Admission to a welfare home is a last resort, only after the resident has exhausted other avenues such as community-based care options," said the MSF, which funds voluntary welfare organisations to run the homes. BBHA is run by Sathya Sai Social Service.

The number of residents in these homes has been stable - between 1,880 and 1,960 each year - for the past five years. Fewer new residents have been admitted as the elderly have more community and home- based care options now, said an MSF spokesman. She added: "People who are admitted to welfare homes have exhausted these community options and have more complex risks and needs, so it is more challenging for them to be discharged from the homes to the community."

Thus, fewer residents have been discharged in the past five years.

While most residents are elderly, these homes are not necessarily old folks' homes. As of the end of April, nearly one in 10 residents was aged below 50. Younger residents are admitted usually because of psychiatric problems or alcohol addictions, which affect their ability to hold a job, said the MSF spokesman.

Six of the 12 homes are in Pelangi Village, a social welfare complex near the Institute of Mental Health in Buangkok. Most house residents with chronic psychiatric disorders, usually schizophrenia. The other homes, like BBHA, are sited near housing estates so residents can engage with the community.

BBHA has 58 staff and 185 residents. As of the end of April, 44 per cent of residents had been there for one to five years. Eleven per cent are long- time stayers - of 16 to 20 years.

Residents follow a set schedule: They sleep at 8pm and wake at 6am; four hours are set aside for meals, and the rest for various activities.

When ST visited on a Monday morning, some were playing chess and mahjong and exercising. With most residents being able-bodied, the home looked more lively than a typical nursing home. Programmes train residents in areas like social etiquette and financial management, to help them achieve self-reliance, reintegrate into the community and live independently again.

Looking ahead, Mrs Tu Kiang Leong, superintendent of the home since 2011, hopes such homes will have smaller capacities.

She said: "In today's context, many of the elderly residents are educated. They know what they want, and you must be ready to justify (your actions)... If you have too big a group in the homes, it may be more difficult to meet their needs."

MSF did not give details on future plans for such homes, but said it "regularly reviews the trends and projections for welfare homes".
