You may be searching for some caregiving assistance to help your elderly loved one at home.
As adult children juggling full-time jobs and family commitments, you may find it difficult to be there for them when they need help every hour of the day.
Your elderly loved one may have experienced a recent change in health or mobility status such as having experienced a stroke, or decline from a chronic condition such as diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease.
It may also be due to a recently diagnosed condition like dementia, Alzheimer's Disease or cancer.
It could also be that after a period of hospitalisation, your elderly parent has become weak and could no longer walk or take care of themselves independently at home.
It is also common for care needs to arise when you notice that frequent falls at home and you are worried about your elderly parent's safety.
Live-in care is an affordable long-term home care alternative where you hire a foreign nurse aide or caregiver on a Foreign Domestic Worker work pass. The live-in caregiver lives in with your elderly parent or grandparent to provide him or her with assistance in their day-to-day care. Our live-in caregivers are from the Philippines and Indonesia and converse well in English, Mandarin or Cantonese.
Hiring your live-in nurse aide or caregiver also means that you would have someone there by your elderly parent’s side 24/7 to give him the care and support he or she needs without being checked into nursing homes or other facilities.

Having a live-in caregiver instead of day-time, non-stay-in caregivers means that your elderly parent can expect to be cared for by the same familiar face every day. The elderly can feel anxious having a different face helping him to take a bath every day.
Also, you won't have to worry about your local caregiver cancelling a shift on you last minute, leaving you with no one to care for your parent.
Having a familiar face also means that the live-in caregiver knows your parent's preference, needs, daily schedule and behavioural patterns very well. She familiar with how to handle and accommodate them accordingly.
