Churches in Singapore have come together to provide services to the elderly.

The LoveSingapore Eldercare Network, set up last year and launched officially today, has seen 45 churches team up with 21 eldercare organisations so that seniors can get help wherever they live.

People in need of help can call the church designated to coordinate services in their area.

Five churches have been picked to coordinate the delivery of services in five zones. They are Victory Family Centre (North), Living Sanctuary Brethren Church (North East), Bethesda Bedok-Tampines Church (East), Faith Community Baptist Church (Central) and Church of Our Saviour (West).
