On 1 July 2016, Nexia TS Citizens spent a meaningful day with the residents at St. John’s Home for Elderly Persons. The firm-wide Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) event is one of the various CSR initiatives Nexia TS undertake in its capacity as a professional firm to give back to the community it operates in.
The day visit started off with a mass karaoke session led enthusiastically by the warm elderly residents who belted out their favourite hits with glee and cheers from the audience. With the sing-along session ending on a high note, the programme was followed by a creative handicraft workshop and more mass games to engage the residents, drawing them out from their private worlds into a delightful afternoon of fun and social interaction.
As a means to take care of their physical needs as well, gift packs consisting of basic daily essentials were presented to the residents along with a hand-written note by staff, adding a personal touch to the goodies received by the residents.
Nexia TS Citizens were also deployed to help spruce up the home by cleaning the compound – window grills, floors, corridors and the gardens were all tended to, on top of other cleaning duties assigned. At the end of the day, many of us brought back something precious – memories of a heartfelt connection with our seniors, and for the residents, memories of a day well-spent through a warm, sincere companionship with people from different age generations and backgrounds.
“It was heart-warming to see our staff interacting with the elderly, having a meal and doing things together, and in a way, I felt that we had received more than we gave because many of us had learnt many life lessons from our seniors just by talking to them. Personally, interacting and assisting the seniors through arts and craft activities struck a chord within me, serving as a reminder to love my parents and family around me even more. As a firm and a corporate family, we will continue in our mission to encourage everybody to look beyond ourselves and to contribute back to the society by being socially-responsible individuals.”
Henry Tan, Managing Director, Nexia TS
