With Deepavali around the corner (6 Nov 2018), our Caring Heart team took this opportunity to visit(2nd Nov 2018) our Indian beneficiaries.

These needy and elderly beneficiaries were selected from our group of registered clients from our Afterlife Memorial Service programme.

Our team also took this unique opportunity to continue building on our friendship with the beneficiaries. During this visit, we also pay attention to their living conditions, surrounding environments and to check on their health. We also observe if they show signs of emotional isolation. A record will kept for future assessments and follow ups.

These home visits also help our Caring Heart team to have a better understanding and be able to come up with better formulated focus aids, making them more effective and meaningful.
