Greetings to all members!
Yet another work year is soon drawing to a close. It has been a
quiet but nonetheless busy year for the Council as we discussed
and brainstormed on a few key issues related to the work of the
Society. The Society was founded in 1986 with the aim of helping
people understand gerontology, or simply put, the science of
ageing. Our purpose still remains very relevant today but perhaps
what needs relooking at is the how and what we do to achieve
This is our 2nd year participating in the Policy Analysis Exercise
(PAE) conference organized by the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public
Policy. The topic we gave was Policy Options for Addressing Long
Term Care Financing in Singapore. A summary of the fi ndings is
published in this bulletin. (For full report visit www.gs.org.sg)
The coming AGM has been scheduled on 18 August, 1.00pm
at the Lifelong Learning Institute. We welcome and encourage
all members to contribute ideas for the activities next year.
Immediately after the AGM, we have a symposium, chaired by
A/P Thang Leng Leng, titled “ Ageing Well - Singapore Style”.
Looking forward to seeing all of you there!
