PERSONAL CARE SERVICE (SENIORS)

Personal Care Service (Seniors) supports seniors in their home to achieve community living and maintain a level of independence and dignity. Our care service personnel will go to the residences to attend to seniors who are unable to take care of themselves and their physical needs, and assist them with activities of daily living such as bathing, toileting, dressing, and eating.

 

This is a pilot project that provides seniors with more holistic care to allow them to age gracefully in the community. A collaborative effort between AWWA and Temasek Cares, the TC-AWWA Care Close to Home programme uses centre-based services housed within HDB residential blocks to deliver care coordination and personal care services that help needy / low income seniors, aged 60 and above, to age at home within their community. It re-examines the current mode of service delivery by leveraging on existing services within the community to provide a ‘close to home’, client-centric services to the seniors. These include:

 

  • Dressing and Personal Hygiene
  • Ambulation and Mobility Transfers
  • Meals Preparation
  • Housekeeping
  • Grocery shopping
  • Medicine Management
  • Basic Health and Nursing Care
  • Strengthening exercises
  • Case Management
