Affordable Assisted Living Facilities

In 2020, one in six would have joined the growing ranks of grey. And by 2030, one in four is a senior citizen. Longevity is a gift, but it is fraught with uncertainty. Local studies have shown that while more Singaporeans will live longer than ever, they may not live so well. Disability rates among the elderly are expected to rise, even as the numbers of family caregivers fall. The biggest need now is to give elderly more dignity, meaning and control over their lives. As

Singapore prepares for the silver surge, entrepreneurs, companies, non-profit groups and policymakers must innovate and find fresh care and funding models so that nursing home residents can lead lives of purpose, especially those who are physically frail but have cognitive abilities undimmed by age. Right now, many residents seem to be languishing for years in clinical, regimented, dormitory settings not because they need more skilled nursing care, but because they lack social support at home. One of the biggest gaps in today’s long-term care system, is the lack of affordable assisted living facilities. Assisted living is residential accommodation for elderly or disabled people who do not have any serious medical problems, but may require help with personal care, such as showering, dressing, or going to the toilet. It is typically much cheaper than nursing homes.

A Lack Of Aged Care Options

Interestingly, Singapore is beginning to build more nursing homes at a time when many other countries are moving away from what is referred to as the “medicalised” model for residential aged care: with uniform-clad residents and dismal, dreary dormitory-style beds that have the clinical, colourless look and feel of hospitals. Many feel that committing medically stable folk into nursing homes is to rob their lives of meaning and purpose, especially since, nursing home residents can stay for years, even decades. Significantly, rather than building more nursing homes, Europe, Australia and the US have moved into developing assisted living or continuing-care communities, where older folk can receive care, but retain some semblance of independence in home-like environments.
In the US, nursing home residents have fallen in number from 2 million in the early 1990s to around 1.4 million in 2013. In 2014, there were only 15,000 nursing homes compared to more than 30,000 assisted living or senior living communities. These are typically meant for folk who have little or no medical needs, but require help with physical needs such as feeding, showering or going to the restroom. In Singapore too, the time has come to press the pause button on building medicalised, largely cookie-cutter mega-nursing homes with multiple-bed dormitories and focus on bringing more choice and diversity into residential aged care.

Singapore should draw up better targets on providing a greater range of comfortable eldercare options. Finland, for instance, aims to have only 3 per cent of people aged 75 and above in nursing or old folks’ homes, with another 5 to 6 per cent in assisted living facilities with 24-hour care. By contrast, Singapore has enough nursing home beds for nearly 7 per cent of its 75-plus population, but hardly any assisted living facilities.

Elderly Living Alone

In Singapore, due to shrinking families, rising rates of singlehood and a desire for independence, increasing numbers of older folk live on their own. The number of Singapore citizens aged 65 and above who live alone is expected to grow from 41,000 in 2015 to 58,000 in 2020 and 92,000 by 2030. When there are no willing or able caregivers, it might be too resource-intensive to send paid caregivers to the homes of disabled seniors if all they need is personal care.

Many elderly are terrified of dying alone. According to Straits Times article in April 2016, in which a retired 85-year-old cleaner was able to get someone to wire up his one-room rental flat with CCTV

cameras because he was terrified of dying alone. Two of his neighbours died alone and people found out only by the smell.
