Who We Are
Tseng Wan Fen - Our Gentle Nurturer

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.

Ngm Su - Our Resident Explorer

Mr Ngm was always an outgoing and adventurous individual, which was why he particularly enjoyed his previous career as a welder on a ship. Even after he left that job, he continued his hobby of exploring, collecting items from the community which he'd try to repair at home.

Kon Sew Ling - Our Resilient Hustler

Mdm Kon always believed in the value of working hard. From clerical work to a part-time stint in McDonalds, to eventually a funeral procession's percussion player, Mdm Kon has demonstrated her adaptability and openness to a wide variety of good, honest work. Even after being diagnosed with dementia and thereafter residing in Apex's Gerbera Home, she continued to verbalise her desire to work.

Niam Boon Heng - Our Talented Musician

A motivated learner, Mr Niam always found meaning in picking up new skills on his own. Without formal courses or lessons, he learnt how to play the harmonica, accordion, piano, and even learnt English with only a dictionary as his teacher. In his pursuit of musical interests, Mr Niam spent his free time composing new songs and participating in stage performances in his old neighbourhood.

Molly Loh - Our Dancing Queen

When she still resided in Gerbera, one of Apex's Assisted Living Homes, Mdm Molly was the Home's best dancer, always eager to teach any staff willing to learn. A conscientious, self-engaged lady, she took great pride in everything that she did, including dancing, artwork, and even the household chores she helped out in.

Jacob - Our Energetic Go-getter

Jacob used to be an operations manager at a shipyard, leading a happy and meaningful life. He spent his free time swimming and taking care of his dog. All of that changed when he was diagnosed with Dementia four years ago.
