Our Campaign Storyends 30 Jul 2023, 11:59 PM
Singapore Christian Home is a non-profit nursing home that has been serving destitute individuals and those from low-income families for over 60 years. The home is in urgent need of replacing some of its essential facilities - a Combi oven, a dishwasher, and three Vital Signs Machines - which have been through wear and tear after being utilized non-stop for the past 10 years.
The Combi oven and dishwasher are essential for meal preparation for both residents and staff, while the Vital Signs Machines are important tools for nursing staff to monitor the physiologic condition of the residents. The home is facing increasing operational costs due to expanded services and the pandemic, and it needs to carry out various capital improvement projects.
This campaign aims to raise $40,000 to help Singapore Christian Home replace its essential facilities so that it can continue to carry out its core mission of providing medical and nursing care with love and compassion for those in need. By donating to this campaign, you can help ensure that the home can continue to care for the vulnerable and make a positive impact in the community.
On behalf of Singapore Christian Home and those we serve, we thank you for your support and generosity. Your donation is a testament to the kindness and compassion of our community.
About The Charity
Singapore Christian Home set up in the 1960's, is a not-for-profit nursing home, committed to the care of destitute and persons from low income families with long term medical and nursing needs.
In providing long term, respite and crisis-situation care, the Home offers :
- avenues of care option for frail and sick persons, regardless of age, with complex nursing care requirements, financial difficulties or no family support;
- care-givers respite to recharge or to attend to their personal needs; and
- assistance to families when normal care arrangements to the dependent members are disrupted
The Home's adult residents are largely 70 years and above, with a handful of centurions. They require constant care and supervision due to multiple chronic conditions.
In 2017, the Home, in response to the growing needs of medically fragile children and young persons whose families are unable to provide them with the level of care required, dedicated a ward for care of this cohort.
Each resident in the Home have long term care needs that become increasingly complex with increased frailty. The Home is often the place they will be in till they pass on. A multi-disciplinary team, complemented by dedicated volunteers, render constant care, emotional, psychological, social, pastoral and financial support to residents and their families.
Your donation to the Home will enable us to support many more individuals and families in need.
