Mr Ahmat, 70 years old, currently resides in a nursing home in Singapore. He suffers from a severe form of cognitive impairment after two serious strokes more than 10 years ago left him paralysed. Mr Ahmat is unable to talk and recognise family members and close friends. He also suffers from diabetes.
Mr Ahmat’s daughter, Miss Dian, 27 years old, is the current sole breadwinner. Even though Miss Dian is working as an executive, the heavy burden of her father’s nursing home fees, having to care for her mother and paying of her education loan is taking a toll on her financially and she has incurred various debts with Singapore Power and HDB. She also has difficulties paying for her father’s nursing home fees and has incurred arrears with the home. Even though Mr Ahmat’s fees are subsidised, his fees are still high and Miss Dian is unable to afford the monthly bill.
Miss Dian is unable to continue paying for her father’s nursing home fees. As the sole breadwinner, the full responsibility falls on her shoulders and she receives little financial support from relevant authorities. She is also paying off her education loan which takes a significant portion of her pay and leaves her with a small portion of money left.
ROHI would therefore like to raise S$430.14 a month for three months for Mr Ahmat’s nursing home fees so that Mr Ahmat is able to continue staying in the nursing home and continues to receive the necessary care.
