Your generous donation will enable and empower Persons with Dementia to continue to live well.
We strive to do this through the creation of an ecosystem in which Persons with dementia (PWD), engaged meaningfully through strength-based approaches, can continue to live well with meaning and purpose in a nurturing environment.
To that end, Apex Harmony Lodge developed unique person-centred care models for both long term residential care and community care.
In our Lodge situated in Pasir Ris, residents of varying profiles and strengths are empowered, engaged and loved in Assisted Living, Supported Living, and Tender Loving Care Homes. Our residents are engaged meaningfully through a suite of psychosocial initiatives, each of the five strands aimed at differing strengths of each resident.
Our Day Care centre, a space for continuous learning, leisure and relationship building, engages elders with dementia, their caregivers as well as residents within the local community.
Therapy Through Work for Young Onset and Early Stage Dementia provides naturalised work therapy for PWD within the community. Beyond work, PWDs are further empowered to live with purpose through taking part in activities within the Lodge.
We are an Institution of Public Character partly funded by the Government. Visit our website at http://apexharmony.org.sg/
Stemming from our person-centred care philosophy, the Lodge provides models of care at three different levels of ability and strengths. Each care model is focused on bringing out the best of every individual.
Every activity is designed with therapeutic elements in mind, aimed at fulfilling unmet psychological needs of residents, such as attachment, inclusion and occupation.
Beyond design, each session is facilitated at levels appropriate to the individual's ability. Residents able to guide others are encouraged to do so, while those who enjoy self-engagement can participate meaningfully.
We believe there is an untapped creative in every person with dementia. Whether it is in music, visual arts or even narration, residents have demonstrated unique talents time and again.
This is why we design every activity with opportunities for creative expression in mind. Whether in physiotherapy, inter-generation bonding, or even work therapy, residents are encouraged to express themselves in as unique ways as possible.
Continuous learning should not stop after dementia diagnosis. Enthused residents have shown us that they are able to learn and enjoy new skills and activities.
We aim to provide ample opportunities for resident to keep on learning. For some, this means learning new skills, while for others, this could mean re-learning skills long thought forgotten.
