Innovative 'Table Tennis Therapy' to help the elderly sick and dementia patients.* All Saints Home (ASH) has introduced Table Tennis Therapy (TTT) to improve the physical strength of their elderly residents at all their 4 Centres, also benefiting those suffering from dementia. TTT helps the elderly in their hand-eye coordination, also helping those suffering from dementia to focus.
TTT was initiated at ASH Hougang Centre in 2014, and is now available in Tampines, Yishun and Jurong East. It is run weekly for 1 to 1.5 hours. TTT is run by volunteers with the assistance of the Centre coordinator.
We have witnessed remarkable improvement in both the physical and emotional health of the TTT participants. Both the volunteers and the ASH participants are very enthusiastic and look forward to the TTT every week. That is really heartening and rewarding.
