Singh Corporate Responsibility
Here at Singh, we are proud to support the Alzheimer’s Association. As the owner and manager of several Senior Living Communities, we work closely with Alzheimer’s patients and their families through our Memory Care services, and are committed to improving their lives.
For over a decade, Singh has been dedicated to fighting Alzheimer’s disease by providing support for the Alzheimer’s Association. Singh raises money for the Alzheimer’s Association through several ways, including educational workshops, employee initiatives such as Casual for a Cause, the Chocolate Jubilee, and Memory Walk.
Since 2001, Singh has sponsored the Chocolate Jubilee, an event for contributors to the Alzheimer’s Association. We support the event by hosting a table in the chocolate tasting room, and Singh chefs from our Waltonwood Senior Living prepare their most indulgent desserts.
Perhaps our favorite event is the annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s, the nation's largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer care. Every August, our entire company goes above and beyond to raise money for the event, and all employees, family members and friends participate in the annual walk.
So far, Singh has raised over $150,000! To find out how you can get involved, contact a Singh employee or visit the Alzheimer’s Association Greater Michigan Chapter.
Energy Efficient Homes
All Singh homes are designed to deliver the Singh Energy Efficiency standard, which means that your new Singh home can be 20-30% more efficient than a standard home. From high-performance insulation and windows to the comfort and efficiency of a Nelson Energy Seal, to maximum efficiency heating and cooling equipment, your new home will have the energy-saving features that provide comfort and save you money now and for years to come.
In 2010, Singh built 19 Energy Rated Homes, saving homeowners an estimated $8,493 on their utility bills. The energy savings is equivalent to saving 56,316 lbs. of coal or planting over 15 acres of trees.
In an ongoing effort to reduce our impact on the environment, Singh has developed several “green” initiatives at our apartment communities, including:
- Moving toward paperless administrative and record-keeping systems to save trees and limit waste sent to landfills,
- Using products with natural or recycled components in new development projects wherever possible,
- Updating projects with new technologies that conserve energy, and
- Focusing on reducing consumptive water use by integrating new water-saving procedures in our operations.
We are committed to sustainability within the environment and our communities, and have an ongoing committee devoted to seeking out and adapting new green initiatives. Look for more exciting developments to come!
