Recovering through Strong Support

A member of REACH Senior at Jalan Membina since 2016, Mr Yeow’s health took a sharp decline in 2021, where he was repeatedly hospitalised due to comorbidities and heart failure. Furthermore, he was even admitted into the ICU with the risk of multiple organ failure. 

Thankfully, the RS team was there to render assistance and support throughout this trying time. After his bout in the ICU, the RS team continued to assist him in his daily living, such as helping with meals, to get him settled back to full health. Mr Yeow also returned to participate in programmes such as Uncle Time. He reconnected with his friends at the centre and had a volunteer Tele-Befriender assigned to him for weekly catchups. Additionally, he was a beneficiary of the Grace AOG’s “Tree of Hope” initiative, where he was blessed with a microwave oven for his meals. 

With his health stabilised, Mr Yeow continues to participate in activities and keeps in touch with his friends in the community.
