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.
We were happy to visit our fellow business contact Will & Well. Founder Ms Elisa, a fashion designer, specializes in custom made fashion apparels to those with special needs. Every of her design piece is easy to wear. This has enabled elders, handicapped persons, care givers as well as people without special needs to put on clothing with less hassle.
The exhibition also showcased a variety of services and products which are catering for the eldercare sector, such as home-use cardiac and auto body temperature monitoring systems by New Japan Radio Co., Ltd and innovative vibration machines by BodyGreen.
We did have a great exposure to current market trends, inventions and information exchange with businesses there. We are looking forward to attend the next ELDEX.
