About Us

All Saints Home is a Voluntary Welfare Organisation (VWO) that provides comprehensive and professional eldercare services to the aged of all backgrounds. We are firmly anchored on our mission to provide quality care, bring joy and comfort, and honour the dignity of residents in a caring Christian environment. Over the past 30 years, we have built a reputation for our commitment to deliver the highest standards of professional eldercare - with love, sincerity and purity. By God’s grace, we will continue to do so, and extend our reach to positively impact the lives of those in need. In everything that we do, there is only one aim - to be a shining testimony of God’s great love and compassion in eldercare.

History and Founder

Brief History of the Establishment of All Saints Home

In 1981 Bethel Presbyterian Church established a preaching station at the Chapel. It grew to become a separate congregation in 1990, and subsequently an independent church in 1995. It was given permission to temporary use the Chapel for Sunday Services.

All Saints Memorial Chapel has significantly contributed to community social welfare. The ancillary hall was converted into a 30-bed nursing home called All Saints Home in 1986 to serve the old and sick. It was well received by the public and by the Ministry of Health (MOH).

In 1999, MOH proposed that we build a modern 179-bed Nursing Home at Tampines Street 44 to replace the Home in Hougang. The building and equipment cost amount to $9.9 million. The new Home at Tampines was officially opened by the Minister For National Development, Mr. Mah Bow Tan on November 4, 2001.

On January 20, 2000, we submitted an application to the URA to build five blocks of 2-storey columbarium on the site of the old Home at Hougang. This was turned down by the URA on the grounds that the site had been rezoned as a place of worship in 1998. Subsequent appeals were all unsuccessful.

Consequently, we decided to submit plans to rebuild the Hougang Home. Praise God, in September 10, 2001 and January 15, 2002, MOH and URA approved the plans. All Saints Home (Hougang) was completed in July 2004. The 3-storey Nursing Home has 144 beds. The Basement includes a Memorial Hall with four chambers totalling 9050 niches. The building and equipment cost amount to $7.5 million. It is a double blessing that the Home and the Columbarium extension could be built together to serve the public. President S R Nathan unveiled the memorial plaque on the March 11, 2005.

Reverend Lee Huai Kwang (7.4.1918 – 25.11.2005)

Rev. Lee Huai Kwang was born of a poor family in Jin Sha Village, near Shantou, in southern China. He became a preacher at Zion Church in Shantou after graduating from Barbour College in 1938. He married Miss Chan Cheng Leong in 1939 and came to Singapore with his family in 1947. He was first assigned by the Presbyterian Synod to serve as preacher at Holy Light Church in Johore Bahru. In 1950 he became the preacher at Bethel Presbyterian Church in Singapore. He was ordained in 1971 and retired as Senior Minister in 1991. However, he continued to serve Bethel and beyond until he was called home to eternal rest.

In 1951 God provided the opportunity for Rev. Lee to be principal of Min Sin School and still serve in the Church. At the time Bethel was unable to support its preacher. In 1973 Rev. Lee gave up the principal position in Min Sin School to concentrate fully in church work.

During his 55 years of service at Bethel, 23 years in a honorary capacity, the church grew from a Teochew congregation with less than 20 families to its present three congregations worshipping also in Mandarin and English. Rev. Lee valued Christian discipleship. In those days when Christian teach materials were scarce, he wrote and compiled teaching materials to benefit Bethel members. These were published in 8 volumes. He was caring and dedicated to church members and was well loved by them.

Rev. Lee played a pivotal role in turning around the fledgling Li Sun High School (set up in 1965 by the Synod) into the present-day Presbyterian High School. In 1976, against all odds, he founded All Saints Memorial Chapel (ASMC) with support from Bethel and some other churches, pioneering the practice of Christian cremation in Singapore. In 1987 he founded All Saints Home at Poh Huat Road in response to the increasing need to help the aged sick. A new Home in Tampines in 2001, with subsidy from the Ministry of Health, and the redevelopment of the Poh Huat Road Home in 2005, affirmed his foresight.

In his years of service to God, Rev. Lee demonstrated vision, compassion and determination in leading Bethel and in responding to the changing needs of Singapore’s Christian community and beyond. He displayed an indefatigable spirit, tenacity and an ability to inspire, persuade and generate support for his ideas and to raise the necessary funds. This enabled him to achieve significantly in his calling as pastor as well as in his social and community service. In 2002 he was awarded the Public Service Star (BBM) by the Singapore Government in recognition of his contributions to society.

Praise be to God. Amen.

OUR VISION
To be a shining testimony of God's great love and compassion in eldercare

OUR MISSION
We provide quality care, bring joy and comfort, and honour the dignity of residents in a caring Christian environment.

Corporate Profile

All Saints Home was founded in 1986 by the late Reverend Lee Huai Kwang, who saw a growing need for nursing care in Singapore. Eager to help the elderly, Reverend Lee established a 30-bed home at Poh Huat Road. Since then, All Saints Home has grown steadily with capacity expansion and new facilities. Today, with four homes strategically located in different parts of Singapore, and a total bed capacity of 734 beds, we provide comprehensive and professional care services that are extended to elderly of all backgrounds.

Our services include residential, respite and day care, with care plans that are customised to meet the needs of each resident or client. We will soon include home-based care to provide clients with a complete range of care services in the comfort of their homes.

