Day centres for seniors allow your loved ones to interact, socialise and enjoy planned activities in a group setting while still receiving essential care services.

We support caregivers by offering senior day care, dementia day care, and day rehabilitation.

Rest assured that your loved ones are in good hands and well looked after so that they can live life to the fullest, regardless of age, or their health conditions.

Previously known as Silver Circle, NTUC Health has been running day centres for seniors in Singapore since 1999. Today, we have 22 centres across the island, providing:

SENIOR DAY CARE

Senior Maintenance Day Care

Adult day care has been proven to benefit both caregivers and seniors alike.

For seniors, senior day care activities provide them with opportunities to socialise with fellow seniors, pick up new skills, and optimise their general, physical and social well-being. For caregivers, it means a brief respite from their caregiving roles to minimise caregiver burnout.

By providing senior day care services, we ensure your loved ones enjoy the same quality of life even when their caregivers are away due to work or personal commitments. 

Our day centres for seniors offer:

  • Art and crafts, games, karaoke
  • Basic care needs such as support with activities of daily living, nutrition management, wound management, medication reminder and administration
  • Daily exercises such as stretching, moving around and strengthening activities to maintain joint flexibility
  • Festive celebrations
  • Linens for Life™ programme
  • Recreational activities such as inter-generational activities

DEMENTIA DAY CARE

Dementia Day Care

According to the Institute of Mental Health (IMH), one in 10 people aged above 60 suffer from dementia. The Straits Times also reported that 3 in 4 with dementia feel lonely and rejected.

At NTUC Health, we understand the emotional, social and psychological challenges that those with dementia face. That’s why our dementia day care is focused on helping dementia patients manage their condition to improve their well-being and quality of life.

Through cognitive exercises, physical therapy and social activities, we provide care and support to those with dementia so they can lead purposeful and fulfilling lives.

Our dementia day care services include a structured dementia programme specially designed to improve or maintain the mental and physical wellbeing of our seniors. Activities include:

  • Music therapy
  • Karaoke sessions
  • Playing musical instruments
  • Mind-stimulating games such as BINGO, memory games, “Spot The Difference”
  • Reminiscence therapy
  • Sorting activities
  • Art and colouring therapy
  • Physical activities to encourage movement and train coordination
  • Support for caregivers of seniors with dementia
  • Inter-generational sessions

DAY REHABILITATION

Day Rehabilitation

We believe that those with physical disabilities and seniors suffering from physical impairment due to stroke, Parkinson’s disease or other injuries have the potential for recovery.

For seniors who are well, we aim to maintain their functional ability and delay physical deterioration due to ageing. 

That’s why we provide a range of day rehabilitative services aimed at maximising mobility and regaining functional abilities for independent living.  

We provide day rehabilitation for the following:

  • Strokes and fractures
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Recent operations requiring follow-up rehabilitation such as knee or hip replacement

OUR AWARDS

Best Day Care Programme 2017

Previously known as Silver Circle, NTUC Health’s  “Celebration of Life” won the “Best Day Care Programme award” in 2017 which recognises the most dynamic centre-based activities and programmes which improve the overall wellbeing for older adults.

“Celebration of Life” aims to promote physical independence, enhance mental well-being and encourage social integration for our seniors.


The Linens for Life™ project emerged as a finalist for the “Best Active Ageing Programme” at the 6th Eldercare Innovation Awards in 2018.

Seniors at NTUC Health’s day care centres transformed used linen such as bedsheets, curtains and staff uniforms from hotels into tote bags, stuffed owls and jumbo jet soft toys that were put up at the lobby of Crown Plaza Changi Airport, and Christmas stockings that were given to guests of Shangri-La Hotel during the festive season.
