Anglo Caregivers-Why having caregiving experience matters?

How are they different from other maids?

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

Right expectations - With training, they have a better understanding of what to expect in a full time caregiving job and, thus, less likely to quit on you when they cannot keep up.

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.

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.

  • Another family member who is earning an income and living with the elderly person at the same residential address may be the employer.

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.
