“He gives generously to the needy, his kindness lasts forever.”2 Corinthians 9:9
The Baptist Golden Age Home (BGAH) is a social ministry agency of the Singapore Baptist Convention. The vision of starting the Home was first conceived by the Women’s Department of the Convention. Through their initiation, a Management Committee was formed to plan and start a home for the aged. Since 15th March 1981, the Home has been operating.
BGAH seeks to provide a place where lonely old people can get together, interact with one another, share their problems and experiences, and find comfort, companionship and care. We aim to alleviate their physical hardship without sacrificing independence, to fulfill their emotional and spiritual needs to bring to their hearts happiness, hope and meaning. Residents are encouraged to be active and independent. They participate in the daily routine of the Home.
Our main sources of income are from contributions by Baptist churches and individuals. A Financial Adoption Scheme was introduced to allow Baptist church members to adopt a resident for SGD 5.00 per month.
It is our hope that every Baptist member will share their part in the social ministry by doing the following:
– Visit the Home regularly
– Pray for the Home and its Management Committee
– Financially support the Home
The Management Committee and on behalf of the residents, wish to express our gratitude to all churches, organizations, and individuals who have so far contributed in bringing joy and happiness to the Home.
We trust that we will continue to have your support in the days ahead!
We welcome new residents to join us as long as they meet the following criteria:
- 60 years of age or older
- On public assistance or eligible to receive it
- Mobile and able to cope with day to day living
- Free from communicable diseases and mental illness
