On 26 September, we opened the doors of our renovated premises at our New Horizon Centre in Toa Payoh to our clients and caregivers. We also welcomed Defence Minister and MP for Bishan-Toa Payoh GRC, Dr Ng Eng Hen, who graced the occasion with his presence.
This Centre resembles a “home away from home”. With ADA’s focus to facilitate a Person-Centred Care approach, maximising space was our priority. The possibility of having a few smaller rooms for multi-purpose activities helped in this regard.
The pantry is now parked at the Centre of the facility, allowing clients to have easy access. Our new kitchen equipment enables us to have more opportunities for baking and cooking as our clients look forward to such sessions and indulging in their self- made treats over tea in the afternoon.
Impressed with the layout and the enthusiasm of the clients – who were clearly engaged in the activities that day – Dr Ng was sporting enough to take on a client in a challenge using a pair of chopsticks. No prizes for guessing who emerged the winner!
