The awards are part of International Ageing Week in Singapore which is an industry initiative driven by Ageing Asia, and comprises of a week of events, activities and training that showcase the world’s latest innovations and demonstrate leading solutions that drive improvement in the quality of care for the older adults in the region.

CEO, Tanya Abramzon said, “To be recognised on an international stage for our innovation in active ageing programs as well as building architecture and interior design is an amazing achievement for Emmy Monash. We are immensely proud of this achievement and that we were able to showcase our facility and programs to a global audience”.

Emmy Monash was awarded finalist awards in the following three categories:

• Best Active Ageing Program: Still Firing

Journeys through Sculptures and Clay A partnership initiated by Emmy Monash Aged Care with Duldig Studios and Bialik College, Still Firing is a creative sensory program focused on clay sculpture techniques and personal expression. Residents learned new artistic skills, fostered inter generational friendships with the Bialik students and developed an appreciation of shared values and community wellbeing.

• Best Silver Architecture: Emmy Monash Gandel House

It’s no surprise that the architectural design of Gandel House has attracted international attention since it’s completion. We have created a community hub that encourages socialisation across generations, stimulates inclusiveness and offers opportunities for meaningful engagement. The architectural design allows for an abundance of natural light via vertically integrated inviting courtyards and themed lifestyle rooms to enhance interest based activities.

• Best Silver Interior Design: Emmy Monash Gandel House

To challenge the notion that quality of life diminishes with age, Emmy Monash Gandel House strikes the right balance of aspirational lifestyle with clinical care options in a positive ageing facility where residents live a full life; socially, emotionally, spiritually and physically in a refined urban landscape.


Emmy Monash Aged Care has become a vibrant community hub, dedicated to sustaining and advancing our focus on aged care services and residential facilities. The culture of embracing innovation whilst demonstrating respect, empathy, and excellence reflects our Jewish heritage and values. Encouraging volunteers, family, students, professional partners and staff to become actively involved with residents, reflects our holistic philosophy. Visionary leadership, committed board members, dedicated management, motivated staff and excellent facilities ensure residents needs are our paramount priority.

Innovative lifestyle programs enhance the imagination of our residents promoting self worth and quality of life, whilst the ageing in place structure encourages confidence, security and dignity for residents and their families.
