Caregivers Training Grant (CTG)
Caregivers Training Grant (CTG)
The Caregivers Training Grant is a $200 annual subsidy that lets caregivers attend approved courses to better care for their loved ones.
The $200 subsidy is provided for each care recipient every financial year (from April to March the following year).
If more than 1 caregiver would like to attend training for the same care recipient, the $200 would need to be shared among the family members.
The list of courses available under the Caregivers Training Grant can be found on this e-calendar. Depending on the course, the trainer could conduct the class in your home, or in a classroom at a training centre. You can also use a computer or other electronic devices to learn, by watching videos and reading training materials.
According to the Agency of Integrated Care, you must pay at least $10 course fees after registering for a course.
- $200 / year for approved caregiver training course
- This can be used for eligible caregivers of the care recipient, including foreign domestic workers if they are the main caregivers of the person with disability.
Find out more about existing government grants and subsidies you can get via our Policy Summary Page.
- The care recipient must be a Singapore Citizen or Permanent Resident.
- The care recipient must be aged 65 and older, OR have a disability as by a qualified healthcare practitioner
- The caregiver must be the person in charge of caring for the care recipient (this can include family members and foreign domestic workers).
- The caregiver must complete the training course and receive a certificate of attendance if there is one.
Take note that the grant is tied to the care recipient, not the number of caregivers. If there is more than one caregiver taking care of the same person, all of them are eligible for the grant, but it is still capped at $200 per year.
For example, if there are two caregivers taking care of Mrs Foong , the total grant still amounts to $200 per year and not $400, as there is only one care recipient.

What our customers say
Right from the start from signing up for an account, to making a booking on the app, to the confirmation of a Care Asst and to the whole visit concluding, its all a seamless and worry free process. Loved this service and would recommend it to anyone who requires the extra pair of hands and legs
Have been using this for a year to help my grandfather who frequently gets aspiration pneumonia and has difficulty leaving the house. The app is so easy to use, and the cherry on top is the wonderful service behind the app. Had some difficulty finding a doctor recently and Hakim called me back personally twice to ensure a doctor was found. Thank you so much, cannot recommend this app more.
Very responsive app, with options to chat with caregiver, review reports and contact support team for assistance.
My mum’s helper was hospitalised suddenly and I needed urgent help to take care of my mum who has advanced dementia. Homage was able able to find caregivers for my mum within a very short notice. The caregivers possessed the skill sets that I had requested and were of great help to me in my time of need. Thank you Homage!
Homage CP render their professional service to my dad who is a dialysis patient. CP assigned to wheel my dad to & fro from Dialysis Center within 300m walking distance. They are capable to load & unload my dad from wheelchair independently. They are friendly too. I'm looking forward to their next visit.
Had a good experience with Homage's teleconsultation. The doctor is qualified, friendly and guided me on examination. She also explained my symptoms to me in detail, which is useful. The report provided has detailed information, and medicine was delivered to me on the same day even though my appointment was in the evening.
Response from Homage is fast. And the physiotherapist assigned is professional in assessing and guiding my mom in her session.
