About Us

Leviticus 19:32 “Stand up in the presence of the aged,
show respect for the elderly and revere your God…”

All Saints Home is a Social Service Agency that provides comprehensive and professional eldercare services to the aged of all backgrounds, many of whom are from low-income families or destitute. We are firmly anchored in our mission to provide quality care, bring joy and comfort, and honour the dignity of residents in a caring Christian environment. By God’s grace, we will continue to build up our reputation for our commitment to delivering the highest standards of professional eldercare 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 temporarily 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 a 2-storey columbarium on the old Home at Hougang site. 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, MOH and URA approved the plans on September 10, 2001 and January 15, 2002. 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 totaling 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 March 11, 2005.

Reverend Lee Huai Kwang (7.4.1918 – 25.11.2005)

Rev. Lee Huai Kwang was born to 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 a 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 the 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 on church work.

During his 55 years of service at Bethel, 23 years in an 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 teaches 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 a 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 a 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.

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

We provide quality care, bring joy and comfort, and honour the dignity of residents and clients 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. Under our Silver Lifestyle Club umbrella, we also provide community rehabilitation, maintenance day care, dementia day care, centre-based nursing and home care services.

Message from Chairman

Embedded within All Saints Home’s DNA is its unwavering dedication to provide quality care, bring joy and comfort, whilst honouring the dignity of residents in a caring Christian environment. As we round off another year, I am once again filled with gratitude, hope and pride at how the organisation and its stakeholders have risen to the challenge in realising its mission and vision.

The past year was marked with even greater instabilities than we could have anticipated. Supply chain disruption, rising inflation and the energy crisis were factors that have impacted the sector in both perceptible and imperceptible ways. Yet, it has been inspiring to witness how the Home took these hurdles in its stride, approaching each challenge as an opportunity to evolve, develop and improve.

First, I must acknowledge the work and accomplishments of our staff, from the senior management to the ground team. It is doubtless that the success and stability enjoyed within the Home is largely thanks to the passion and efforts of these individuals who strive to bring safety and joy to our residents and clients every day. It has been reiterated often enough that the past few years have been challenging for those in the Healthcare sector, but the tenacity, camaraderie and joy displayed by our team in overcoming these challenges truly humbles me constantly.

The fruits of the staff’s labour were evident this year as our Home continued to grow from strength to strength. With our Yishun Build-Own-Lease centre coming to the end of its lease, we took part in the bidding exercise in 2022 and were once again awarded by the Ministry of Health to operate the centre for another six years! We also received several awards and accolades during the year. These achievements cannot be understated and are a wonderful example of the possibilities and dreams that can be realised with passion and hard work.

Nevertheless, we do not operate in a vacuum, and it is thanks to the support of our stakeholders that has allowed us to be where we are. To the next-of-kins of our residents and clients, I appreciate your patience, support and trust in us as we do our utmost to provide quality care to your loved ones. Running a nursing home amidst global instabilities is never easy, and we are grateful for your co-operation and understanding through the shifts and changes in our operations.

As our nation transits towards Dorscon green and eases into an endemic state, I am heartened to have our volunteers back at our centres in full force. Festive holiday parties, birthday celebrations, residents’ outings, musical performances and other engagement activities were organised over the past year by volunteers in the community who have chosen to dedicate their time to bring joy to our residents, for which I am grateful.

Beyond the support rendered by our volunteers, we were also blessed by the generosity and goodwill of our donors. Despite the recent economic downturn, All Saints Home was able to meet its donation targets for the year. This gives me great joy and hope for the future, as it has proven again that the volume and blessings we receive are not conditional upon the state of our economy, but rather the abundant provisions of our Almighty God.

Special mention, with our sincere gratitude, must be given to our sector partners, especially the Ministry of Health and the Agency for Integrated Care, for their guidance through these tumultuous times. The frequent engagements and support provided by them have proven instrumental for the success of our initiatives and programmes, our push towards greater financial sustainability, and the execution of All Saints Home’s corporate strategy.

