COVID-19 did not stop us from participating in CPAS Charity Dinner 2020. This dinner was also the first gathering that all of us came together since the circuit breaker period. The experience of holding the “banquet” at our own office, watching the charity livestream and responding to the event host via laptop was very different compared to previous years, where the events were held at Marina Bay Sands. The livestream and auction were indeed entertaining and hilarious.
Once in every 4 months’ time, it will be our Director’s BNI Featured Presentation. This time around, we were bringing a brand new topic, Keep Calm and Stay Healthy at the Workspace, which combined interior design and infection control measures for workplace to ensure the health and wellbeing of a business’s most valuable assets, the employees are protected.
Thanks to Alzheimer’s Disease Association (ADA) for conducting this programme of learning – Enabling EDIE. We were grateful to participate in this programme which is only available in Australia, Canada and Singapore.
In the class, we experienced how a dementia patient perceived the world with visual reality. It enabled us to feel the challenges they are facing and thus creating a supportive environment to engage, enable and empower them.
This programme simulated Edie, a dementia patient, waking up in the middle of the night and finding his way to the bathroom.
As a parent, we always do our best to cultivate a loving heart in our children. The ability to be able to think in someone’s shoe, deeply empathizing and connecting with others not only important in guaranteeing a harmony relationship in family and workplace, but also enables one to live his or her life with gratitude.
