Personal Care Service (Seniors)

Started in 2014, and originally known as Care Closer to Home, Personal Care Service (Seniors) [PCS (S)] started as a pilot in collaboration with Temasek Foundation Cares before transiting to the purview of the Ministry of Health in April 2018.

PCS(S) leverages on existing services within the community to provide ‘close to home’, client-centric services to seniors. PCS (S) enables seniors to age in the community through:

  • Home-based and centre-based interventions
  • Seeking to reduce the incidence of unplanned readmissions
  • Facilitating a smooth transition for seniors back into community post-hospitalisation
  • Delaying institutionalisation through delivery of personal care services and care coordination.

Key activities include:

  • Assistance in Activities of Daily Living (ADLs)
  • Personal hygiene support
  • Providing support in purchasing of meals and groceries
  • Supporting ambulation and transfers
  • Basic nursing and health services


  • Mind-stimulating activities
  • Simple maintenance exercises
  • Medical escorts
  • Case coordination
