MWS CEO Junie Foo participated in a panel discussion at the Community Care SPRINT Forum 2022, organised by the Agency for Integrated Care (AIC) and held from 18 to 21 Oct at the Suntec Convention Centre.
In line with the theme “Reimagining the Future of Community Care with Healthier SG”, the discussion centred on the role the community care sector plays in promoting Healthier SG, a reform of Singapore’s healthcare system that focuses on preventive care for residents and promoting healthier lifestyles.
Junie called for stronger integration of health and social services to support ageing in place for seniors with multiple morbidities.
At the event, MWS Bethany Nursing Home – Choa Chu Kang also bagged the Community Care Excellence Awards for its pneumonia prevention project to reduce the rates of pneumonia among high-risk residents at the Nursing Home.
