Property News: Third Assisted-Living Facility Opens in Sembawang

Singapore’s third assisted-living facility for seniors opened on Saturday (14 March 2020) behind Sembawang Shopping Centre. The facility aims to encourage seniors to be more active, interactive, and independent while still being taken care of by trained caregivers. The other two facilities are in Adam Road and Bukit Timah.

What is the Minimum Tenure for Assisted Living?

The minimum tenure is six months, with prices ranging from $4,000 to $5,000 a month for services like laundry, utilities and one trained staff member to every eight seniors. There are no subsidies for this.

What are the Requirements?

Residents need to fulfil some requirements before they are given consideration to stay – they should be able to perform four out of six activities of daily living:

  • Eating
  • Bathing
  • Grooming
  • Walking
  • Taking medications
  • Going to the toilet

The Sembawang facility features technology like motion sensors and Amazon Alexa voice assistants linked to a laptop, allowing a caregiver to speak directly with the room’s occupant via telephone. You can also find a lift and a 10m by 4m swimming pool.

The Government has recently announced a similar scheme that will see Singapore’s first Housing Development Board (HDB) assisted-living flats being rolled out in Bukit Batok in May. The new flats aim to provide seniors 65 and above, a housing option for independent living with care available, if needed.

Trying to sell an old flat? Our team can assist senior HDB sellers with their financial calculations, free of charge.

If you are looking for a flat that caters to your needs, we can guide you through the process! Ohmyhome’s team of experienced and knowledgeable property agents are here to help.
