Time to review subsidies for poor in nursing homes
If about half of the patients are in default in one nursing home, how many in total are in default in Singapore?
How is a family with total income of less than S$1,440 able to afford to pay the 25 per cent balance, which I understand is about S$400 a month, after the subsidy?
So, is it any wonder that so many families are defaulting on their payments?
I would like to suggest that the subsidy for needy patients be reviewed.
Also, how much of the charity donations of S$896 million last year went towards helping needy patients?
