Blk 98, Harmony Activity Centre/Geylang East Neighbourhood Link:

Harmony Activity Centre (HAC) is a Senior Activity Centre in Aljunied Crescent with the mission of aiming “to integrate the lower income seniors living in the community into mainstream society, with the active participation of the wider community”.

Also a subsidiary service of Geylang East Home for the Aged (GEHA), HAC was formerly known as The Senior Citizens Recreation Centre (from 1986 to 1995), then Neighbourhood Centre (from 1995 to 2005), and Geylang East Neighbourhood Link (2005 to 2011). Its current name was given in 2011 to reflect its evolution with the changing needs of our society and our local community.

HAC’s target group is any elderly, aged 60 and above, living in rental blocks in Aljunied Crescent. However, we also extend our programmes and services to elderly in need who may not fall within the specified service cluster, yet residing in the immediate vicinity.

Our main operations include running of regular and ad hoc programmes and/or activities ( click here for them), monitoring of the at-risk elderly, provision of information, referral service and outreach.

In addition, HAC renders other value-added services like casework and/or case management, provisions of monthly food ration, weekday breakfasts and emergency interim meals, ad hoc housekeeping/maintenance, ad hoc escorting to medical appointments, disbursement of taxi vouchers for medical appointments, and post-death undertakings as long as it is within its means to help (application and assessment apply though).

One key feature of our work is the partnership with both individual and corporate volunteers who assist in ensuring sustainability. We also collaborate with community and grassroots organizations, social service agencies and healthcare organizations to serve the elderly better.
