Help more older couples strengthen their marriages! 帮助年长夫妻巩固婚姻关系 #MidYearAppeal2023

Mr Chan and Mdm Khoo are regulars at PCS Presbyterian Eldercare @ Potong Pasir (PEPP). PEPP is one of our two Maintenance Day Care (MDC) centres providing subsidised day care services for elderly while their family or caregivers are unavailable during the day. 

Having been married for 53 years, Mr Chan and Mdm Khoo know and love each other best. However, when they had to stay at home all day during the Covid-19 period, they began to experience more friction with each other. Mr Chan also had a leg injury during that time, which saw him becoming more dependent on his wife.

Their children decided to enroll them in the MDC near their home. PEPP became a neutral zone for the couple to meet other friends and have their own personal space and time. 

An outgoing person by nature, Mdm Khoo liked how the MDC gave her many opportunities to hone her dierent interests. Mr Chan, an introvert, gradually warmed up to the new environment and people at PEPP too. He also discovered a love for the game Rummy-O, a more mentally stimulating alternative to his previous pastime of watching TV programmes.

Chan先生和Khoo女士是长老会社区服务(PCS)波东巴西活跃中心(PEPP)的常客。PEPP是PCS其中一家乐龄维护日托(MDC),提供有津贴的日间护理服务。

结婚53年的Chan先生和Khoo女士是彼此的知己。然而,当冠状病毒席卷新加坡时,Chan先生的腿受伤,导致他更加依赖Khoo女士。在家里的朝夕相处也意味他们之间难免有更多的摩擦

他们的孩子决定让他们加入靠住家的PEPP。这里成为夫妻俩各自结交朋友和发现自己兴趣爱好的新天地。

外向的Khoo女士马上就喜欢MDC的环境,因为她在这里能有很多机会发展她的兴趣爱好。内向的Chan先生也渐渐习惯新的环境。他之前大部分的时间都花在看电视上,最近却发现他喜欢拉密數字牌。
