Dear Mr Devendran,

I hope this email finds you well. My name is Joanna and I am the niece of the late Mr Tan Siak Hee who used to be a resident in the Sree Narayana Mission in Yishun. My uncle was there less than a year before his passing in May 2022.

I am writing to you as I have personally seen the care that has been given to my uncle during his stay there. From the time he was admitted to the home, we have had many opportunities to speak with him and all the staff were very helpful in assisting our calls. My uncle was unable to walk and was weak. He did not speak much but the staff were helpful and assisted him. He was very encouraged and was happy in his final year of life.

I want to specially mention the staff on level 3 as they were the ones who took good care of him and constantly updated me when there were any changes in his condition. Dela Peña Christopher was the staff nurse I spoke to very often when I called my uncle. He was friendly and would answer my queries on my uncle’s well-being. I appreciate it very much. Even when my uncle passed, he and two other staff went to attend my uncle’s funeral day after he passed on and brought us a card which the staff made with the little time they had.

Special thanks to the social worker, Ms Yoges, for assisting us in getting my uncle baptized according to his wishes despite COVID restrictions back then. Ms Yoges always responded to my queries and updates promptly. Even when my uncle passed, she reached out to me when she was on leave. The personal touch of the staff gave me confidence that my loved ones was well taken care of.

It brought me some peace and joy knowing that while my uncle was alive, despite not having any immediate family by his side, he was never alone because of the Sree Narayana Mission family that he found in the staff. Thank you for all the great work that you and your staff has done and is still doing. My uncle and I had an agreement to donate all his savings, little it may be, to Sree Narayana Mission for all the good work you have done and all the care and love he has received. I have contacted Ms Yoges with regards to this and will be making the donation today as I have finally settled my uncle’s estate. With the little we can give; we hope it can do some good. May God bless everyone.

Best regards,
Joanna Jael