Message from Chairman

“You are to rise in the presence of the elderly and honour the old”

In the past 29 years, All Saints Home has and will continue to put the vision of honouring God’s great love and compassion in our hearts as we share our core expertise in eldercare, and positively impact the lives of people in need. I am pleased that All Saints Home has made good headway in executing our expansion plans as we extend a helping hand to more elderly in Singapore.

The Bible says, “You are to rise in the presence of the elderly and honour the old”. Regardless of race and social status, the commitment to our residents remains: To provide quality care, bring joy and comfort, and honour their dignity in a caring Christian environment.

As we strive to render the highest standards of professional care, we also want to ensure that All Saints Home remains a happy place for our staff to work in, and a conducive place for them to develop their careers. We participated in the ILTC Excellence Awards by showcasing a project “Power to the People, Harnessing Electronic Human Resource” that highlighted our E-HR services available to staff.

We have also been awarded the Bronze Award for the Singapore Health Award 2014, distinguishing All Saints Home as a caring employer who values employees’ health and well-being.

On behalf of my fellow board members, I would like to thank sponsors and donors for supporting our cause. With your generosity, we raised over S$780,000 in 2014. These proceeds will go a long way in funding our operations as we continue to widen the depth and breadth of our eldercare services. We look forward to forging stronger partnerships with grassroots and other organisations to better serve the local communities.

I would also like to thank the Founder of All Saints Home’s Volunteers Group, Mr Edmund Quek and his team for adding vibrancy and touching the hearts of our residents every week, rain or shine. Sincere appreciation also goes to many other volunteers from the community, churches, and various organisations who have given much of themselves to bless our residents and staff.

To the management team and staff, thank you for your dedication and hard work. Let’s continue to put our best foot forward to be a shining testimony of God’s great love and compassion in eldercare.

Chairman

Message from CEO

2014 and 2015 were exciting years for All Saints Home. The management and staff displayed strong camaraderie as we worked together as a team to prepare for the opening of our new Centres in Yishun and Jurong East, as well as improve the services of our current Centres at Tampines and Hougang.

Extending our reach
After months of hard work, All Saints Home (Yishun) opened its door to the first resident on 23 March 2015. All Saints Home (Jurong East) followed closely and commenced operations in September 2015. Our bed capacity was doubled to 734 beds, compared to one year ago. To support our expanded operations, staff strength will grow from 300 at present, to about 500 in six months’ time.

Our new Centre in Yishun reignites the kampong spirit in the neighbourhood. Its community garden encourages residents and volunteers to plant and harvest their favourite fruits and vegetables, while its soup kitchen serves nutritious hot meals to the needy. We will continue to work closely with service partners around Yishun to create a village for all ages. Our Jurong East Centre, on the other hand, have a dementia ward, and a reminiscent walkway. At Tampines, we expanded our current day care and day rehabilitation centre to a more comprehensive senior care centre in February 2015. The latter provides day services for clients with dementia and those who require centre-based nursing care. Through these initiatives, we hope to extend our reach and share God’s love with more elderly in different parts of Singapore.

Over the past 29 years, All Saints Home has built a steady track record in caring for the elderly. By God’s grace, we want to continue to extend our expertise and positively impact the lives of those in need. The team is energised to deliver the highest standards of professional eldercare - with love, sincerity and purity.

Plans are underway for All Saints Home to spread our wings beyond residential, respite and day care into homecare. By providing a complete range of home-based nursing care, we want our clients to be well taken care of, and age gracefully in the comfort of their own homes.

Building a happy home
Apart from raising the hardware of our capabilities, we place equal emphasis in people development as we continue to explore ways to attract committed talents and better-qualified medical, nursing and other staff to join us. What makes a happy home is more than just the facilities, services and environs. Our staff delivering the service, residents receiving our care, and volunteers helping out at our Centres should feel the love all around.

We have recently rejuvenated our core values – CARE - to guide our nurses, administration and operations staff, and the management team in their daily work. We aim to deliver the All Saints Home brand of care services, and engage our fellow colleagues with Compassion and love that come from our hearts. We want to give the Assurance to residents that they are well-taken care of by our team of skilled professionals, and gain the trust of their family members and loved ones. Staff can also be assured that their welfare is of top priority to the management. Regardless of backgrounds, we Respect one another, forge strong ties at All Saints Home and honour the dignity of our residents. Finally, we embrace changes for the better and continually raise the bar as we strive for Excellence in our care delivery, operations, as well as management of finances and human resources.

Raising the bar
In the recent years, we have built a cohesive team who are committed to meet, or even exceed the benchmark set by the Government’s Enhanced Nursing Home Standards. Efforts will be channelled to continually raise our standard of care, in clinical areas like pain and continence management, falls prevention and mobility, skin care and oral hygiene, as well as advance care planning. We are also paying closer attention to the psychosocial well-being of our residents and their next-of-kin. Concurrently, to keep up with best practices, internal operations and corporate governance will be continually strengthened.

In conclusion, we want All Saints Home to be a happy home for satisfied residents and their loved ones, for our motivated and cohesive team of employees, and for our volunteers who will continue to give with their hearts.

Saying thanks
On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome the new faces who have joined the growing All Saints Home family. Our sincere appreciation goes out to all staff and volunteers who have contributed so much to make All Saints Home a beautiful place to live in, stay in and work in. Let’s work hand in hand to deliver our care services whole-heartedly, with pride and professionalism.

We thank God for the opportunity to serve and be a shining testimony of his great love and compassion in eldercare.
