85-year-old Mdm Cheng loved to dance and sing in her younger days. Unfortunately, she had a bad fall and became wheelchair-bound. Today she is cared for by MWS Bethany Nursing Home – Choa Chu Kang. Mdm Cheng is grateful for the thoughtful and professional care that she receives. “I feel bad whenever the nurses have to clean up after me. Yet they have never once been upset with me, always assuring me it is alright. I guess that’s what being family is like.”
The Home is now undergoing care remodelling to create a ‘Home Within The Home’. This includes upgrading existing wards to 5-bedder ‘family units’, each equipped with a cosy dining area and personal space. Dementia-friendly features are being added to support a growing number of seniors with the condition. MWS Bethany Nursing Home serves more than 280 residents who are from low-income families or have no next of kin. They are either bedridden or wheelchair-bound, and require intensive nursing care and help with activities of daily living which include feeding, dressing, grooming, toileting and moving about.
Give frail and poor seniors like Mdm Cheng Chee the gift of living in dignity and comfort. Thank you for your generosity and compassion!
