“We miss the point when we think that all older people need are a roof over their heads, food on the table and maybe some personal care, instead of looking at their overall sense of well-being.”

Dr Mary Ann Tsao

What We Do

The Hua Mei Centre for Successful Ageing (HMCSA) is a one-stop primary healthcare provider. We deliver team-managed medical, social, and psycho-emotional care primarily to adults aged 40 years and above living in the community. We also offer support and guidance to their caregivers.

HMCSA is an integrated collective of various community aged care service models that we have pioneered since 1993.

We practice person-centred, holistic healthcare with the aim to enable individuals to optimize their health and well-being across the life course, and to age at home and in the community.

We encourage self-care and self-mastery to promote wellbeing, providing necessary information and training at the clients’ pace. Clients of HMCSA can consult at more than one clinic or programme at the same time, or transfer from one to another as their needs change over time. Over the care continuum, we engage our clients in active health promotion and preventive healthcare through to disease management and end of life care.
