To pay or not to pay, that is the question – whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer the ignominy of lesser retirement homes in the Lion City, or by paying more, upgrade.

But faux Hamlet aside, one old folks’ home in Bukit Timah is really charging uncles and aunties between S$1200 to S$3500 a month to retire there.

For that lofty sum of money, retirees at St Bernadette Lifestyle Village in Bukit Timah get to enjoy their own room with an attached bathroom that is wheelchair accessible, a shared a living room which has a sofa and television and a dining area with a small kitchenette, and a 24-hour medical concierge at the press of a button.

Oh yes, and they can invite their friends over for a barbeque or to play mahjong too .

The old folks’ home, a single-storey bungalow, can take up to 8 residents.

It’ll be opening for business next month, and the government will offer subsidies of 10 to 75 percent of the fees.
