The Singapore University of Social Sciences has embarked on a programme to help its students better understand the needs of the elderly and their caregivers.
SUSS recently signed signed memorandums of understanding with the People’s Association (Ang Mo Kio Community Centre), Sport Singapore (SportSG), Changi General Hospital (CGH) and SingHealth Community Hospitals to promote active ageing.
SUSS gerontology faculty and students will work together with the ActiveSG gym at Ang Mo Kio Community Centre to do research on sports, wellness and education.
SUSS will also cooperate with hospitals in the areas of healthcare innovation, research and education to help elderly patients.
Changi General Hospital will also provide guidance and internship opportunities to SUSS PhD students, particularly those reading gerontology.
