Please recommend a centre to send aged parent for exercise,

With most families being dual-income-with-kids, outsourcing home cleaning and home economics to domestic helpers is almost a way of life for Singaporeans. Come in and discuss issues pertaining to maids and home management.

My dad went to Ren Ci Day Care Center for the Elderly at Hougang.
There are many others so it depends on which is more convenient.

My father in law goes to Alexendra hospital for exercise. He is 84 year old. I think each time is 1hour.

I saw a chinese programme on channel 8 , thnk is 星期二 or 前线追踪, and it talked about residents fitness centre in some h d b blocks.

There are staff there to guide the old folks or sick people in using the fitness equipments. It is not outdoor fitness centre u see in play ground of h d b. it is an indoor fitness centre. They might have another name for it.

Maybe you can call your town council to find out more.

I believe these fitness centers are run by pap.
