Thanks to a contribution from ICAP Singapore in 2011, the Apex Day Rehabilitation Centre for the Elderly was able to create a special transport service for the under-served disabled elderly in their community.
With the new ICAP sponsored transport service, some 40 senior citizens who either live alone or whose caregivers are not able to provide them with transportation, are now able to come to the Centre. The disabled seniors enjoy karaoke sessions, art projects and chatting with volunteers. Without the ICAP transportation service, these senior citizens would have missed out on this crucial human interaction. The ICAP donation has made a tremendous difference in the lives of these seniors.
ICAP's generosity and kindness in providing Apex Day Rehabilitation Centre for the Elderly funds to purchase a van fully equipped for the Elderly disabled has made life easier and more comfortable. Many are benefitting from the service which enables the elderly to come to our Centre for exercises, interaction with each other and to partake in several more activities which brighten their otherwise mundane life. Thank you ICAP!Sr Marjorie Almodiel, Manager of the Apex Day Rehabilitation Centre.

Life at the Centre is full of care, joy, love, laughter and fulfilments.
