How to Register your Elderly for a Nursing Home

Nursing homes are care facilities that cater to elderly who require assistance with daily activities like bathing, using the toilet and eating.

After coming to a decision to engage nursing home services for your loved one, the next step would be to register them for a nursing home.


When applying to stay in a nursing home, an elderly must meet the following criteria:

  1. Physically or mentally disabled because of illness
  2. Is semi-mobile, using a wheelchair or is bed-bound and required daily care and assistance with activities like walking or going to the toilet
  3. Cannot be cared for at home by their family or paid domestic worker; not suited for care options like daycare, home medical, home nursing services


Depending on the level of care required, the basic cost to stay in a nursing home ranges from $2000 to $3600 per month (before MOH subsidy). Other charges (one-time deposit, administrative charges) outside of the basic cost apply.

For more information or assistance with paying for service, contact your service provider or Medical Social Worker.
