Abstract: This study was undertaken to review and examine the existing Singapore’s senior housing policies, and to suggest improvements to the existing senior housing policies in light of international policies and experiences. Currently, the Singapore Government has devised several senior housing policies such as the Studio Apartment Scheme, Reverse Mortgage Scheme, Lease BuyBack Scheme and Elderly-Friendly Designed Program to tackle the housing needs of our ageing population. To determine the effectiveness of the existing Singapore government’s senior housing policies, both qualitative and quantitative research were conducted. More specifically on the quantitative approach, a questionnaire was conducted and 198 number of elderly’s responses were discussed and analysed, to investigate the elderly’s perception on the current senior housing policies and how it could be improved. With regards to the survey findings and international senior housing policies and experiences, three recommendations were suggested to improve the Singapore’s existing senior housing policies: 1) Introducing Rental Housing Scheme, 2) Building more Studio Apartment and 3) Offering loans for elderly friendly modification to homes.
