Dear Family Care Partners,
Hope you are doing well. We are happy to bring you the news of another transformational work at Apex Harmony Lodge in the best interest for our beloved Residents and Day Care Elders living with dementia.
Apex Harmony Lodge, passionately known as the Lodge was established in 1999, and through the years the Lodge has undergone transformation in the way we care for People with Dementia (PWD) guided by our mission and operating philosophy. The transformation journey has blessed us with many opportunities to learn from our beloved elderly, family care partners like your good self and from experts in the field. To further improve our Person-Centred Care (PCC) to our residents, the management has decided to embark on a major undertaking, an Environmental Enhancement (EE) Project to improve and enhance its existing environment and facilities.
The EE Project seeks to improve the existing building premise and the garden so that the Residents can blissfully enjoy their stay in a safe, secure and conducive home that empower them physically, emotionally and spiritually.
This EE project would kick-off in Dec 2017 and is expected to take about 1.5 to 2 years to complete. Upon completion, our Residents will have a Home which is more enabling and empowering that supports them to live well. Key enhancements Residents can look forward to include personalised bedrooms, brighter environment with more natural light, more space for them to pursue their hobbies and socialise with others. Other highlights are brighter and enabling en-suite toilet, patios or faux balcony to bring the Residents closer to nature, and a sensory stimulating garden for them to explore and to take part in their preferred physically or cognitively stimulating activities.
Though this project can be complex, all preparations have been done to ensure quality of care is not compromised; existing daily activities would proceed as per normal or with minimal changes to its schedules / activities. The Lodge would ensure that the din, dust and debris are well controlled to minimise any discomfort to the residents.
The Lodge hopes for your kind understanding and support as we journey together to bring to the Residents an environment that is best suited for PWD and something to look forward to, that they could proudly call Home. We seek your understanding in putting up with slight inconveniences during the construction phase. We believe that you, like us, would want to do the best of whatever we could to serve the residents better within our means.
If you do have any queries regarding the EE project, please do not hesitate to contact the following and we would revert to you soonest possible:-
