Many of the elderly are particularly frail after being discharged from the hospital, and may need longer term care and assistance in their activities of daily living. In this post, we will introduce 2 subsidies in the form of the Intermediate Long-Term Care (ILTC) subsidy which reduces medical charges, while the Caregiver Training Grant (CTG) subsidises training to acquire the skills needed to provide ongoing care for the elderly.
The ILTC subsidy offsets up to 80% of medical bills for the elderly with extended stays at ILTC facilities or that require home-based services.
