Community Partner and Clients Show Appreciation to Our Therapists

Our therapists celebrating the annual Professional Day were pleasantly surprised when they received flowers specially made by clients from our community partner, SASCO DACE.

SASCO Day Activity Centre for the Elderly (SASCO DACE) is one of the 39 community partners of the SPD Therapy Hub. Our therapists conduct assessments as well as develop and implement individualised care plans for the centre’s clients and their caregivers. They also plan, implement and evaluate activities and exercises so that the clients can get the most out of every therapy session and interaction.

Our therapists celebrating the annual Professional Day on 5 September were pleasantly surprised when SASCO DACE’s staff and a client visited our headquarters to deliver gifts that their clients had specially made for our therapists.

Facilitated by an occupational therapist (OT) and care staff, clients in SASCO DACE’s dementia day care and integrated home and day care programmes made a total of 90 bright and colourful paper flowers as gifts in appreciation to our therapists.

SPD Therapy Hub senior manager Tay Hwee Lin was moved by the gesture. “We are touched that the clients put in much effort in making the flowers. It is heart-warming to know that they appreciated our therapists’ assistance and support,” said Hwee Lin.

SPD’s OT Joycelyn Lim, who facilitated the making of the flowers said: “The clients were always smiling brightly and happily when they successfully made a flower! I am glad that they enjoyed themselves.” Joycelyn further elaborated that the activity also helped to improve the clients’ motor skills and psychological wellbeing.
