Desired Candidate Profile

Company Profile

SASCO Senior Citizens’ Home was set up on 21 January 1981 at the void deck of a HDB block 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.

We are also affiliated to the National Council of Social Service (NCSS) and a member of the NCSS Charitable Fund. When it was first set up, the Home took in 10 residents from the now defunct Woodstock Home. The intake soon expanded, with the Home in Telok Blangah consistently running at the full capacity of 20 residents. SASCO Home’s Sheltered Home facility has since moved to Hong San (Evergreen Place), where we are able to accommodate up to 102 seniors, while the Telok Blangah facility has been converted to a Day Care Centre.

Besides lodging and personal care, the Sheltered 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.
