Mdm President’s Virtual Visit of Melrose Home

Mdm President’s Virtual Visit of Melrose Home

On 29 May 2020, we had a delightful Friday morning with Mdm President Halimah Yacob. It was our pleasure to host Mdm President for a virtual visit of Melrose Home, where she could engage and chat with various residents and staff through video-conferencing.

Residents showcased their different dorms and shared about the challenges and joys of experiencing home-based learning and school holidays during the Circuit Breaker. Some presented pictures of the unique holiday activities and Hari Raya celebrations, while others even showed handmade masks that were made together with our therapists during this period. Our care staff also shared about what keeps them motivated as essential workers in the social service.

It was a wonderful and unique experience for all of us – a great way to mark the end of the Circuit Breaker and the start of the new school term.

Thank you to our community partner Food from the Heart (Singapore) as well for contributing a special lunch treat for our residents as part of this virtual visit 🙂
