WHAT WE DO

MWS Bethany Nursing Home – Choa Chu Kang served 336 residents in FY18/19. 54% require maximum nursing care and are totally dependent on Activities of Daily Living (such as feeding, turning, bathing, toileting, and clothing) and 44% are wheelchair or bed-bound.

Priority is given to those who are destitute and members of very low-income families who need nursing care and have no alternative home care arrangements.

Residents are admitted through referrals from Medical Social Workers of acute hospitals or polyclinics through the Agency for Integrated Care.
