SilverHairsClub developed its main objective to provide a platform for SilverHairs, over 45, to meet new and more friends. Over the last 9 years, we get to understand our objective better, and whether it has served our efforts.
The Council of Third Age recent survey revealed that many Singaporeans who have left full time work are not able to fulfil their leisure interests because they need to look after their family duties first.
Grand children to look after, keeping the house clean, get ready homecooked food and caring after an ageing family member. Are you one of those who are unable to participate in SHC activities because you have family duties to do? What percentage of your SHC friends do you know fall under this category?
Or are you within the 36-45% surveyed that say your reasons for non-participation in leisure activities are due to lack of money or because of age? The survey added that most seniors prefer to keep to themselvces after they retired and may lack the courage to proactively intereact with others?
