Tseng Wan Fen - Our Gentle Nurturer
Mdm Tseng was always dedicated to nurturing and caring for others, as a teacher, wife and mother of two, juggling between her passion as a teacher and responsibilities as a mother throughout most of her life. What free time she could find, she used to learn and play the piano.
After her retirement, however, as her dementia progressed, her ability to care for herself and others slowly declined. By the time she entered Apex Harmony Lodge, she was less engaged in activities that utilised her strengths.
Through conversations with her children that provided insight on her life history, our team of care staff created a plan to over time return her independence in caring for herself, while also engaging her in activities that utilised her talents and strengths.
Now, she can be found engaged in multiple in-Lodge activities, enjoying music with his husband during Circles of Life and nurturing young pre-schoolers in our Inter-Generation Bonding Programme. With ongoing physiotherapy, she has also regained some of her walking ability and continues to live an engaged and meaningful life.
Persons with dementia, engaged meaningfully through strength-based approaches in a nurturing environment, can continue to live well with meaning and purpose. Apex Harmony Lodge is a community committed to empowering lives affected by dementia to continue to living well.
Your generous donation will go into helping us enable and empowering Persons with Dementia such as Mdm Tseng, one of the 210 residents staying at our Lodge, to continue a life with meaning and purpose.
