Built to celebrate life

The experience of staying at Allium Care Suites is one of absolute discernment and discreet luxury. Enjoy an elegant and convenient lifestyle next to Windsor Nature Park surrounded by nature, tranquility and complete privacy.

Allium Care Suites is all about defying perceptions of how older adults live, or choose to live their lives. We have created a consummate hospitality experience for you to make the most of your life.

Our vision for Allium Care Suites was to combine the very finest of hospitality and healthcare within a bespoke sanctuary for wellness.

Welcome to Allium Care Suites.

Every detail considered

Inspired by Singapore’s prestige as a biophilic City in a Garden, Metaphor Design + Architecture Pte. Ltd. designed Allium Care Suites as “suites within a garden”.

More ‘household’ than ‘nursing home’, our living spaces are the first of its kind in Singapore, purpose-built to cater to the different needs of older adults and their families.

Comprising exclusively single and double suites, our residency options provide respite and long-term care. Each suite is specially designed to give you a private space of calm and comfort with a view to harmonious surroundings.

Everywhere you look, the highest standards of eldercare ergonomic design support easy living and comfort. This includes wardrobe fixtures and sanitary wares that encourage you to be as freely independant as possible.

Built with climatic responsive design in mind, Allium Care Suites was awarded the Green Mark Platinum by the Building & Construction Authority (BCA) for delivering an ecologically responsible and friendly development.

Perfectly located next to the vast greenery of Windsor Nature Park, Allium Care Suites presents an oasis surrounded by lush landscapes.

DESIGNED FOR DEMENTIA

Fit for purpose

Meticulously designed to complement their natural settings, our dementia care suites are furnished in soft, warm hues to minimise sensory overstimulation.

CREATIVE THERAPY

The art of dementia

Roadblocks to verbal communication laid by dementia are bypassed through the artistic process, and individuals can express themselves through the art. Concentration and attention improves, and patients are often easier to care for even when the therapy is over.
– Dr. Daniel C.Potts

Art therapy and music reminiscence are known to produce positive results in the treatment and prevention of cognitive decline. Our creative activities and music sessions stimulate the senses and create engaging sessions to provide you with a better quality of life.

CASEWORK AND COUNSELLING

Strengthening relationships

Our medical social worker is a care professional who helps you and your family cope with the emotional and social responses to illness and treatment.

The core of our care plan is to effectively meet the needs of individuals and their families by connecting needs with resources.

At Allium Healthcare, our medical social worker has journeyed with many families through challenging situations. She provides invaluable support, advice and practical information on government schemes and assists with referrals to community agencies and resources.

CARE ASSESSMENT

The care journey begins with an assessment to understand the personal contexts of your loved ones’ situation and your family, social, cultural, and psychological systems and spiritual dimension.

INTERVENTION PLAN

Together, we discuss care goals and expectations, to deliver a best fit, comprehensive intervention plan based on specific concerns, preferences and unique social situations.

REVIEW

Evaluation of the intervention plan will be conducted with the involvement of your loved ones and family members to assess care support outcomes.

Refinement and adjustment are important and valuable parts of our casework process. The collaborative discussion of potential changes in a case plan not only strengthens the caregiver’s sense of accountability but also serves to empower and enable.

Our medical social worker will monitor, evaluate and review the care plan over the full course of intervention. The intervention process is complete when your loved ones and family members achieve a level of desired independence.

ADVANCE CARE PLANNING

Continuous compassion

Advance care planning begins with a discussion to note personal preferences towards receiving medical care to meet long-term needs. It serves as a guide to healthcare providers to help with treatment decisions according to your loved ones’ wishes.

The process involves an advance care planning facilitator and your loved ones to explore, discuss and share personal values and beliefs, and to anticipate healthcare preferences and potential medical conditions and situations.

Different types of advance care planning will cater to the different needs and stages of life. At Allium Healthcare, we embrace client-centred care, incorporating evidence-based practice to deliver a holistic approach.

Your loved ones’ wishes and preferred plan of care will be documented. The advance care planning process also involves the appointment of a Nominated Healthcare Spokesperson (NHS) to advocate on behalf of your loved ones. This allows for your loved ones’ autonomy to be respected and reduces potential conflict and uncertainty amongst family members.

We deliver peace of mind in care transition to ensure the continuity of care for an elder requiring assistance and supervision in activities of daily living or consistent nursing care.
