Wellness Kampung Wellness Kampung  

Kampung (“village” in Malay) is where we feel at home. Everyone is welcomed warmly, like part of a big family.

At the Wellness Kampung, you can ​take part in exercises and learn about healthy eating. There are also health talks and cooking sessions. You can pick up health tips and encourage one another to adopt healthier lifestyles. If you have questions, our community nurses will be there every week to help you understand more about your health condition and treatment.

But that’s not all! You can start your own interest group, bring your “kakis” or join other residents in activities such as singing, playing card games, calligraphy, craft and repair work, gardening and language classes.

In recognition for its effort in supporting the community as well as for its sustainable social design, the Wellness Kampung has clinched the following awards in 2019:

  • Asian Elderly Care Award 2019
    Best in Healthy and Active Ageing Services Category (GOLD)

  • Human City Design Award 2019
    This award combines the concept of social design and global outlook of Asia as an organic entity, with a design of a sustainable urban environment in which people can enjoy creative lives regardless of gender, age, financial wealth, and health or disability that one may have.

Share a Pot Share a Pot

Memories of family get-togethers around a steaming pot of soup. That’s how the idea for Share a Pot® came about. Since it started in 2014, there are now over 30 Share a Pot venues across Singapore.

Share a Pot brings together community partners, supporters and volunteers to encourage the elderly to exercise regularly, eat nutritious food and build strong bonds of friendship. The aim is to help our seniors improve their well-being with better nutrition, and by staying active and engaged in the community.

For a year, I did not get to go out as I was sick and had a fall. After coming here to exercise, I have become healthier. I was able to make friends and talk to them too!
