They have aged.
He only came to see this truth when his mum was sick. He decided to make his parents his priority. He goes back to them after work, to dine with them or bring them out of the house -- small things that make his mum's day. He realised that he is happy when they are happy, the gratification from the invaluable family bond is much greater than anything else.
Currently, Chin Hock is working in St Luke's Hospital, where majority of the patients are elderly. In his work, he constantly hear of heartwarming stories about patients and their families. At times, he also witnesses how his ward colleagues treat their aged patients with tender loving care, just as they would unto their own parents and grandparents.
With May and June being the months dedicated to our mothers and fathers, Chin Hock would like to raise funds for St Luke's Hospital as a parents' day gift to his parents.
Join Chin Hock on his fundraising journey in celebration of Parents' Day. For every $20 donation or more, he would thank you with a copy of his photobook* entitled "Father, Mother".
Chin Hock is a recipient of the filial piety award conferred by Nanyang Confucian Association.
*Limited copies available. The books will be mailed out after the campaign ends.
About the Charity
St Luke's Hospital, named after the patron saint of the medical profession, was the first hospital in Singapore dedicated to the elderly sick. We have expanded our services beyond the elderly to enrich more lives. An Institution of a Public Character, we care for 2,000 inpatients and 2,000 outpatients each year, regardless of race, language or religion. As illnesses may be long and chronic, we care holistically for patients' physical, emotional and psychosocial well-being. Impactful and innovative in transforming community care, we were the first recipient of the President's Award for Social Impact (2012), and the first community hospital to receive the National Healthcare Innovation and Productivity Medal (National University Hospital - St Luke's Hospital Integrated Care Path, 2016).
