Wendy, Neighbourly Together Volunteer

“As a caregiver of my mother, networking is so important for her and me. No one wants to be isolated, but as the older senior and caregiver is so easy to be isolated. I don’t want to be and I know that to learn different resources, make a new friend and attend different activities, it is good for my mother and me. At the same time, I really love to give my hand to help other seniors. I believe that this is the way to build up a better and harmonious community.

Mencius, an early Chinese philosopher once advocated this: ‘Care for my own aged parents and extend the same care to the aged parents of others; love my own young children and extend the same love to the children of others.'”
