Lee Ah Mooi Old Age Home was established in the mid-1960s by the late Madam Lee Ah Mooi who opened the doors of her residence to retired Samsui women and former Amahs who wanted a trained nurse to help care for them during their twilight years. The nursing home currently provides healthcare service to 110 aged residents. The home has basic accessibility features but more could be done to make the environment more conducive for the residents, all of whom are elderly with mobility restrictions.

Over the last few months, BCA volunteers worked with construction sector partners as well as students from Singapore Poly, ITE Central, NUS and BCA Academy to renovate parts of the Home and make them even more elderly friendly. The work was completed today as part of Universal Design Week.

“Project Breaking Barriers” organized by the Building and Construction Authority’s (BCA) corporate social responsibility project together with firms in the built environment sector for the Singapore Universal Design Week (SUDW) to improve the overall accessibility of Lee Ah Mooi Old Age Home. This refurbishment project improves the safely and convenience to the Home’s residents and caregivers, enhancing their well-being and promoting greater independence in their daily living.
