Senior Care Centre
Ren Ci’s Senior Care Centres (SCC) provide full day programmes for suitable seniors who require supervision while their caregivers are at work. By attending our SCC, our clients not only optimise their physical health, they are also able to receive psychosocial support to optimise their overall wellbeing and help them remain integrated within the community. Unlike our nursing home residents, SCC clients are mostly ambulant with some being wheelchair-bound. They may require some supervision while their caregivers are at work, need assistance with activities of daily living (ADL) and personal care needs or have recently been discharged from a hospital and possess good rehabilitation potential for further improvement in physical and functional status.
Co-located within our facilities, we currently operate SCCs at Ren Ci Community Hospital, Ren Ci @ Ang Mo Kio, Ren Ci @ Bukit Batok St. 52 and will have a fourth SCC at Ren Ci @ Woodlands when it operationalises in early 2024.
Our SCC provides the following services:
Day rehabilitation is for clients who are able to continue living in the community but require a few sessions of rehabilitation per week to optimise recovery.
Clients attend day care on week days to spend the day with us undergoing enriching activities under supervision of our staff, with rehabilitation and volunteer-led activities.
Clients diagnosed with dementia can enroll in Dementia Day Care, where specially designed activities with a greater focus on mental stimulation are conducted to delay the progression of dementia. The programme also includes the management of challenging behaviours exhibited by dementia clients through therapeutic or non-pharmacological activities.
Integrated Home and Day Care (IHDC)
Available at Senior Care Centre @ Novena only
IHDC supports seniors with multiple care needs and provides them with the flexibility of care at home, at our centre or a mix of both.
Clients who require nursing care such as wound dressing or stoma care can avail of these services at our senior care centre.
To enroll your loved one, you will need a referral from your doctor to assess your suitability for such services. Please speak to your care staff at the hospital that you or your loved one is staying, and he/she will assist you in submitting an application to Agency for Integrated Care (AIC).
