Our Garden, Our Community

October 26, 2020

Initiated by our staff and volunteers at St Luke’s ElderCare (SLEC) Hougang Centre, our elders had a fun and memorable day planting and harvesting herbs and vegetables from the community garden.

The activity was well-planned to stimulate the five senses of sight, sound, smell, taste and touch. Our elders enjoyed the vibrant colors of the plants, flowers and herbs; heard the simple symphony of the birds; smelt the natural scent of herbs and nature; pruning process and tasted their produce of their harvest. Delighted in the personal touch of their pruning process.

Our elders beamed with pride as they saw the fruition of their efforts and shared their produce over lunch.

At SLEC, we believe in offering a variety of activities and programmes for our elders through partnerships and empowering our staff to introduce initiatives across our nursing home and centres located islandwide.
