In order to recognise and encourage caregiving, a system would be set up whereby Singaporeans bank in the hours they spend on volunteer care for use as credits to get care respite or have others care for them later in life.
Singapore's population for those ageing is on a very sharp rise, thus the need for this report. It does seem like finding the number of volunteers to help out the elderly is fast becoming more difficult to actually meet the rising demand. Thus, the need for this proposal, where basically if you volunteer, then the next time you need elderly help, you already bank in volunteer care through the volunteer work you had done. So, if you volunteer, then chances of you getting elderly care in the future is almost assured.
