About Campaignends 31 Dec 2017, 11:59 PM
Caring for Mdm Aminah became more demanding over the years with her emotional outbursts and hurtful words. The downward spiral started in 2014 when Mdm Aminah was diagnosed with early stage dementia. Additionally, Mdm Aminah was prone to falls, which resulted in a fractured femur, dislocated wrist and multiple head injuries. Mdm Aminah's doctor recommended to source for a day care centre as staying alone at home was dangerous.
In September 2017, Mdm Aminah started day care at St Luke's ElderCare (SLEC) Telok Blangah Centre and felt anxious going to an unfamiliar location and being cast aside. Her deepest fear was not being able to see her family again.
But a joyful return from her first day at the centre dispelled all fears as Mdm Aminah shared stories of interesting activities and the good friends she bonded with. She also shared how the staff lovingly eased her anxiousness and showered her with care.
Now the family experiences a peace of mind and their bond has also strengthened. Any time spent together is now filled recounting wonderful stories of friendship and activities.
During Giving Week 2017 and the Christmas' season of giving, let us not forget the many more families like Sarina's who need our support. Make a difference by giving generously today!

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.
