Integrating seniors in the community through participation and interaction of the community.
• Wesley Senior Activity Centre (WSAC) situated at the void-deck of Block 25 in Jalan Berseh was set up by Methodist Welfare Services (MWS) in partnership with Wesley Methodist Church in October 2010. Opened to seniors aged 60 years and above, WSAC serves this group of residents living in the 2-room HDB rental flats at Block 25 Jalan Berseh, as well as the 3- & 4-room flats nestled along the Rochor Canal, comprising blocks 26 to 30.
• This Centre aims to improve the overall quality of life and prevent social isolation of the vulnerable elderly living in this block of HDB rental flats. It also hopes to facilitate better co-ordination in the provision of community-based support services to the seniors. It is a drop-in centre where seniors are welcome to come to enjoy the facilities and to participate in the centre’s planned activities.
• The core programmes include daily exercise conducted by staff and volunteer trainers. This is held Monday to Friday at 9.30am, after exercise, many stay on to enjoy a simple breakfast and the camaraderie is infectious. There is also a sense of ownership as the seniors help to clear the tables and bring used cutlery and cups to the pantry for
the volunteers to wash. The centre’s philosophy of care encourages independence and engagement, also the goals of a seniors activity centre. Besides exercise, karaoke sessions are held every Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 2.00-4.30pm.
WSAC is located at
Block 25 #01-142