During the year, the Board experienced some changes as part of its renewal process. Our sincere appreciation goes to Mr Lim Kim Choon and Ms Loh Li Cheng who retired and were succeeded by Mr Alex Lim and Rev Dr Eugene Yeo respectively. Ms Loh used to serve as Board Secretary and Chairperson of the Human Resource Committee, and we are thankful she has decided to continue to serve in the HR Committee as member.

In January 2023, the Board mourned the passing of its former and long-serving Board Member, the late Mr Chua Lip Wei. Mr Chua had been a faithful supporter of All Saints Home and was especially instrumental in the fundraising efforts of the Home. He will be fondly missed for his gentle and generous personality.

As I look ahead, I am confident of the strength and resilience within the All Saints Home family, even as we run headlong into the uncertainties of 2023. We believe that the strategies we have in place will bring us to greater heights. We acknowledge the known and unknown challenges awaiting us and will monitor them closely, approaching each obstacle with patience and confidence. We will build upon our capabilities, forming new partnerships whilst investing in both manpower and strategy. Most importantly, we will continue putting our faith in God and trust in His provision. May we never falter in our efforts to be a shining testimony of His great love and compassion in eldercare.

To God be the glory!

Mr Lee Shee Koeng

Message from CEO

As I stepped foot into All Saints Home at the end of 2019, the COVID-19 pandemic had only just reached our local shores. Nobody could have anticipated the journey, the hardships, and the triumphs that the following years would bring.

Yet, as I witnessed how our Board Members, staff, volunteers, donors and other stakeholders came together to face these challenges, I am constantly filled with a great sense of pride and gratitude.

Welcome Back!

With the relaxation of visitation rules, we were able to resume our onsite activities such as outings, musical performances, festive celebrations and chapel services, much to the delight of our residents, clients, volunteers and staff.

It was gratifying to see many existing volunteers sticking with All Saints Home through thick and thin, while new ones signed up to serve alongside us. Many responded without hesitation to undergo the compulsory Tetanus, Diphtheria and Pertussis (TDAP) and Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccinations required of regular volunteers. Thank you, dear volunteers!

Compassion in Action

During the year, numerous ground up initiatives sprouted to serve not only our residents, but also our staff to help them cope with work stress and homesickness.

Following our successful Myanmar Day in 2021, our Project WeCARE team at the Yishun Centre organised a special Filipino Day for staff to gain a greater appreciation of the rich cultural heritage of our Filipino colleagues through traditional Filipino costumes, food, games and music. Over at the Jurong East Centre, our staff were given a taste of the local Peranakan (Straits Chinese) culture through Peranakan Day which featured a mini-exhibition, quizzes, musical items and of course, Peranakan food. Going forward, more of such events will be organised to showcase other nationalities and ethnic groups.

As an employer, All Saints Home continued to be an inclusive hirer. A significant achievement during the year was the successful hiring of two more staff with mild intellectual disabilities through a collaboration with SG Enable. It was a joy to see these new staff flourish in a safe, caring, and empowering work environment with buddies willing to go the extra mile for them.

Our Medical Social Services and Corporate & Community Affairs teams collaborated to launch the Packets of Love project, where they raised funds to purchase for our residents their favourite hawker food. Supported by volunteers who helped collect, pack and distribute the food, our staff’s labour of love was rewarded as our residents beamed with smiles as their gastronomy cravings were satisfied.

Animals can play a part in bringing cheer to our residents too! Our Community Relations team approached dog owners from around the neighbourhood to invite them to visit the Centres with their dogs to offer our residents some companionship. Such human-animal interaction never fails to bring joy and excitement as even our most stoic residents broke into smiles and laughter upon seeing them!

