Marigold Times provides subsidised personal home care services under Singapore's Ministry of Health scheme.

The service is provided by Care Assistants, to support home bound elderly who need help with simple daily activities. Our trained and certified Care Assistants will provide quality in-home personal care for your loved ones, as and whenever they need it, on a flexible long-term basis.

The service is provided 7 days a week, island-wide, from 8am to 10pm and the minimum booking period is one hour.

The scope of a Care Assistant’s duties include:

  • Assistance with basic activities of daily living
  • Assistance with medication
  • Elder-sitting and respite
  • Mind stimulating activities
  • Performing simple maintenance exercises as prescribed by a registered physiotherapist, occupational or speech therapist
  • Personal hygiene

Things to note:

  • If you require several hours of care per week on a long-term basis, it will be more economical for you to engage our Live-in Caregivers.
  • This option is often suitable as a long-term personal care service. If you need a short-term caregiver urgently, please engage our Respite Care services.

With Subsidy:

S$22 per hour (before applying subsidy)

Case Example:
Mdm Lim engaged a Care Assistant for 6 hours per week (S$132 before subsidy). After means-testing by the social worker, it was determined that she is eligible for a 80% subsidy so her ‘out-of-pocket’ cost is only $26.40 per week.

Without Subsidy:

S$24 per hour

There is a S$2.20 surcharge per hour after 8pm.

There is a S$22 surcharge per hour on Sundays and Public Holidays.

Payments terms are weekly or monthly.


To know which subsidy level you are eligible for, a means-test will need to be conducted by a social worker. The results of the means-test will determine your subsidy-level.
