IN A nursing home in Johor Baru, a 90-year-old woman waits patiently for a visit from her family.
Madam Kong A W is one of 14 Singaporeans who live at the City Heart Care nursing home. Most enjoy visits from their families who live across the Causeway.
Madam Kong has not had a visitor in the year since she moved into the home. The nursing home said Madam Kong's family stopped paying for her to be kept there after her son died.
