Testimonials from our DAC parents

“I am constantly updated on the progress of my son’s learning. Now he is able to carry out activities of daily living such as dressing more independently. I would reinforce such activities at home with him.”

“The staff of DAC are committed, caring and patient. They are always ready to go extra miles. Before my son was admitted to Bishan Home’s DAC, he was quiet and had difficulty walking. Now he has become more bubbly, alert and there is improvement in his mobility.”
