Senior Care Centre
Empowering Our Seniors
To help our seniors age in place, SNM Senior Care Centres (SCCs) provide a communal space for them to enjoy group activities while receiving essential care services. Our centres offer full day programmes for seniors to interact, socialise and enjoy planned activities. a. Our programmes are suitable for seniors who require supervision while their caregivers are at work and centre-based care setting.

The aim of rehabilitation is to improve the individual’s functional status to the maximum level medically possible, and hence allow them to remain active in the community. Community rehabilitation services include Active rehabilitation, which aims to improve the client’s functional status; and Maintenance Exercises, which aims to reduce the client’s functional decline.
In collaboration with the Agency for Integrated Care (AIC), Sree Narayana Mission (Singapore) [SNM] will be offering a new Night Respite service for seniors requiring assistance in Activities of Daily Living (ADL) or coping with dementia with sleep-wake cycle issues.
