As we keep ourselves fit and healthy, we should not neglect the well-being of people around us. Games 1 and 2 are designed by Sengkang Health’s Occupational Therapists to create awareness and experience how the elderly and people with disabilities carry out common everyday activities.

Strengthening or conditioning our body is important to prevent injuries. Games 3 and 4 are designed by Sengkang Health’s Physiotherapists to introduce fun and easy exercises that involve buddy work.

Diabetes is a growing problem in Singapore today. It can deeply affect one’s quality of life if not well-controlled. The Health Promotion Board will be conducting interactive games to share healthy tips such as choosing wholegrain food, exercising and stress-relieving activities to prevent diabetes.

Playing sports is a great way to keep ourselves healthy and bring the community together. ActiveSG by Sport Singapore will be showcasing these sports in various formats for the community to experience and share the joy of living better through sport.
