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.
