Anglo Caregivers-Why having caregiving experience matters?

How are they different from general maids?

Right way to care for elderly - Trained in the relevant caregiving techniques, they have the knowledge to provide safe, proper care your elderly parent needs.

Right expectations - With training and orientation, they have a better understanding of what to expect in a full time elderly care job.

For example, sometimes the elderly can experience mood swings or sometimes a senior needs help a few times at night for toileting. With this understanding, they are less likely to quit on you when they cannot keep up.

Changing domestic maids frequently can cause a lot of distress to the elderly person who needs to adjust again and again to a new maid.

Trained before departure - Avoid the trouble of your untrained maid having a rude shock at the full demands of caregiving when you try to hand over to her. Some helpers find it difficult to pick up certain essential skills such as how to transfer or change diapers.

What Clients Say About Us

Patrick Mah

I found Anglo Nurses in my google search when I was in urgent need to engage a good caregiver for my elderly father last year. I contacted Vincent Wong, and he was very helpful and patient to talk to my father. He even visited my father at the hospital ward with his iPad and arranged a live conference with the Indonesian Agency to allow my father to interview and select the maid of his choice. The paper work was done efficiently, and the caregiver arrived in time before my father discharge. The caregiver took good care of my father for the past 1.5 yrs before his passing on Sep. I am grateful to the caregiver and Vincent for their services.

Jaslin Lim

I have been liaising with Vincent with all my needs for a caregiver for my dad. Vincent didn’t disappoint me and was very patient throughout the whole process. He answered all my requests and sometimes even late night which I shouldn’t be disturbing him.

The caregiver which was assigned to me was a good one. Experienced and took good care of my dad. Unfortunately my dad passed on after two months otherwise the caregiver has been of great help for my dad and the family.

I will not hesitate to recommend Anglo Nurse to anyone who needs a caregiver.

My late mother was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer in late 2018. Upon the diagnosis and her condition then, I knew that we would need a full-time caregiver. Several options were considered, and I was glad to have found Anglo Nurses & Caregivers as part of my Google search. I gave a call to Anglo Nurses & Caregivers and spoke with Vincent. He understood what I needed and to cut the story short, the caregiver arrived within the next 2 weeks. The caregiver recommended did not disappoint me. She took care of my late mother right till the very last day, even sacrificing her sleep in the last few weeks before my mother's recent demise.

I had an emergency situation and needed a caregiver urgently. Luckily, I had the good fortune of meeting Vincent Wong from Anglo Nurses and Caregivers. He came across as very sincere and willing to assist. He is very different from the other agencies – in a very positive way. He hears you out as to what you need, and he matches you with the most appropriate caregiver that he has. I am very happy to state that he managed to get me a caregiver in record time. The caregiver is now taking care of my family member – and she is doing a fantastic job. Thank you Vincent. You guys are fantastic. I highly recommend that you give Anglo Nurses a call if you have any caregiver needs. 5 STARS from me.

Leslie Han

We had engaged an Indonesian caregiver from Anglo Nurses & Caregiver in 2019. During the selection process, Vincent had checked on our requirements carefully and suggested the appropriate caregiver based on her experience. We had taken his advice and employed the caregiver. Siti (not her real name) has been with us for more than 9 months and we are very happy with her performance. She could look after my bedridden mom very well and has good working attitude. I would highly recommend Anglo Nurses & Caregiver for your caregiver needs. They have a good selection of professional caregivers and will go the extra length to ensure the correct caregiver placement for you.

Linda Zuber

I had an urgent need for a helper to care for my mum who was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer.  Vincent & his team did a quick follow up & the helper recommended was able to come in within 3 weeks. Unfortunately, my mum passed on but I proceeded with the arrangement to aid in my dad's care.  It was the best decision I made.  My helper, Sri, was fully capable & immediately took over my dad's care and the running of the household. With her commitment & sense of duty, I was assured of good support. Thank you Vincent & team for the recommendation. Great job indeed!

Top Questions

Can elderly hire a maid?

For a person to be an employer of a maid, the person:

  1. Be 21 years old and above.
  2. Must not be an undischarged bankrupt
  3. Have the mental capacity to fully understand and discharge his or her responsibility as an employer

The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) will consider a person’s financial ability to hire, maintain and upkeep the maid in an acceptable accommodation.

As an elderly person typically no longer works and does not have monthly income, supporting documents such as fixed deposits or bank statements may be used to substantiate the elderly person’s financial ability to hire.

Alternatively,

  • The elderly person can apply for a maid under the Joint Income Scheme or the Sponsorship Scheme; or
  • Another family member who is earning an income and living with the elderly person at the same residential address may be the employer.

Do they do household chores?

Yes, other than taking care of the elderly person, they can help perform household chores for the family residing there such as cooking, cleaning, washing and ironing.

Read of our comprehensive guide on grants here.

What is the difference between a normal maid and your agency’s trained maid for elderly care?

With proper elderly care training before departing for Singapore, they not only have the right skills, but also a better understanding of what to expect when taking care of your elderly loved one.

They know what it is like to change diapers, assist in cleaning up after toileting or transferring a wheelchair-bound person from bed to wheelchair.

They understand that the job requires them to wake up a few times at night to attend to the elderly. These can include:

  • Turning and positioning a bedbound elderly to prevent pressure injuries (bedsores); or
  • Changing diapers to reduce likelihood of diaper rash or urinary tract infections for wheelchair-bound elderly; or
  • Assisting to go to the toilet to prevent falls for walking seniors.

Employers commonly encounter issues where their new maids do not want to want to change diapers due to the smell, do not to wake up at night to care for the elderly, complain of backache or difficulties from transferring bed to wheelchair, unable to pick up skills taught while in the hospital for training and handover of care.

When you hire a trained maid for elderly care, you can avoid the trouble of spending time, money and effort to hire anew maid only to have her quit on you when she cannot pick up the skills or find the demands of caregiving get too much for her.
