Jamiyah Singapore Collaborates With Four Partners To Expand Eldercare Services
In expanding its eldercare services at Jamiyah Nursing Home (JNH), Jamiyah signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with National University Health System (NUHS), National Healthcare Group Diagnostics (NHG Diagnostics), Muslim Healthcare Professionals Association (MHPA), and the West Coast Constituency (WCC), at the official opening of the Home’s Senior Care Centre and Dementia Ward on Saturday, 25th February 2017.
“The collaboration with NUHS, NHG Diagnostics, MHPA, and the West Coast Constituency extends Jamiyah’s range of eldercare services to more people in need other than patients of JNH. We hope that with this integrated care, we can encourage a healthier lifestyle among the elderly residents in the West district of Singapore.” said Dr H M Saleem, Vice President I of Jamiyah Singapore.
With NUHS, the collaboration covers three areas: the Infectious Diseases Community Programme (IDCP), Chronic Diseases Self-Management Programme (CDSMP), and Specialist Outpatient Clinic (SOC) Appointment Consolidation.
For NHG Diagnostics, the collaboration will provide easy access to the community for Diabetic Foot Screening (DFS) and Diabetic Retinal Photography (DRP) services to residents both at the Home as well as residents in the West Coast area. The NHG Mobile Community Health Centre (CHC) bus will be parked at Jamiyah Nursing Home once a month to provide the services. This monthly engagement will also involve MHPA and WCC.
Mr S Iswaran, Minister for Trade and Industry (Industry), who was the Guest-of-Honour, witnessed the signing of MOU and officiated the opening of the Senior Care Centre and Dementia Ward at Jamiyah Nursing Home.
