In expanding its eldercare services at Jamiyah Nursing
Home (JNH), Jamiyah signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with National
University Health System (NUHS), National Healthcare Group Diagnostics (NHG
Diagnostics), Muslim Healthcare Professionals Association (MHPA), and the West
Coast Constituency (WCC), at the official opening of the Home’s Senior Care
Centre and Dementia Ward on Saturday, 25th February 2017.
“The collaboration with NUHS, NHG Diagnostics, MHPA,
and the West Coast Constituency extends Jamiyah’s range of eldercare services
to more people in need other than patients of JNH. We hope that with this
integrated care, we can encourage a healthier lifestyle among the elderly
residents in the West district of Singapore.” said Dr H M Saleem, Vice
President I of Jamiyah Singapore.
With NUHS, the collaboration covers three areas: the
Infectious Diseases Community Programme (IDCP), Chronic Diseases
Self-Management Programme (CDSMP), and Specialist Outpatient Clinic (SOC)
For NHG Diagnostics, the collaboration will provide
easy access to the community for Diabetic Foot Screening (DFS) and Diabetic
Retinal Photography (DRP) services to residents both at the Home as well as
residents in the West Coast area. The NHG Mobile Community Health Centre (CHC)
bus will be parked at Jamiyah Nursing Home once a month to provide the
services. This monthly engagement will also involve MHPA and WCC.
Mr S Iswaran, Minister for Trade and Industry
(Industry), who was the Guest-of-Honour, witnessed the signing of MOU and
