Dementia Day Care
The Apex Harmony Lodge Dementia Day Care (DDC) has been operating since 1999, serving about 25 Day Care Elders ( DCE ) staying within the East area. In our DDC, we want to instil a club and exclusive membership experience for our clients, for them to look forward to coming to our DDC and enjoy their time here.
Using a multi-disciplinary care approach, we work closely with Physiotherapist and Occupational Therapist to assess clients’ functional capabilities, sensory preferences and interests. Family members also provide invaluable information about their loves ones. Using the multiple sources of information, we get to know each Day Care Elder deeply, enabling person-centred care planning to design appropriate responsive program, co-create the environment best for each. Each individual’s progress is continually tracked and shared with his or her caregivers.
In our DDC, clients are invited to join a selection of vibrant activities that are intentionally designed based on clients’ specific interests and capability, for the purpose of maximizing meaningful engagement. We want to create a nurturing social environment that empowers not only the clients but also the care staff, family members and members of the community.
