Coming Home to Home

From providing long-term residential to short-term respite care services, our care team of staff nurses, nursing aides and healthcare assistants are available round the clock to support and tend to our residents in a nurturing home-like environment.

We work closely with families to personalise and manage the support each adult child on the autism spectrum requires. To help families in their planning, a short trial stay (five days maximum) can also be arranged to ascertain their child's suitability and adaptability to the SAAH environment.

Application Process

To begin your journey with SAAH, please approach a social worker of any Social Service Agency for help in submitting your application to SG Enable. Meanwhile, you may download the application form here. Acceptance to SAAH is subject to the assessment of suitability and vacancies.
