SanCare Asia is the only reminiscence music-based person-centered eldercare company in Asia. We believe every individual is unique and that a personalised approach to caring for our elderly will provide the best solution to living out their years in dignity. We offer a personalised music programme - Strike A Note© which is customised to every client, enabling them to connect with their loved ones and environment. More recently, we developed Return To The Tea Dance© - a new reminiscence music and movement programme based on the silent disco concept for seniors across all abilities. The programme has been lauded by industry peers and was nominated as a Finalist at the 8th Asia-Pacific Eldercare Innovation Awards in the Best Dementia Programme category. At the height of the COVID-19 outbreak, the company launched Virtual Return To The Tea Dance© to help combat the social isolation our seniors faced during the pandemic. At the programme's peak, we were serving up to 2,000 seniors at a single session online - a feat unimaginable prior to pre-pandemic times.
Not resting on our laurels, SanCare Asia developed a new programme, Melody Of Touch© - with people with communication challenges in mind. Central to the programme is the patented electronic therapeutic device, CRDL - a revolutionary product which translates human touch to sound. The programme was selected as a Finalist in the 11th edition of the Eldercare Innovation Awards in 2023.
Recognised for the work done to uplift the lives of our pioneering seniors, SanCare Asia was officially inducted as a member of Singapore Centre for Social Enterprise (raiSE) in 2020. raiSE defines Social Enterprises as business entities set up with clear social goals; and where there is clear management intent and resources allocated to fulfil their social objectives. Social Enterprises provide business solutions to address unmet and emerging social needs and gaps. They have the potential to make a difference, create value and solve social challenges in sustainable ways. Social Enterprises have grown to become part of a broader system to address social needs. In an emerging trend, they also fulfil the aspirations of a new generation of Singaporeans who are passionate to do good through means other than charities, and as a part of their daily lives.
There should be no end in doing good for society, and SanCare Asia is very proud and honoured to be inducted by the country's National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre's (NVPC) into the network of Company Of Good in 2023.
Companies were previously assessed by their efforts in doing good, such as volunteering, donation and fundraising initiatives. With the implementation of the corporate purpose framework, the recognition model will be enhanced accordingly.
Central to this recognition system is harmonisation. Existing standards, marks and awards conferred on a company by Singapore government and pertinent and global institutions will be considered. Strategically, this brings about the necessary coordination and integration of different standards, awards and marks in Singapore for companies to be recognised for their holistic contributions at a national level.
