Dementia Day Care: New Horizon Centres
The Alzheimer's Disease Association manages and supports the New Horizon Centres which provide day care services for people with dementia. The New Horizon Centres at Bukit Batok, Jurong Point, Tampines and Toa Payoh also offer an Early Dementia Programme for those at early stage of dementia.
In particular, our New Horizon Centre in Tampines is also a day rehabilitation centre for people with strokes and may require follow-up care after their discharge from hospital.
- To provide relief for caregivers
- To increase families' abilities to cope with and continue caring for people with dementia and/or physical disabilities
- To provide nursing care, occupational therapy, physiotherapy and social activities
The team of professionals in the centres includes doctors, occupational therapist, physiotherapist and nurses.
Each individual is considered unique and valuable. Therefore, there is an individualised care plan for each person. Clients are carefully assessed to determine their physical, cognitive and social functioning in order to put together an effective therapeutic care plan.
Activities at the Centres include:
- occupational therapy and physiotherapy
- group exercises
- group and individual games
- leisure and hobbies
- outings and excursions
The involvement of the family is crucial, hence regular feedback is given to the family. Caregivers are also encouraged to participate in our Caregiver Support Groups where information and sharing on caring for a person with dementia are provided.
Transport will be provided for those living within 10 km of the Centre.
Attendance fees are charged according to the level of government subsidies that the family is eligible for. The subsidy levels are determined through Means Testing, that are in line with guidelines from Ministry of Health. Lunch and two teas are provided and transport charges are based on the distance between the client's home and the Centre.
