TriGen is a nonprofit organisation made up of healthcare professionals who are passionate about serving the elderly and nurturing the next generation to do the same. Their volunteers are health and social care professionals who lead and mentor youth volunteers in small teams. Through home visits, their teams provide holistic care for vulnerable seniors over one year through befriending, providing medical support and helping with their social needs. In view of the recent COVID-19 pandemic, TriGen has expanded their scope of work and kickstarted Project Wire Up to include digital literacy training for seniors.
With COVID-19 and social distancing, many elderly were socially isolated with no family to help them with their daily activities. TriGen saw a need to increase digital literacy and build digital connectivity amongst the elderly. Partnering with SGH PHICO, NTUC Health, Montfort Care and Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA), TriGen formed Project Wire Up. By reaching out to these elderly, Project Wire Up aims to Equip them with phones, Train them how to use it, and Connect them to their communities.
