We take great care in matching the needs of your loved one with available vacancies in our nursing homes.
After meeting the necessary requirements, interview appointments, and verified documents, the waiting time for admission to NTUC Health’s nursing homes varies depending on vacancies. We also factor in the resident's needs such as their physical and mental condition, and the amount of support required.
Speak to a referring medical social worker at a public hospital or polyclinic to check if you qualify for government subsidy, and to receive advice on subsidy application.

At NTUC Health’s nursing homes, we strive to provide quality and affordable care for your loved ones. The basic cost ranges from $700 to $4,000 a month, depending on your eligibility for MOH subsidies.
There are some potential additional charges, such as a refundable deposit, one-time admission charge, and other additional charges.
For residents who do not qualify for MOH subsidies, the basic rates start from $4,500 a month, with the actual cost dependent on the resident’s care needs and choice of accommodation (regular bedders or single bedders). Medication and other consumables are not covered by the basic rate, and may be incurred depending on your needs and preferences.
We understand that you may be concerned about affordability. Speak to us on the phone or email us, so that we can better understand your needs and expectations.
All MOH-subsidised admissions to nursing homes are done through the Agency of Integrated Care (AIC), a centralised government agency that manages the bed availability of all nursing homes in Singapore. You can approach medical social workers in public hospitals or polyclinics to submit an application to AIC for your preferred nursing home. Learn more here.
If you do not qualify for MOH subsidies or prefer to apply as a private applicant without MOH subsidies, please speak to NTUC Health's medical social workers who can guide you with the application by calling us at 6590 4300. Admission is subject to bed availability.
Fees vary based on services required. Please call us to enquire.
