Tembusu Eldercare Centre
In March 2013, 4S collaborated with the Agency for Integrated Care (AIC) to implement the Singapore Programme for Integrated Care for the Elderly (SPICE) in Eunos Crescent. With the support from the Ministry of Health, Assoc Prof Fatimah Lateef, MP for Marine Parade Group Representations Constituency and the local grassroots organisations, 4S implemented SPICE at Block 3 Eunos Crescent in December 2013 and named the programme Tembusu Eldercare Centre (SPICE) or TEC in short.
In July 2018, 4S collaborated with AIC to implement the Integrated Home and Day Care (IHDC) Packages to provide the flexibility to get a different combination of care services in their homes, at a nearby day-care centre, or both, depending on their needs. The care needs will be reviewed regularly to ensure the care caters to the changing needs of the seniors over time. Tembusu Eldercare Centre (SPICE) was renamed Tembusu Eldercare Centre to better reflect the services it provided.
With this seamless and holistic care package, frail seniors who might otherwise enter a nursing home are able to continue to live at home with their loved ones. Caregivers are also supported throughout the care journey.
To provide affordable, reliable and professional day care service in a safe, clean and caring environment
