Protecting Ageing And Vulnerable Widows
Through our programs in support of the ageing, Legacy aims to provide comfort and security to those who find themselves alone and vulnerable. At Legacy, we are committed to helping widows live full and happy lives despite their loss. Care is provided on the basis of need. While some widows require little more than advice, others require more extensive assistance e.g. pension's advocacy, providing safety and security, relieving financial hardship, combating social isolation and providing medical care. Regardless of the level of care required, Legacy is committed to ensuring no widow of a deceased veteran will ever face life's challenges alone.
Caring For Dependants With Disabilities
At Legacy, we believe that people with disabilities have an inherent right to the same opportunities as others, Our programs link people with community and special facilities in a bid to improve their quality of life, promote a healthy lifestyle, reduce social isolation, and provide support for carers. Furthermore, Legacy also offers financial and organisational assistance when needed.
