Objective:

*To Promote Active Ageing & Happy Lifestyle

*提倡活跃而快乐的生活方式、建构积极乐活的生活理念。

我们的长者,奉献了一生的岁月给国家、工作和家庭,如今,该是他们坐下来,好好休息及和别人分享他们的丰富经验的时刻。然,在忙碌的都市里,许多年轻人都必须为自己的事业和家庭打拼,每个人都有自己忙不完的事情要做。长辈们的心声,该向谁倾诉呢?乐龄朋友要活得健康长寿,必需要有社交活动,并多结交朋友,才能够让自己的晚年生活过得多姿多彩,从而减少心理疾病的产生,进而降低社会医药成本。因此,成立一个让乐龄朋友长期相互支持和学习的团体,是迫切需要的。

200772日,《快乐天使俱乐部》网站诞生了,它以文字和照片,记载了从20052月至今,我在各区举办的《快乐天使》活动剪影。它也为我和大家提供了网上交流和分享的平台。我希望这一个网站,能够为众天使和那些有意在自己的社区、学校和工作场所成立《快乐天使俱乐部》的人,提供咨询和帮助。

这是一个属于大家的网站,所有参与过《林珍流动工作站》之《快乐天使》的活动,都体验了通过讲、演、说、唱、舞、玩的方式来建立自信,强化自尊,进而信心满满地面对未来的生活和挑战。有不少乐龄朋友向我反映,游戏让他们达到忘老的境界,甚至出现青春重返的感觉。是的,让乐龄朋友体验青春重的感觉,让他们通过这种心理暗示,就会产生愉快、轻松、乐观、充满希望的情绪,增强脑力和体力劳动的效率和耐久力,使全身各系统生理功能调节在最佳水平上,保持整体的平衡,延缓衰老的进程。

《林珍流动工作站》与学校、各个社区基层组织和慈善机构相互配合,并应不同年龄层的乐龄朋友的身心灵需要,设计了独特的《快乐天使》活动,同时培训该区的工作人员、义工和乐龄参与者成为《快乐天使》活动的带领者和示范讲员,最终让更多人受益成为快乐天使,以积极的态度生活,活出快乐与自信,以对抗心理疾病。

目前,在大巴窑、裕廊西、裕廊东、碧山、亨德生和蔡厝港等区,参与《快乐天使》活动的乐龄朋友超过500名。从他们的正面回馈和看到他们喜乐而积极地成长,我深信,这一批《快乐天使》,必定能将他们的快乐,带给他区那些尚未参与《快乐天使》活动的人。

是的,生活之所以精彩而不孤单,因为人间有爱;《快乐天使》活动之所以受欢迎,因为有您的参与。

让我们一起为《快乐天使》加油喝采!请赶快报名,成为其中的一名快乐天使吧!欢迎各区的朋友,踊跃来函询问和报名。

祝好!

Jane’s address:

Ageing Singaporeans have committed their entire lives to the country, work and their family. It is high time for them to take a break, away from the hectic lifestyle which they previously toiled for and share their experiences to the younger generation. It is inevitable that the younger generation slogs and strives for excellence in their career and social life. Who then, can the older generation turn to if they are neglected? In order for ageing Singaporeans to live healthily to a ripe old age, they need to participate in social activities, in the process befriending more people. This will allow more vibrancy and liveliness in their lifestyle, reduce the chances of psychological and mental problems and thereby reduce the dependency on the society as well. As such, it is extremely important that friendships are built among fellow ageing Singaporeans to allow them to learn how to adapt to the rapidly changing world.

On 2nd July 2007, the “Happy Angel Club” website was formed. Using words and photographs, my experience among the elderly of different districts from February 2005 onwards are recorded in it. This website serves as a platform for which elderly alike get to share their experiences. It is my foremost dream to make the website the arena for which those who wish to improve themselves can assemble.

This website does not belong to me solely. It is in fact an effort to congregate all the participants who have gone through the workshops conducted by me. Using interesting ways to build confidence and improve self esteem, students grow in stature to face the different challenges in life. Through feedback, some elderly reflected that the interesting games that are played actually helped in making them feel young again. Indeed, that is one of my intentions. Allowing them to feel young again is just one of the ways of making them feel happy. Through these exercises, the elderly experience positive emotions of happiness, ecstasy and exhilaration which bring about physical and mental conditioning for the future and delaying the process of ageing.

Jane’s Mobile Workshop is heavily involved in schools, grassroots and charity organizations, working with people of all walks of life. The unique “Happy Angel” programme is also catered for care-givers, staffs, volunteers as well as other elderly who wish to help out by becoming demonstrators in future “Happy Angel” activities. This also helps in developing a positive attitude and self-confidence which are definitely important in resisting illnesses.

Currently, we have more than five hundred elderly from all over Singapore, including Toa Payoh, Jurong East, Bishan, Henderson and Choa Chu Kang. From their positive responses and enthusiasm, I strongly believe that the Happy Angel programme will certainly bring them joy and laughter, becoming happy angels themselves as well.

Life is full of excitement and laughter. There is no point in hiding in a corner by yourself, sulking your way through. The reason why “Happy Angel” is successful is because of the wide support from the elderly members.

I urge you to quickly sign up for this programme if you wish to experience a second spring over and over again. Hurry up and be one of the Happy Angel yourself!

Warmest Regards,

Jane Lim
