Melrose Home has evolved from a Children’s Home to a Small Group Care residential facility with a Children’s Wing (residents who are 12 years old and below) and Youth Wing (residents between 12 to 18 years old and enrolled in secondary or tertiary education).
Our mission is to provide the best care and guidance for our residents through a holistic approach, especially in the areas of cognitive, physical, emotional and mental development. We strive to empower our young charges to be morally upright and contributing members of their families and community.
Programmes Anchored in Values
To complement the Home’s social care initiatives, the Residential Care team provide round-the-clock care and guidance, plan and conduct regular and holiday programmes that are anchored in values relevant to our residents’ life stage needs.
We offer strong academic support through a structured programme, providing study time, customised individual and small group tuition sessions and enrichment activities. E-learning and other learning resources are regularly utilised too.
Fun & Fitness
As the saying goes, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Every resident gets to enjoy our outdoor playground and fitness facilities, and playing a variety of sports with friends.
Values in Action
Our residents are encouraged to look beyond their circumstances and learn to care for others around them. We sensitize them to the needs of the elderly and others who may also be less fortunate in the community.
Giving a Voice
Residents participate in ‘Circle Time’ regularly, which encourages them to reflect on their day and openly share feedback on issues that concern them such as dishes they would like in the daily menu or activities they would like to have organized.
We share the joy of success when our residents make significant achievements in their school work and enrichment activities.
