Mdm J (on the bed) is 67 years old and bedbound. Her husband takes care of her including changing her soiled diapers. He is using his savings to pay all the bills and now has very little left. Mdm J needs diapers, milk feeds and other consumables. Our SATA CommHealth nurse helps to shower Mdm J and take care of her feeding tube.

Her husband says that he is getting older and is worried about how to take care of Mdm J. His main worry is that his wife has milk feeds to drink. He shared that he can go hungry but not his wife. She cannot swallow and needs a tube to be fed.

Mdm J only responds to her husband whenever he talks to her. She is unable to talk or move much. Sometimes she feels pain when moved.

Despite all these, the husband said that he will never leave his wife and he will take care of her no matter what. Our homecare nurses can sense that they are a very loving couple and treasure each other very much. He is worried that as he grows older, he may not be able to take care of her one day. He is ok to share their story as he feels strongly that donations can enable SATA CommHealth to help others like them.

Our homecare nurses do about 700 home visits a month. Many of our patients cannot afford to pay for their services. We need donations to help more people like them. Please donate $4 or more to help. Every dollar counts and no amount is too small.

Thank you for your generous donations.

About the Charity

HERE TO CARE for the health of seniors and vulnerable in the community.

SATA CommHealth was established in 1947 as a charity healthcare organisation fighting against tuberculosis in the early days. The organisation has since evolved to become a comprehensive and quality healthcare provider serving seniors and vulnerable in the community.

We serve our beneficiaries through community events, subsidised care at our medical centres as well as home and centre-based services which include homecare, doctors-on-wheels, day rehabilitation centres and Fernvale Community Hub.

With the COVID-19 pandemic evolving, more resources are required to care and serve the underprivileged for their medical and social needs, while fulfilling our prime duties as Public Health Preparedness Clinics (PHPC) supporting MOH, in managing patients with acute respiratory infection (ARI) symptoms at all our medical centres. SATA CommHealth has also provided X-rays services through our mobile buses at Singapore Expo earlier this year.
