Imagine going without a bath in humid Singapore for a week, a month or even a year? This is the reality facing some bed-bound elderly, for whom having a warm bath daily at home is an impossible and luxurious task. Many of these elderly can only receive sponge or powder bath or wipe-down cleaning due to the constraints faced by their caregivers.

For Mdm Tan, 75, who injured her spine after a fall four years ago, the injury greatly impacted her mobility. Having no children of their own, Mdm Tan's husband is her sole caregiver. Even though Mdm Tan weighs 28kg, her husband is unable to carry her to the bathroom to shower her.

This is where the GoodLife! HomeBathing team from Montfort Care comes into the picture. The team now helps to bathe Mdm Tan on a bi-weekly basis. This arrangement has brought her some joy, and it provides some respite for her husband.

This home bathing service, not only provides cleaning for the elderly, but more important it brings comfort and restore the dignity of these individuals.

Help us to raise the funds needed to provide our bed-bound elderly the HomeBathing service, by making a donation now!
