Community hospitals play an important role in providing continuing care for patients upon their discharge from acute care hospitals. SACH aims to promote recovery and help patients integrate back into the community after their discharge.

Inpatient Services

Rehabilitative Care

Rehabilitative care is for patients who require physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and/or music therapy. Patients will undergo 2 to 4 weeks of rehabilitation to help them regain daily living functions and integrate back into the community.

 

Sub-acute Care

Sub-acute care is for patients recovering from complicated medical conditions, who still require a further period of hospitalisation for sub-acute treatment. Patients will undergo 2 to 4 weeks of treatment to help them improve to their optimal functional status, which will allow them to be managed at home.

 

Paediatric Care

Paediatric care is offered to young patients from 2 years old to 18 years old. Referred to us from an acute-care hospital, these patients suffer from illnesses which require longer term non-acute medical and/or rehabilitative care.

 

Dementia Care

The dementia care programme at SACH provides cares for patients with mild to severe dementia who also require rehabilitation. Our person-centred approach offers customised therapy sessions (physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and music therapy) and meaningful social activities to engage patients in everyday life.

 

Palliative Care

Palliative care is for patients suffering from terminal illnesses. Our care team, comprising doctors, nurses, therapists, social workers, pharmacists and chaplains, will support patients and their loved ones. We seek to provide patients with relief from the symptoms, pain and stress of the illness, help them understand their responses to their illness as well as their treatment options and goals.
