Activities for seniors online

Stuck at home and no activities to attend? No worries, you can still learn new things and be active.

When freelance educator-artist Moses Sia heard about the extended suspension of activities for seniors because of COVID-19, he wanted to do something and “bring cheer” to them. So, the 53-year-old started Silver Good, a Facebook group where he is planning to livestream sessions in mostly English on exercise, music, craft, storytelling and cooking for seniors from 8am to 10am on weekdays. The sessions start on March 30, 2020 and will end on April 3, 2020. Those who miss the sessions can still view them in the group.

Volunteers will be conducting the sessions which can range from 10 to 15 minutes, and according to Moses, there are currently 24 volunteers with a handful of those who are over the age of 50. The volunteers will be singing golden oldies, doing simple stretches from head to toe, painting with brewed coffee, and making smoothies and healthy bread.

The Silver Good Facebook page has 99 members and Moses hopes to increase this number further when he reaches out to senior organisations like RSVP Singapore and family service centres. He shared, “Really see this as a community effort. It is wonderful what we can do when we each chip in just a small bit.”
