Care@home is an initiative with the government in 2007 to enable elderly and individuals to recuperate and age in the comfort and familiarity of their own homes by providing Home Care Services.

Care@home offers a comprehensive range of Home Care Services including Home Personal Care which comprises of companionship, personal hygiene, and respite care etc (read here for more), Home Nursing, Home Therapy, Home Medical and Interim Caregiver Services. Care@home has a team of Care Associates, Doctors, Nurses, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, and Trained Caregivers, who provide these Home Care Services that are not limited to seniors, but also to any individual in need of assistance for recuperation who does not have a caregiver at home.

More recently, NTUC Health has worked with the government to pilot Interim Caregiver Services where elderly and individuals 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 actively seeks to address health and elder care needs as the population ages. Care@home works closely with the government to develop the Place and Train programme in 2013 to encourage more people including back-to-work mothers and mid-career professionals, to join the health and eldercare sector. Caregivers training is also available for family members and domestic workers on the proper techniques of care.
