Creating Dementia Friendly Community

We believe that a dementia friendly community (DFC) co-created by members of society and service providers would enable and empower persons with dementia and their caregivers to live well with accessible supports and resources to live a normalised life.

Here at Apex Harmony Lodge, our nursing and allied health team extends our support and services to PWD living in the community through Dementia Day Care, TTW YES (Therapy through Work for People with Young Onset and Early Stage Dementia) services, and caregiver support program.

Through these services, we invite, share, facilitate and empower members of community, businesses and institutes as partners in understanding, supporting and providing opportunities for PwD, and embrace individuals affected by dementia as an integral part of the society.

Dementia Day Care

Our dementia day-care services are for persons with dementia who are interested in participating in activities and enjoying social interactions. Here at our day care, we believe each individual is unique. Every person is individually known and appreciated. In knowing our clients, we are able to foster strong relationships and provide personalised care.

In a home away from home, people with dementia and their families will have the chance to relax, and connect to each other through a wide range of activities and programs from which they can choose according to their own needs and likes.

With an open-club concept, our day-care welcomes various members of the community, family members, and friends to build nurturing relationships with our beloved day-care elders.

Caregiver Support

Empowered and committed caregivers are key success factors to empower PWD living well at home. It is also the backbone of a dementia friendly community. Through the above services, Apex Harmony Lodge endeavours to continually support and connect caregivers with the world of dementia and resources available in the community.
