FROST & SULLIVAN SINGAPORE HOME HEALTHCARE SERVICE OF THE YEAR 2015
Apart from Home Personal Care which includes personal grooming, companionship and mentally stimulating exercises, health-related services are also provided by trained nurses, doctors, physiotherapists and occupational therapists. More recently, NTUC Health also worked with the government to pilot interim caregiving services where elderly who are discharged from hospitals and awaiting permanent caregiving arrangements (eg. arrival of domestic workers), can be taken care of in their homes.
Care@home works actively to address the manpower needs for eldercare services. It worked with the government to develop the Place and Train programme in 2013 to encourage more people such as back-to-work mums and mid-career professionals, to join the eldercare sector. It also offers caregiver training for family members and domestic workers on the proper techniques of care for the elderly.
