The Tsao Foundation launched its latest ground-breaking programme, the Community for Successful Ageing at Whampoa (ComSA@Whampoa), on Saturday 11 April 2015 at Ramada Singapore @ Zhongshan Park.
Taking a community-wide approach, ComSA seeks to advance good health through self-care, enable community action to support positive ageing, provide efficient and effective bio- and psychosocial healthcare in the community for our elders, and fulfil their aspiration to age in place.
To reflect its collaborative nature, the project's launch was accompanied by a Symposium themed, "Towards a community-wide approach to successful ageing".
Around 150 people intended the event, including partners of ComSA@Whampoa, hospital and social service executives, civil servants and academics.
The presentations by the Keynote Speaker, Mr Alex Ross, Director, World Health Organisation Centre for Health Development, Kobe, Japan, the Tsao Foundation’s ComSA team and other partners in ComSA@Whampoa are found below.
