What is the silver support scheme?
I've heard that Singapore offers a silver support scheme for the elderly. Who is the silver support scheme actually for? How do I get the silver support scheme? What are the eligibility for the scheme? Can non-Singaporeans also be registered to the Silver support scheme that is offered by the country? Can all the elderly be part of the scheme?
