Home Care Services​

Our home-based services provide care for home-bound clients mainly in the western region of Singapore. Our services include home medical, home nursing and home therapy.

The service is managed by a dedicated team who strives to provide holistic care, and improve the health and well-being of our clients. We also work closely with caregivers to optimise care for their loved ones at home.

At St Luke’s Hospital, holistic care is:

(we take ownership of our patients’ health and well-being)

(we manage patients in their social situation, priorities and context)
