A newly admitted resident who rarely smiled or talk with the staff, Mdm Ng is a picky eater and refuses activity engagement. After Namaste Care was introduced to her, she started to converse with staff and engaged in activities. Her appetite also increased, demonstrated in a weight gain of at least 8kg.
Mr Lim used to tap anything that is caught in his hands. He also regularly shouted, made irrelevant sounds, and didn’t sleep well at night. After he was engaged in Namaste Care, he became calmer and quieter. He converses with staff instead of shouting. He also sleeps well at night now
Mdm Ang Sew Chu Mdm Ang was uncommunicative and rarely opened her eyes. She also needed to be fed by staff. At night, she tended to make noises and have interrupted sleeps. After being engaged in Namaste Care, she became more alert. Her eyes are now much brighter, and she has learnt to communicate her needs to staff by making sounds and gestures. She even regained her independence in eating by herself and since gained weight. She now has a much more peaceful sleep.
