and age-in-place
- Neighbours being empowered to care for the frail and vulnerable seniors
- Together with the Active Ageing Centres, the TCCM team creates a strong social and care support network for the seniors
