Ju Eng Home for Senior Citizens (JEH) was officially opened on 28 September 1996 by Mr George Yeo, then-Minister for Health, accommodating 104 residents under its Phase I development. Due to the country’s rapid ageing population and the surging need for elderly nursing care, a new five-storey building under Phase II was built and completed in September 2001. The two buildings now house a total of 334 residents.
The home has been granted charity status by the Commissioner of Charities. It is affiliated to the National Council of Social Services (NCSS) and licensed as a Nursing Home under The Private Hospitals and Medical Clinics Act 1980.
The Home provides up to 334 beds for full residential care and is equipped with modern facilities for the physical, emotional and spiritual well-being of the elderly.
It houses a large reception hall, recreational & dining rooms, with facilities for dormitory-style living, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, medical consultation and a dispensary. The Home also conducts regular Sunday chapel services for residents and staff.
Rehabilitative services are carried out for our residents, reinforced by maintenance therapy to prevent deterioration. Qualified medical and nursing staff, including the services of a Psycho Geriatrician, are on hand to manage residents with chronic medical conditions.
Recreational and social activities are planned by dedicated staff and volunteers to enable the residents to keep in touch with their social and physical environment.
