How much does it cost to put a parent in nursing homes in Singapore?
Nursing homes in Singapore can be those of Voluntary Welfare Organizations (VWO) or private ones. The basic cost for private nursing homes today is from $1,200 to $3,800 a month in Singapore. However, the Ministry of Health (MOH) provides government subsidies to elderly Singaporean citizens receiving home care from private nursing homes. Usually, the cost varies depending on the level of home care that the resident requires and the number of residents per room.
Red Crowns has competitive prices with the services we offer. With more affordable prices, our service package provides a quality healthcare system, amenities, and daily essentials for our residents. We are always improving our services to provide our residents with the best medical care and nursing homes without them breaking the bank.
How long can a person stay in a nursing home?
The National Care Planning Council stated that the elderly stay in a nursing home for up to 835 days on average. Meanwhile, short-term nursing care residents and those who have early release stayed in nursing homes for 270 days on average.
The duration of stay is heavily dependent on the home medical needs of the permanent resident. Those who require long-term nursing care spend more time in nursing homes. Those who require short-term care or those who attend elderly daycare centres spend a shorter time. No matter the duration of the stay that your elderly loved ones require, Red Crowns can provide a safe home for them to be in. And rest assured that we will take care of your elderly loved ones with the best rehabilitation care we can provide.
