MyBuddy Programme

 

A home-visit befriending programme mooted in 2013 to befriend discharged elderly patients and lonely seniors. This is a partnership programme with Khoo Teck Puat Hospital (KTPH) and Muslim Kidney Action Association (MKAC).

MyBuddy volunteers make regular home visits to elderly patients who have frequent hospital admission history. Volunteers offer companionship, simple acts of kindness and remind them to take their medication. The aim is to reduce the loneliness of the seniors and give them encouragement such that they will be able to look after themselves and have a brighter outlook on life.
