|Counseling is available for elderly SWS client users and their families. The pastor and the pastoral care team of Salem Chapel supervise and provide this service. At the Salem Day Rehab Centre, we focus on the total well being of the elderly, looking into their physical, social and emotional needs. Sessions are conducted by pastoral staff who each have different expertise in dealing with the needs of the elderly.|
|Counseling topics covered are based on the needs of service users and their families. They range from helping the elderly cope with problems associated with aging, to counselling for their families on how to resolve misunderstanding and bridging the communication gaps amongst family members.|
The pastoral team consists of three Pastors, who effectively communicate in various languages (English, Mandarin, Tamil) and dialects (Hokkien, Cantonese) with the elderly folk. SWS provides counselling services in the form of one-to-one or group sessions. The pastoral care team undertakes home visitations as needed.
