The Tsao Foundation is dedicated to transforming the experience of longevity for it to be an actualization of our full potential for growth, health and fulfillment in a society for all ages. Established in 1993 as a non-profit family foundation, the Tsao Foundation focuses on promoting successful ageing and active ageing as framed by the World Health Organization.
The Foundation’s work is taken forward through three interlinked initiatives:
Hua Mei Centre for Successful Ageing, which pioneers medical, social and psycho-social care services to mature adults living in the community, using a person-centred, team-managed approach;
Hua Mei Training Academy, the country’s only dedicated provider of training in community-based eldercare, offering professional and entry-level certificate courses, as well as informal training and public education; and
International Longevity Centre Singapore, which implements ground-breaking community development programmes, policy relevant research, and stakeholder collaborations to join the dots between community, academia, enterprise and public policy for more innovative and effective approaches to population ageing.
