We Serve The Vulnerable

Singapore Christian Home (SCH) is a 240-bed nursing home licensed by the Ministry of Health. Founded in 1960 and registered in 1977, SCH is known in the healthcare community for accepting difficult and challenging cases that are generally refused by other institutions. 

We are the only nursing home in Singapore to have a dedicated ward for medically fragile Children and Young Persons (CYP) in response to a pressing need in the community.

WE BELIEVE

Everyone deserves quality medical care, no matter their race, language, religion, or financial situation.

Our Home is dedicated to providing residential and respite nursing and medical care to those in need, including destitute individuals and those from very low-income families, regardless of race, language, religion or social background.

Beyond fulfilling basic physiological needs, we strive to deliver holistic, person-centred care, empowering our residents to make choices and treating them with dignity.

You Can
Make A Difference

At Singapore Christian Home, we extend our care beyond medically fragile adults to encompass Children and Young Persons (CYPs) with significant medical and nursing requirements.


HOW you can HELP

Join an existing programme as a volunteer

SCH's programmes are carefully tailored to cultivate a sense of love and belonging in the hearts of our residents. 

Our flagship programme 'Love At Work' involves close to 300 volunteers who come on a weekly basis to befriend, provide companionship, entertain, and educate our residents.

Another favourite among our Children & Young residents is our weekly 'Bedtime Stories' program, where as the name suggests, volunteers read bedtime stories and tuck the kids into bed just like any loving parent would.

More than just running programs, we seek to develop an environment akin to a warm household. Get in touch to find out more!

Give Generously

SCH is known in the healthcare community for accepting difficult and challenging cases that are typically declined by other institutions. These complex cases often require specialized machinery, a specialized nursing workforce, and a higher nurse-to-resident ratio, resulting in higher costs.

As you can imagine, providing this level of care for such cases requires significant amounts of resources. Would you partner us and give generously so that we further this cause?

What they say

Madam Poh

SCH Resident

At SCH, I received very good care from the doctors and nurses. I have been going for dialysis for almost 30 years. Each time when I feel very tired after my dialysis, I will want to quickly take my dinner and rest. They are all very understanding and caring. I like staying here and I feel happy staying here. When I go to the activity area, I will talk to my fellow residents and watch TV with them. Otherwise staying alone in bed the whole day can become boring.

MoTher of

 SCH Young Adult Resident

Singapore Christian home provides a 24/7 care to all residents here. For my daughter’s case, all of her basic needs need to be taken care of. I may not be able to accompany her throughout the life of my girl as I don’t know if I will leave first or she will leave first. So I feel that it is good that we have another team of people with nursing knowledge, with the know-how to handle my girl’s situation especially when she has multiple health conditions. I can see the nursing staff understand this girl well and they shower her with love. So this is something I appreciated very much.

NEHMIAH WONG

 Volunteer of iCare

I really enjoy coming here. I love to come here. I see the residents as part of my family. We had a celebration recently, and the staff passed me a note. It was written by the resident. In Chinese it says: “Thank you for all your hard work!” I think many of them may not have visits from the family regularly. Frequently, after our service, the resident will ask us, “When will you come again?” Sometimes when I say, “Good bye, see you next week!” they will hold our hands very tightly and will be reluctant to let go. You can feel that they are going to miss us.
