Revived Jade Circle re-invents residential and community care with focus on autonomy, choices & dignity

The Lien Foundation, Khoo Chwee Neo Foundation, and The Salvation Army Peacehaven Nursing Home announced today the revival of Jade Circle. Originally announced in 2015, the project was placed on hold due to administrative hurdles. The project retains the original concept of having only single and twin-sharing rooms, but will also have a significantly bigger day-activity centre in keeping with the national push to enable the elderly to age in the community.

Within the residential section, Jade Circle will pioneer an anti-diaper, restraint-free care philosophy which is inspired by Japan's Morinokaze Nursing Home.

Genki Kakis go to Japan

The Lien Foundation announced a new 10-part series of short films and articles, Genki Kaki, which highlights the rich diversity of services for seniors in Japan and what Singaporeans can learn from them. The Foundation brought a film crew and two seniors - Elizabeth Seah, 62, and Jelly Jacintha Tan, 77, to Japan where they visited interesting elderly-friendly places like malls, restaurants and shopping streets, as well as aged care facilities.

Enabling Person-Centred Care through IT

Together with Pulsesync, the Foundation announced its new IngoT PCC (Person-Centred Care) system.
