In August 2016, Mr Ang Hiong Chiok, 70, suffered a stroke and was rushed to a hospital.

--

I used to wake up at 5.30am every morning for a walk at Labrador Park or Mount Faber with my wife. I led a healthy life. Why did I get a stroke? After my stroke, I was in a community hospital for 8 months. I could not walk, I could not articulate my words, I could not feed and clothe myself. How did I end up in this state?

After my stroke, I could not do many things. It became tough on my wife and thus I had to employ a domestic helper. My helper would assist me with daily activities such as eating, dressing and washing up. My wife would send me to (SLEC) Telok Blangah Centre for rehabilitation twice a week. At SLEC, I receive customised physiotherapy and occupational therapy sessions to strengthen my muscles. I always try my best during the session.

When I regain my mobility, I will accompany my wife on our daily morning walks again. The staff at SLEC are well-trained, kind and are friendly and always encouraging us during exercises.

Mr Ang's physical and mental conditions have improved remarkably through determination and hard work. He has renewed hope and confidence in his ability to walk again.

At SLEC, we serve many seniors like Mr Ang who once lost hope as a result of stroke, chronic illnesses, falls or accidents. Your donations will enable many more seniors to receive quality care and services on their journey to recovery and empowerment.

About the Charity

Founded in August 1999, St Luke's ElderCare (SLEC) is committed to caring for our seniors, through services provided at the centres and homes of our seniors. These services include maintenance day care, day rehabilitation, dementia care, nursing care, respite care, wellness programmes, home medical, home nursing, home personal care and home therapy. By the end of 2018, SLEC is expecting to operate 25 eldercare centres located in the community islandwide to reach out to more seniors and families in need. The services are intended to benefit those with physical disabilities as a result of stroke, falls or accidents, as well as the frail and lonely who have no one to look after them at home during working hours.
