Loving Heart Story
BY THE COMMUNITY, FOR THE COMMUNITY, WITH THE COMMUNITY
Loving Heart was set up in 2000 with a clear vision of serving the community, and for this purpose it was called a multi-service centre as the needs of the community are many. It was and is truly home-grown as the staff live in Yuhua or nearby, and they understand the residents well.
As Yuhua has a sizeable ageing population, its focus turned to serving the elderly, many of whom lived in the studio apartments in a block affectionately called Block 318A. It set up a recreation service to cater to these residents. Later this service became a Senior Activities Centre to cater to residents of nearby rental blocks. As the population aged, our volunteers stepped up in their service and started a group called Yuhua Peer Support Group which introduced simple case management of frail elderly. Such is the spirit of our volunteers.
