Severely disabled Singaporeans like yourself can continue to tap on means-tested Government subsidies and various Government assistance schemes (e.g. Home Caregiving Grant, ElderFund) to complement your personal savings and family support. Government-funded safety nets such as MediFund and ComCare can also provide further assistance if you are unable to pay for your care even after Government subsidies and other means of support.
If you have challenges meeting your long-term care needs, you should contact a medical social worker at your long-term care provider, or the Agency for Integrated Care (AIC) for more advice and assistance. Alternatively, if you are already being assisted by a social worker from the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) with your daily living expenses, you may also seek help from your current social worker for your long-term care costs.
