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

We are committed to caring for elders in the community from all walks of life, races and religion, and elders who may have undergone post-operative procedures for stroke, fractures and/or falls. They may also have chronic diseases like Diabetes, Parkinson's, or are wheelchair-bound and require assistance with activities of daily living. We currently operate 22 eldercare centres and will continue to grow to 25 eldercare centres and a nursing home by 2020. We aim to actively engage seniors in physical and mental activities to prepare them for successful ageing, maintain the functional levels of the elderly who have suffered physical disabilities as a result of stroke, fall or accidents, and to care for seniors while their loved ones are at work. The goal is to help elders build their confidence and to experience the joy of ageing gracefully and successfully.
