Ms He Ting Ru asked the Minister for Social and Family Development (a) when is the Future Care Planning Playbook expected to be finalised and published; and (b) how does the Ministry plan to distribute the playbook to relevant stakeholders.
Mr Masagos Zulkifli B M M: SG Enable will be working with Social Service Agency (SSA) partners to develop a Future Care Planning Playbook. The Playbook will provide caregivers with resources and guided support to develop a future care plan while prioritising the needs and choices of their family member with disability. This can enable conversations on important life choices to start earlier and allow a longer runway for caregivers and persons with disabilities to identify and develop suitable support and development options.
The playbook is expected to be ready by 2024. The playbook will be made available online, and disability SSAs will be trained on how to use the playbook progressively.
