This is a composite case description developed with health and social care workers grappling with Singapore’s growing chronic disease burden. The case focuses on (a) a typical household with a typical housing arrangement in Singapore, the HDB flat; (b) a care plan consistent with healthcare staffing policies for an aging population, which relies heavily on foreign domestic workers to support frail older people with dependency for activities of daily living at home when family caregivers have left home or are in the workforce; (c) a common age-related chronic condition and its particular care requirements; and (d) care at home that typifies “aging in place” in accordance with healthcare planning policy.
