Since its establishment in 2000, Yeap Medical Supplies has been actively involved with various nursing homes, in line with the company’s focus on the needs of the geriatric population.

For Yeap Medical Supplies (YMS) Pte Ltd, business and charity work are not mutually exclusive. The distributor of medical devices in Singapore has managed to meld both worlds in the course of its work. Set up in 2000, YMS focuses on the needs of the geriatric population.

Managing director Victor Yeap says: “There was little fanfare and focus on this area of healthcare when we started. But now, we are fairly well-known as one of the key contributors to the nursing-home market.”

As a vendor of products ranging from adult diapers to alcohol swabs for nursing homes, the company’s raison d’etre are the elderly folks and being with them is a quotidian occurence.

Staff of YMS have become fixtures at nursing homes – which include Sunshine Welfare Action Mission and Sree Narayana Mission Home – not only on a professional level but also on a personal level. . .
