Launched on 13 July 2013, the Viriya Elderly Medical Programme (VEMP) provides financial support to seniors with various medical conditions.
Aside from covering their daily expenses, VEMP also provides subsidies to cover other expenses such as transport, TCM treatment and other consumables.
Our social work practitioners will work with eldercare agencies and hospitals to provide community care for the seniors. Case management services will also be provided to link the beneficiaries to the required community resources.
Successful applicants are provided with S$100 worth of assistance per month and can be further supported by other VCS’ programmes and services.
