About Campaignends 29 Sep 2018, 11:59 PM
Younger persons are now becoming affected by dementia earlier, due to our lifestyle, diet and genetic inheritance. Persons from age 40 are now being diagnosed with dementia, and we need to develop ways to retain as many abled years as possible.
By engaging in our various therapy programmes, we can stimulate them cognitively and also give them a sense of dignity when they complete tasks assigned. Even more importantly, we are able to give hours of respite care weekly to their caregivers.
Help us to enable dementia patients and their caregivers to live well!
About the Charity
Apex Harmony Lodge (AHL) is a community committed to empowering lives affected by 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.
