Giving Back



Programmes such as community visual arts, performing arts, art and music therapies reduce stress, increase social engagement and offer creative outlets for patients and caregivers to express themselves and improve their emotional and mental health.

We welcome creative and artistic individuals, performing groups and schools to collaborate with us. Please contact [email protected].

Community Visual Arts

Our community visual art programme aims to integrate art with its facilities, landscape to create a healing experience for patients, visitors and staff. We are committed to involve the community in the southwest district as well as the hospital staff and patients in co-creating artworks together with local artists.

Community Visual Arts - Seniors

From making aromatic mandalas with spices, to folding paper carnations to celebrate Mothers’ Day, our patients enjoy a variety of interactive and sensorial art experience at their bedsides brought to them by our volunteers. Art-on-the-Move offers patients a positive diversion, take them down memory lane, improve their fine-motor skills and inspire self-confidence.

Music-on-the-Move and Concerts

Music-on-the-Move brings live music to the bedside to cheer and comfort patients. Working with schools in the region and performance groups, musicians visit NTFGH and JCH regularly to perform uplifting classical music, familiar favourites and oldies that patients can hum along and reminisce together. Regular concerts featuring orchestras and dance performances are held in JCH Community Hub to bring cheer to a larger audience.

Art and Music Therapy

JCH offers patients with dementia and their families with art and music therapy programmes to reduce stress, agitation, improve socialisation as well as emotional and physical well-being.

Facilitated by professional art and music therapists, the sessions provide a safe space for patients to express themselves and explore their feelings through different art mediums like painting, collaging and clay modelling and by singing, moving and playing instruments to music that they can relate to. During group therapies, patients often share their artworks, stories or memories with one another, giving them the opportunities to discover themselves and find their voice when words sometimes fail them.
