Centre Based Services
Lentor Senior Care Centre
Lentor Senior Care Centre (LSCC) is nestled in natural greenery between the Ang Mo Kio and Yishun housing estates. It provides social care and wellness services for seniors during the day. By providing person-centered individualised care, we aim to help our seniors lead high quality and meaningful lives. At LSCC, we try to help our seniors age-in-place and remain integrated within the community by optimizing their functional abilities, providing supervised care and encouraging them to remain independent as long as possible.
We also hope to provide peace of mind for the caregivers of our clients, who can be assured that their loved ones are enjoying meaningful activities, social interaction and physical exercise at our LSCC Senior Day Care programme. Clients who are assessed to benefit from rehabilitation may also enrol in our Day Rehabilitation Service. We provide convenient and seamless transport services to and fro LSCC, thus reducing caregiver stress from logistical arrangements for care.
LSCC is co-located with The Lentor Residence, our 208-bed nursing home. Thus our LSCC clients can enjoy easy access to the full suite of services offered by The Lentor Residence for Residential Medical and Nursing care, Respite Care and Home Care services.
LSCC currently provides the following services:
- Day Rehabilitation Service
- Senior Day Care
Day Rehabilitation Service
For many clients, rehabilitation may help them to improve their functional status and physical strength. This is especially crucial for clients who are recovering from stroke or from an injury such as leg fracture after a fall. We have a strong team of Alllied Health staff comprising Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists who are registered with the Allied Health Professions Council (AHPC), and Therapy Aides. Our Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists will do a thorough assessment for our clients upon admission, and prescribe an individualised programme to achieve the rehabilitation goals of each client.
You or your loved one may benefit from the Day Rehabilitation Service if:
- You would like to improve your functional status after a stroke, traumatic head injury or spinal injury
- You have an illness that has affected your function such as dementia or Parkinson’s disease
- You have a history of falls or are fearful of falling.
