A Remarkable Visit to Headstart Academy: Empowering Special Needs Children

It was a truly enchanting morning as the EverCare team embarked on a visit to another Special Needs Child Therapy Center located at Damansara. What made this center truly exceptional was its unique setting inside a bustling shopping mall. As we entered the premises of Headstart Academy, a therapy center dedicated to serving special needs children, we were captivated by the innovative concept. The idea of parents being able to relax with a cup of tea while their child received therapy treatment was simply remarkable.

To make this visit even more meaningful, we were honored to have Encik Azhar, the Director of Rockwills, accompany us. Our primary objective was to organize a workshop for parents, aiming to raise awareness about the special needs children trust fund and enhance emergency life-saving skills in case of dangerous situations. The workshop discussions flowed smoothly, and we were pleased with the positive outcome.

After the productive discussion, the Headstart Academy manager graciously guided us on a brief tour of the center. We were astonished by the thoughtful design elements implemented to ensure the safety and well-being of the children. The center’s spacious and vibrant gym room left us in awe. As the director shared with us, Headstart Academy boasts the highest graduation rate for special needs children, with approximately 30% to 40% successfully transitioning back to mainstream schools and leading better-quality lives. This accomplishment was a testament to their unwavering commitment to assisting every special needs child, valuing their right to a fulfilling life and acknowledging that they merely require additional guidance and patience from society.

After an hour filled with awe and inspiration, the visit concluded, leaving a lasting impression on both EverCare and Rockwills. We are now diligently preparing for the upcoming workshop, eagerly anticipating the opportunity to announce it soon. This visit to Headstart Academy has truly been an incredible experience, further solidifying our dedication to empowering special needs children and ensuring their inclusion within society.

An Eternity Love from the heaven

Date: 12th Apr 2022
Written by Juliet Choo

At the moment each child enters the world, they become the eternal concern of their parents. Parents understand that they can accompany their children for a while, but they cannot be with them for their entire lives. The greatest wish of parents is that even if they are not with their children, their children can still grow up healthy and live well. Especially for parents of special children, they are more worried about their children not being able to receive good care after their parents’ departure. No one can take care of their children’s daily lives and diets, and their children’s future cannot be guaranteed.

The special needs trust provided by Rockwills Trustee Company & As-Salihin Trustee Company can perfectly solve your worries. A special needs trust is a trust established specifically to provide additional funds for people with special needs such as physical or mental disabilities. After you pass away, the trust will dispose of your property according to your wishes for the needs of your special child. It ensures that your special child can maintain a happy and comfortable life and guarantees that you have no worries.

Special Kid Trust Fund Talk and Dental Checking

Date: 10th April, 2021
Venue: Tender Touch Paediatric Rehab Clinic
Activity: Special Kid Trust Fund Talk and Dental Checking

After patiently waiting for the end of the MCO lockdown, EverCare Sdn Bhd successfully organized a physical event for the Special Kid Trust Fund Talk. We took numerous precautionary steps to ensure the safety of all attendees, and our collaborators at Tender Touch Paediatric Rehabilitation Centre also went above and beyond to ensure a safe and successful event.

Tender Touch is not just a professional children’s physiotherapy center, but a caring one as well. They guide children through therapies with love, teaching them to crawl, walk, and express themselves little by little. For children with special needs, these simple actions can be a challenge, but Tender Touch’s patient approach helps them overcome obstacles and grow happily.

EverCare Sdn Bhd understands the struggles of parents, especially the worry of what will happen to their children if they are gone. Through the survey with the parents, we realised a lot of parents biggest concerns were “ Who can take care of my special kid after my passing?” and “How much should I prepare for the kid?” That’s why we believe the Special Children’s Trust Fund is so crucial – it provides a gift of love from heaven, allowing these children to grow up carefree and happy. At Evercare, we truly care about and protect our clients.
In addition to the talk, EverCare would like to extend our gratitude to Dr. Dennis Lee and his team for providing free dental checkups to all the special kids. We deeply appreciate his professionalism and care for these children. Dealing with special needs children during dental checkups requires an immense amount of patience, and we truly salute Dr. Dennis for his unwavering patience and dedication.

Where is my hope and future?

Date: 12th July, 2022
Venue: Charity Home, Klang
Event: Where is my hope and future?

