No Visitors Allowed until 30 April

Dear Caregivers,

As of 31st March, there are a total number of 926 Covid-19 reported cases in Singapore.

Case 918 is a resident at a nursing home at 1 Thomson Lane. The 86-year-old woman is unlinked to any cases at the moment. She was tested positive for COVID-19 on 31st March and is currently in an isolation room in the hospital.

Singapore enters a new phase of Covid-19 community transmission.

United Medicare Centre (UMC) is taking the community spread very seriously. In the past months, we have taken many precaution measures to minimise the potential exposure to our residents who are elderly and most vulnerable. The measures had been taken include:

  • Cancellation of group outings
  • Cancellation of volunteers’ visits
  • Cancellation of all external events
  • Temperature taking twice a day for the residents and staff
  • Reducing the number of visitors and limiting visiting hours.
  • Cancellation of home leave
  • Implementation of safe distancing

The impact of residents in a nursing home being infected can be very detrimental. UMC management has conducted a careful risk assessment and decided that we shall NOT ALLOW VISITORS from 2nd April till 30th April. We would like to ask for your understanding and cooperation for the enhanced measures taken.

We understand that you and family members’ emotional support to the resident is very important, so we encourage you to call our residents’ mobile phones if they have to chat with them daily.

For residents who do not have mobile phones, our centre staff will have allocated time slots for you to call or video chat with your loved ones staying in UMC.

If you need any assistant with calling or video chat, please contact the respective centre, our colleagues will be there to assist you.

  • 取消志愿者访问

Nurses’ Day 2017

Every year on 1 August, United Medicare Centre celebrate Nurses’ Day to honour and recognise the contribution of nurses. The nursing staff renewed their commitment to serve and care for the residents as they recite the Nurses’ Pledge.

Nursing is more than just passion to serve but also to go that extra mile, to go beyond to care. It is a journey with many challenges along with rewards as well. The rewards may come in forms of just a smile; an acknowledgement, a pat on the shoulder or words of “thank you”.

On behalf of all the residents and the management of United Medicare Centre,

Thank you for your dedication and efforts, making a loving and welcoming home for the residents and a good workplace to learn and grow together as one united family.

Wishing all nurses a Happy Nurses’ Day.
