13. Charis Manor Nursing Home
Charis Manor Nursing Home was established by CSM Academy International Group Pte Ltd as one of its wholly owned subsidiaries. CSM Academy International Group comprises CSM Academy International Pte Ltd, a private education institute established since 2005 specializing in healthcare education.
Charis Manor aims to break away from the traditional nursing home design and operations whereby they designed the nursing home to have the ambiance of a cozy home instead of a clinical setting traditionally found in most nursing homes.
Care provision is also of finest standard expected in upscale hotels where choice of food is found in menus, choice of activities in a long list of activities that elderly could engage in and not just lie in bed to pass their final stage of life but to celebrate life engaging in fun activities and interactions.
With Singapore older population on a rise, the issue of old-age care has become much of a social concern.
While the fact that people are living longer should be celebrated, the flip side is that age-related illness such as dementia are on the rise and it is important to find solutions and alleviate the difficulties people may face as a result.
That is when Charis Manor, a new age nursing home has emerged to fulfil the needs.
A nursing home is a choice to start a new phase of life.
Adhering to this philosophy, Charis Manor was born. The word “Charis” is derived from the grace of God to serve his favorite creation – mankind, and signify the founder’s beautiful expectations for this nursing home.

16. Home Instead Singapore
It all began when the founders, Reuben and Irene Khoo, had to take their dad home from the hospital. Dad had a fall resulting in a hip fracture and had spent time recuperating in the community hospital. In need of help to care for Dad, they explored every option available in the market.
“We could sense that the last thing Dad wanted was to be in a nursing home. Dad felt safer being at home with his loved ones.
While there were choices for home-based care, we felt there was more to just performing the task of care. More than just quality care you can trust, there was a difference when caring for a loved one – it all comes down to the personal touch when you understand the person.
In our minds, for Dad to return home to be among his loved ones, with the aid of a domestic helper to tend to his care needs, would be the best option.
However we soon realized that though Dad’s physical care needs were met, he was not achieving positive health outcomes. Dad was becoming withdrawn, not interested in meals and showing signs of depression. His mental health started to take a toll on his physical health.
We felt the call to step up to be Dad’s caregivers. Knowing our Dad personally, we were able to engage Dad in things that could bring joy to him. To equip ourselves with better knowledge, we researched on aging and care. That was when we recognized that Dad was also having the onset of mild dementia.
After several months of personalized care, we could see Dad recovering gradually on all fronts – physically, mentally, and emotionally. Within a year, Dad was almost back to his normal self except for the occasional forgetfulness and walking around with the help of a walking aid.
Having had the experience, we are convinced that care provided with the right knowledge and putting the relationship first, beyond just tasks, makes a positive difference. Encouraged to change the approach to care-giving, we embarked on a journey to search globally for a home senior care provider embodying such qualities.”
Home Instead Senior Care in Singapore was founded – out of necessity, to make a difference.
