Senior citizens in Tong Sim Centre

Who are we

This is a centre housing senior citizens who have been abandoned by their families.  Many of them were admitted to the hospitals for medical care by their own children and family members.  However, once they are ready to be discharged, their next of kin could not be contacted because the contact information provided to the hospitals were false.

These senior citizens were left behind at hospitals with nowhere to go.

Hospitals in the Klang Valley and other areas have been sending these senior citizens to Tong Sim centre for care and shelter.  The centre has been around for more than 10 years.

Some folks are immobile and in need of nursing care. Some volunteers come once or twice a week to help bathe the inmates, help with daily routines or simply keep them company.

Who is behind the centre

Mr Cheong Loy is a coffin-maker who runs the funeral parlour on the grounds of the Kwong Tong Cemetery in Sungei Besi, has opened the first floor of his shop to house these “guests”, he keeps accepting more people on the kindness and generosity of his heart. The centre has been around for more than 10 years. The hospitals provide them with free medical care but the expenses for the centre comes from Mr Cheong Loy and from the public.
