The assistive devices and services provided within the National Development Fund for persons with disabilities (rather than just dementia) are free but after submitting a complete request form (National Council for Persons with Disabilities (NCPWD), 2019). The new application handbook is designed to clarify how decisions are made at the fund by providing the method and criteria for approving or rejecting applications. For instance, priority would be given to those who require the device for learning, training, or work related environments and those who have never received an assistive device unless it is worn out or too small for their age (National Council for Persons with Disabilities, 2011).
