The fees that SAS collects from our needy residents covers only 16% of our costs. Government subvention helps to fund about 60% of our expenses. Another S$2 million needs to be raised annually from the public to sustain the SAS's cause.
Out of the S$2 million that needs to be raised annually, 50% will go to providing healthy and nutritious meals for our residents. SAS serves an average of 468,000 meals per year and close to 70% of our residents required dysphagia diet. When a resident is diagnosed with dysphagia, it is recommended that they consume specially tailored dysphagia food, known as a 'texture-modified diet'. This is because people with dysphagia usually find it safer and easier to swallow food and drink with an adapted consistency and smooth texture. Sometimes the use of a special thickening agent will be required in the preparation of the dish to get the right consistency. Therefore, SAS must cater for four different types of diets.
