Seniors recovering from a stroke or falls need to return to a safe environment, but face the challenge of planning and making the appropriate changes.

The Safe Home Scheme provides a one-stop home modification service for financially disadvantaged elderly or persons with disabilities, and enables them to regain independence. The scheme helps pay for the cost to design or retrofit a safer and more accessible home environment for these people and their caregivers.

It is currently the only community-funded initiative for home modification in Singapore and continues to supplement needs by providing greater flexibility and coordination.

Modification works could include the widening of doors, levelling of floor and building ramps for wheelchair access, lowering of light switches, installing grab bars and providing simple appliances like water heaters and electric kettles.

Your contribution will help provide assistance to needy elderly or disabled people and enable them to be more independent and safe in going about their daily activities.
