About Lee Ah Mooi Old Age Home
Lee Ah Mooi Old Age Home (LAMH) is a family-run nursing home established in the mid-1960s by the late Madam Lee Ah Mooi. She was a registered nurse with the Singapore General Hospital during the 1930s and the nursing home was started to provide nursing care for the Samsui women and Ah Mahs. Today, the nursing home provides a range of services to meet the needs of the residents and these services include medical care, nursing care, physiotherapy, dietary services etc.
LAMH pursues a focused and unique strategy where it firmly caters to the low-to-middle income group, targeting mainly families in the sandwiched class who are unable to receive government subsidises. The heart of our vision lies in staying true to the philosophy of prioritising affordability and personalised eldercare for the residents, which is our unconditional love for all.
After the passing of Madam Lee in 1992, the nursing home was passed down to her two sons, Mr. Then Mun Wah and Mr. Then Mun Tat, who continue to manage the home together till today. The nursing home survived for so many years because of their resolve and perseverance in spite of the many limitations and challenges. In the years ahead, Singapore is fast becoming an ageing society that will definitely see a surge in the demand for nursing care services as a result of Singapore’s rapid growth and the post-war baby boom of the 1950s. Madam Lee’s family hopes to carry on her legacy in providing affordable and quality nursing care services to the Singapore population.
About expansion to Silat Avenue
In April 2017, LAMH expanded its nursing care to the former Orange Valley nursing home situated in 148A Silat Avenue. LAMH has proposed Addition & Alteration (A&A) works to the existing building to increase the bed capacity from 104 to 132 beds. The plan also includes the addition of two passenger lifts, two wards at levels 1 and 2, as well as new offices at level 2. The alteration works aim to improve the environment with greater emphasis on residents’ ageing with dignity, respect and self-reliance. These works are expected to cost $2.6 million.
As our philosophy has always been to help the sandwiched class, we have kept our fees affordable and contribute back in forms of subsidies or absorbing inflation costs throughout the years. As such, funding for the renovations would rely heavily on the generous support of our sponsors, volunteers and public. This will no doubt be an exciting and challenging chapter ahead as we aim to cater for 132 residents in this new premise.
We hope that the renovated site will be a safe haven for our residents.
Like family, like home.
