Description of Organization
St Luke’s ElderCare is placed in the continuum of care for the elderly between the community hospitals and homes. We deliver a full range of integrated services and programmes for our clients including maintenance day care, day rehabilitation, dementia care, nursing care, respite care and wellness activities.

These services are designed to benefit the elderly who have suffered 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 during working hours. We offer the following facilities and services:

22 centres located island-wide
Gym equipment*
Consultation Rooms for clients to receive centre-based nursing*
Enhanced Dementia Friendly Rooms*
Open space within a confined area for group activities

OUR MISSION
To be a Christian healthcare provider enriching lives in the community

OUR VISION
Transforming Community Care

 

Intended use of funds through the YFC 2019 programme
St Luke’s ElderCare (SLEC) will like to use these funds to bring the elders who are frail, lonely and suffering from dementia out for outings, as they do not have many opportunities to venture out of the daycare centres due to the high cost (wheelchair transport, meals and entrance fees) and manpower requirements involved for outings. In the past, SLEC used to tap on funding to enable these elders to go out for outings. However, the application criteria has changed, and we are no longer able to tap on the funding. The funds that are raised, can be divided among our 22 centres, plus a nursing home operational in May 2020. This fundraising is especially crucial as outings act as a platform for the elders to be socially included to the community, especially for the elders in the Nursing Home, who may be physically, socially and emotionally isolated due to their medical condition. It is also an opportunity for the elders to visit places that they have never been before or be reconnected to the places that were once so familiar to them.

 

Engaging and involving the YFC participants
YFC teams can be engaged through the below:

1. Centre volunteering to understand more about the services and beneficiaries that SLEC serves
2. Take elders out for outing to understand requirements about fundraising cause
3. Volunteer training to understand how to befriend and communicate with elders
4. Review and supervision to keep track of progress, and drive project forward
