After a long tendering and testing phase, wissner-bosserhoff was able to supply low-nursing care beds for the new facilities of the nursing home St.Joseph`s Home in Singapore. In total, 394 beds of the type sentida 6-le were delivered in January.

In addition to high functionality and appealing design, these beds combine pleasant handling, ergonomics and high-quality equipment. The sentida series has won several prestigious design-awards, such as red-dot award, IF-Award or German Design Award, and is thus one of the most important product lines on an international scale.

Innovative solutions to make daily nursing care easier and safer.

The new generation of the successful sentida low nursing bed family relies on the continuous development of innovative solutions such as SafeFree, the patented side guard system, which complies with the recommendations of the expert standard for fall prevention and are a proven standing- up aid, which promotes the mobility of the resident. The divided SafeFree side guards are easily retractable, can be lowered in only 2 seconds and save space. Depending on the nursing situation and the height of the resident, SafeFree can be individually adjusted to four different heights and does not require middle posts, guide rails or central gap protectors.

In principle, all beds from the sentida family are equipped with the proven BiNetic reclining area with a double retraction, which, unlike most of the conventional reclining surfaces, has not only a DBfK backrest, but also a 6cm legrest retraction prevention. Pressure can be further reduced with the BiNetic patient surface for patients with above-average height due to its integrated bed extension: The patient surface can be extended to 220 cm either temporarily and without tools using the express bed extension, or permanently with the bed extension set, preventing the legs from bumping on the foot end.

A person-centered home which values human dignity

St. Joseph’s Home was set up by the Catholic Welfare Services in 1978 to provide shelter, care and love for the aged and destitute, regardless of race or religion. It was the late Dr. Ee Peng Liang’s vision and untiring efforts that made this possible. The Canossian Sisters volunteered their services for the administration and running of the Home. They were fully involved right from the beginning of its conception to the present day-to-day care of the residents. In 1985, there was a pressing need to care for patients with advanced illness, and Dr. Ee was once again instrumental in starting the hospice. In 1993, St. Joseph’s Home moved to its present premises, with the promise of bigger and better facilities for their residents.


St. Joseph`s is a person-centered home which values human dignity. Since its foundation it is the mission of the house to provide holistic care through love, care and compassion.
