What are some good ways to give allowance to your parents?

Some people mentioned we could top up their CPF to get more tax rebate. Is it a good way to give our parents the allowance? Also would be good to hear more hacks to this

Top up MA is good. Because old people tend to use more medical claim. Plus, CPF MA or SA/RA got higher interest rate.

If your parent not in immediate need of money, CPF top up is good.​​​
