Some community organisations in Singapore are seeing more seniors step up as volunteers, reaching out to those who live alone or acting as caregivers to other seniors here.

They are calling for greater support for this group, including government subsidies or mental health services to help in their caregiving roles.

With Singapore set to attain “super-aged” status in 2026, such organisations also told CNA that it will take more than just the efforts of volunteers to help seniors age in the community.
