Visit by Minister Tan Chuan-Jin
Today, COMNET Senior Activity Centre at Blk 420, had the honour of hosting Mr Tan Chuan-Jin, Minister for Social and Family Development who visited our centre to understand more about our services. Mr Tan was received by Chief Executive Officer, Dr Vincent Ng, Deputy Director, Dr Terence Yow and Head of COMNET Senior Services, Mr Ng Koon Sing.
Our dedicated volunteers from Standard Chartered were engaging our seniors with their monthly Bingo activities. Upon seeing Mr Tan, our seniors were pleasantly surprised and some of the more excitable seniors asked for "we-fies" with Mr Tan which he gamely obliged.
Mr Tan toured the centre, and interacted with the seniors and staff, with the intention to learn more about our services and the difficulties encountered.
We had a fruitful and engaging dialogue with Mr Tan regarding the operational challenges and service gaps in serving the community. We are thankful that Mr Tan is supportive and open in wanting to strengthen support for the ageing population in Singapore.