Striving for Excellence

All Saints Home continued its quest for excellence, through the promotion of a healthy learning culture. On the clinical front, the Nursing Team continued to deepen its expertise in topics such as wound care, mental health and infection control; the Wellness Support Programme led by the Rehabilitative Services Team approached its third and final year as its second year concluded successfully; and the Medical Social Services Team stepped up on Advance Care Planning while continuing with its clinical supervision programme. These efforts bore fruits not only in terms of better clinical outcomes but also in the individual and team awards received during the year, which were a tremendous encouragement to the team.

As part of the wider healthcare community, All Saints Home continued to benefit from partnerships with community and acute hospitals. These include our partnerships with St Luke’s Hospital for medical coverage at our Hougang and Jurong East centres; Tan Tock Seng Hospital in Project RESPECT (Advance Care Planning) and Project CARE (palliative support), both at our Hougang Centre; and Khoo Teck Puat Hospital in Gericare (geriatric support) at our Yishun Centre. Over at our Silver Lifestyle Clubs (Senior Care Centres), an ambitious organisational transformation was achieved through job redesign. This involved the integration of the Therapy Assistant and Care Associate functions, and the adoption of the Community Care Associate training and certification programme to enable staff to transit into the new role. The benefits to our staff are manifold – they are now better equipped to create more wholesome programmes for the enjoyment of our clients, while achieving higher productivity with a more meaningful career pathway. Our Silver Lifestyle Club also received Transitional Grants in preparation for the transition of its Senior Care Centres in Yishun into Active Ageing Centres. We look forward to playing a more active role in contributing to the realisation of the national vision of Healthier SG.

The mammoth Dementia Friendly Project which started in 2019 concluded successfully. This achievement is particularly sweet as the team had to weather challenges throughout the pandemic to bring better person-centric care to our residents with dementia. The completed murals, gardens, signages and fixtures are a testament of the team’s tenacity for quality and excellence, and I am certain that this project will always hold special meaning for all involved in bringing it to fruition.

To achieve stronger governance and greater transparency, our Risk Controls & Compliance Department developed a roadmap to ensure alignment with regulatory requirements and best practices in the sector. This includes performing internal audits across key domains and processes and refining our models for enterprise risk management and business continuity.

Digitalisation continued to feature prominently in All Saints Home’s priority as part of its long-term digital roadmap. During the year, the Volunteer Management System was launched, while cyber security and business continuity were strengthened.

Forging Ahead

Coming out of the pandemic while still operating in a volatile and disruptive environment, we are acutely aware that the key to long-term success in the longterm care sector rests in a person-centric Model of Care that is delivered with excellence and supported by data for operational effectiveness and financial sustainability.

Hence, moving forward, we will focus on two core strategic thrusts: first, defining and realising our superior Model of Care; and second, optimising our services and business model to achieve greater financial accountability and sustainability. These two strategic thrusts were formulated after an intensive management retreat in December 2022, backed by a comprehensive costing study which provided financial basis for the deliberations. They are aimed at making All Saints Home a robust and sustainable organisation and a “Community Care Organisation of Choice” for residents, clients, next-of-kins and employees, within the next 3-5 years.

To achieve these, the team needs a fundamental mindset shift to embrace change and reinforce teamwork with a long-term strategic view.

Gratitude and Confidence

Finally, I would like to thank all ASH stakeholders – the Ministry of Health, the Agency for Integrated Care, Board Members, residents, clients, next-of-kins, donors, volunteers, community partners, vendors – for your unwavering support. My team and I are deeply grateful to you for your acts of kindness, words of encouragement and collaborative efforts – they mean the world to us.

To my staff: the strength, determination and self sacrifice you have demonstrated day after day, despite unending challenges, never fail to impress me. You are the heroes and heroines, each in your own right. I am proud to co-labour with you as we plod on to “provide quality care, bring joy and comfort, and honour the dignity of our residents in a caring Christian environment”.

As we sail into the unknown, let us always remember that we have God as our Captain to steer us through the storms. With Him in control, not only do we not need to fret over challenges or obstacles, we can confidently look forward to the wonderful possibilities He has in store for us. As we are reminded in Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.”

May all praise, honour and glory be to God Almighty!
