Homecare

With Singapore’s growing ageing population, SATA CommHealth Homecare was conceived with goals to improve quality of life for the needy and physically challenged. It aims to be a one-stop provider for affordable homecare services and supplies. In addition, basic support and training is also given to caregivers.

Our Homecare service was introduced to complement and support early discharge patients from hospitals who needed nursing service at their doorstep. It is also to facilitate step-down care to institutions with the aim of reducing the re-admission of these discharged patients while maximizing their physical and physiological recovery.
