Overview 

Living Well and Ageing Gracefully in Singapore
The Agency for Integrated Care (AIC) is the designated single agency to coordinate the delivery of aged care services, and to enhance service development and capability-building across both health and social domains.
AIC seeks to create a vibrant care community enabling our people to live well and age gracefully by working closely with the various stakeholders in the community to raise the quality of care and bring care support closer to those in need.
This talk gives an overview of the senior care landscape in Singapore and aims to empower participants with information on help available for seniors and their caregivers, as well as to spark discussions on how the business community can contribute towards a nation where everyone can enjoy their golden years.


Rescued By The Rescued
How can we ensure corporate philanthropy continues to impact society, in a country that is already one of the best-governed and richest in the world?
What are some of Singapore’s hidden needs? What are the new frontiers for Singapore?
To this, we can look to Gandhi for inspiration. He said: “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way in which its animals are treated.”
In this talk, hear about how a young Singaporean charity is striving to embody this vision – and take it one step further.
