HOW WE HELP
With Love and Warmth
Singapore Christian Home (SCH) is a 240-bed not for profit nursing home licensed by the Ministry of Health. Registered in 1977, SCH provides residential and respite nursing and medical care to destitute and persons from very low income families. In addition to frail adults, the Home specifically caters to children and young adults requiring long term nursing care and dialysis patients.
The Home welcomes partnering with corporations, institutions and individuals to bring in to the much needed resources to support the operational costs of running the Home.
What they say
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.
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.
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.
