The Singapore Cheshire Home
The Singapore Cheshire Home was founded in 1957 with the aim to provide a “home” for the care of the severely physically disabled having no or limited means and whose families, if any, are unable to provide adequate care.
Today the Singapore Cheshire Home runs a Residential Home with a capacity for 90 residents who suffer mainly from muscular dystrophy/atrophy, spastic, cerebral palsy, deformities, spinal/head injuries etc. They receive nursing care, physiotherapy and occupational therapy, handicraft, computer practices as well as social and recreational activities.
We also manage a Day Care Centre for the rehabilitation and care of a daily average of 20 non-residential physically disabled clients. Majority of them suffer from cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury, stroke, head injury, muscular dystrophy etc. We encourage and enable these physically disabled clients to achieve, through, rehabilitation, their maximum independence so that they may enjoy happier and as near-normal lives as possible within the community. Services provided to the clients include occupational therapy, physiotherapy, training in daily living skills, creative arts and crafts as well as social and recreational activities.
