The Ministry of Health introduced new guidelines for home and day care services on Saturday 25 April 2015 that will enable service providers to work towards delivering quality care for the elderly.
The guidelines spell out the expected outcomes in four main areas: the provision of holistic care services that are coordinated and comprehensive; the safety and quality of care; "informed and enabling care" such that beneficiaries and caregivers have autonomy in making care decisions; and organisational excellence.
Such guidelines offer even more peace of mind to caregivers and improve the quality of life for the elderly.
