Singapore, like any other countries in the world, is facing ageing population. Currently there are about 10% of population who aged 65 years old and above, but this proportion will increase tremendously to 20% by 2020. In fact, the Singapore government have a Healthcare 2020 masterplan to deal with this influx. However, 2 years have passed since the roll out of the masterplan, efforts have being concentrating to build more hospitals, community hospitals and nursing homes to increase the bed count significantly, but will that be good enough?

A study done by US home care service providers, Home Instead Senior Care (2010), showed that seniors and their adult children know little about their care options, are badly misguided about the costs of those options and inadequately informed about the financial resources needed to cover the costs. We would want to ask if Singapore is also facing the same problem.

E mailing group for HomeHealthcare Services

Home Healthcare Services are increasingly becoming sought after with the public system and the charity groups setting up home care programs for aging and dying in place concept.

Home medical includes seeing patients at their own homes or in nursing homes. This group serves to link up private service providers to governmental and charitable organisations. It is set up by Founder and Director of Lotus Eldercare, Dr Tan Jit Seng, as part of the his services to push home medical services forward in Singapore. This service is free of charge and health providers like home nursing and home therapy providers can e mail us to be included into the group as well if interested.

Institutions interested to obtain medical or other health services can e mail to

Your e mail will be forwarded to all the members and interested care providers will contact you. As this is only another platform to source for care providers, we will not be responsible for any failure of getting service through the group. There will be no link up fees or whatsoever as well since this is an effort to support home based health services.





Lotus Eldercare was invited as a panel speaker in the annual Asia Business Conference on the 9th of March 2014 in Harvard Business School. http://www.asiabusinessconference.org/2014/

This year's topic under Healthcare section was on Reverse Innovation of Healthcare delivery. The forum focuses on the current healthcare markets throughout Asia, talking about the investments, the supply chain and the manpower needs.

Speakers include Health IT expert from MIT, Health Investment Director from Goldman Sachs, CEO from one of the pharmaceuticals and Microsoft's health and social service division.  

On healthcare demand and investments, a lot of focus in Asia is now in China. With a aging population and growing demand for more healthcare supports especially in the aging population, there is a great demand for health and chronic care services in China.

The use the ITs for the more remote regions and the lack of an army of trained health service personnel are also big challenges. These challenges must be tackled with the support of sound government policies and innovative processes with collaborations from the private service providers to delivery seamless care support to patients and their families.
