Taking care of loved ones with permanent disabilities can be very demanding. It requires your presence all the time. The strain may be unbearable if you are away from home, that’s why people seek helps from domestic workers.
The Foreign Domestic Worker (FDW) Grant, which is administered by the Agency for Integrated Care (AIC), has been replaced by the Home Caregiving Grant (HCG) in October 2019. HCG is a monthly subsidy from the Singapore government to support you and your loved one with permanent disabilities. If you have dependents that are living with you who require a full-time caregiver, it is worth taking some time to understand the grant.