While visiting a charity home in Klang last year, I was deeply impressed by a girl named Chloe. While I was cleaning the bedroom, I noticed her gazing up at the sky alone, as though she were missing someone. Intrigued, I approached her, and she looked at me with tears in her eyes and whispered “Daddy, mommy”. Without hesitation, I gave her a big hug, and she burst into tears. Later on, I had a meaningful conversation with Mrs. Pravina, the owner of the charity home, who shared with me the story of Chloe.
Chloe was born in 2013 into a wealthy family residing in Mont Kiara. Her father, Captain Raymond Tan, was a pilot and her mother, Mrs Tan, was a nurse. However, Chloe was diagnosed with Down Syndrome, which prompted Mrs Tan to quit her job and provide full-time care for Chloe. Despite the challenges of constantly falling sick and requiring comprehensive physiotherapy to improve her living skills, Chloe’s parents remained dedicated to her well-being.

Unfortunately, tragedy struck when Chloe was only four years old. Her father passed away in a car accident on the way to the airport. However, the family received RM2 million from the company as an accident death claim within a month. The sudden loss had a profound impact on Mrs Tan, who struggled with depression a year later. Matters worsened when Mr Tan lost RM100K to a money game trap, causing Mrs Tan to relapse and require hospitalization for mental illness treatment. As a result, Mrs Tan lost guardianship of Chloe, and her uncle became the legal guardian. However, Chloe was later found in an NGO Charity Home after five years due to a lack of funds. Unfortunately, the money was misused, and Chloe lost access to physiotherapy and skill development treatments, which severely impacted her quality of life.

Had Chloe’s parents set up a Trust Fund during their lifetime, her fate could have been different. Unfortunately, it’s too late for Chloe, and the mismanagement of funds destroyed her promising future. Chloe lost not only her parents and friends but also her ability to smile and hope for a better tomorrow.

A True Story About Special Kid, Ridzuan Visiting Special Kid :” A True Story about Ridzuan”

Date: 29th March 2019
Venue: Kajang, Selangor
Event: A True Story About Special Kid, Ridzuan Visiting Special Kid :” A True Story about Ridzuan”

As per my routine, I paid a visit to my client Dr. Azri’s house during Raya festivities. During our conversation, I discovered that he had a special child named Ridzuan. Dr. Azri confided in me that Ridzuan was his sole concern, and although taking care of him was challenging, he had accepted the fact and always endeavoured to provide the best care possible for his son.

“Choo, sebenarnya yang paling risau saya ialah siapa nak jaga Ridzuan selepas peninggalan isteri dan saya sendiri? Duit jagaan dari mana? Ini memang risaukan saya selama-lama ini. Choo, ada solusi yang baik ke?”

“Dr, I think “Tabung Amanah Kanak-kanak Khas” boleh membantu. Biar Choo jelaskann untuk Dr. Bolehkah Dr ceritakan pasal kejadian Ridzuan?”

So, I started my first Special Kid Trust Fund for Ridzuan after story sharing from Dr Azri.

Ridzuan was borne at 2012.He was a happy baby who loves to laugh. We showered him with love, and spent most of our time to take care of him. However, when Ridzuan was six months old, he felt ill with a high fever and had a seizure that left him unable to talk or move. Ridzuan was diagnosed with permanent brain damage due to Brain Meningitis. It was a difficult time for us and Ridzuan to accept the fact. We sent him for physiotherapy treatment to improve his motto skill. Ridzuan slowly regained his ability to move his limbs and communicate with us through facial expressions.

Last month, I had a minor car accident, which made my wife worry about what would happen to Ridzuan if I passed away just now? They decided to contact Juliet Choo, an experienced estate planner, who helped them set up a Special Kid Trust Fund to take care of Ridzuan’s future expenses. The total fund size RM1.5 Mil Life Takaful Hayat was set up to take care of Ridzuan for the next 20 years.
Sadly, Dr Azri passed away due to a heart attack after three years. Immediately, Juliet Choo helped Ridzuan to kick start the Trust Fund and the wife started to receive RM8000 very month from the Trustee Company, which relieved her of financial worries. The Trust Fund proved to be fully functional and provided crucial assistance to the family during their challenging time.
Now, Ridzuan was eleven years old. He grew well with continuously therapy treatment. His mother, Pn Sofia would bring Ridzuan to visits his father’s resting place every year. Although Dr Azri is no longer with them, the family still carried on their life as usual under the Special Kid Trust Fund until today.

I felt relieved and proud to have set up the Trust Fund for Dr. Azri’s son. The Trust Fund provided support and hope for both Pn. Siti and Ridzuan to carry on with their lives without depending on others. By creating this future hope for Ridzuan, I had fulfilled my mission of providing for a special child.
