Navigating the World Caring
老有所养 已达达人  

NWC Longevity Practice is started by Dr Ng Wai Chong, an established community aged-care physician.

We provide aged care consultancy, training, research, and direct clinical services. 

We are a member of the Singapore Centre for Social Enterprise (raiSE).

Before setting up his own practice, Dr Ng was Chief of Clinical Affairs at Tsao Foundation.

In his earlier years as a doctor in hospitals, Dr Ng enjoyed the clinical work in caring for frail seniors.

However, he felt that clinical work can be lacking in the holistic view of human suffering and cannot do enough to help.

Dr Ng set up NWC Longevity Practice, envisioning a world where people of all ages thrive until the very last days of their lives.
