Just a couple of months ago, my husband’s uncle who is 89 years old and suffering from dementia had a mild stroke when he was holidaying at his son’s house in Kuala Lumpur. He had to be hospitalized for 2 weeks and because of the stroke, he could not sit up or walk on his own. It was a distressing time for uncle and also his family because there was no one who could take stay with him all day when he was hospitalized and also after he had been discharged and staying at the son’s home.
A friend recommended a part-time maid to the family and due to the urgency of this case, the family decided to engage the part-time maid. However, the maid was not trained to take care of ailing seniors and after a week, she did not turn up for work. All these could have been avoided if we have heard of Caregiver Asia, an online platform for health and caregiving services. It helps to connect home care clients and their families with professional caregivers. This platform allows the public to access on-time, trusted and transparent home care services for their families. There are over 5,000 freelance professional caregivers in their platform.
The caregivers listed on the platform are specially trained, certified/ accredited/ experienced in their service specializations to provide on-demand and high quality care.
What I like about Caregiver Asia is its user-friendly website which allows easy viewing of the services provided by the caregivers and the information is stated clearly. Just select the type of services that you are looking for, such as Dementia care, Medical Escort, Home Nursing, Palliative Care and more. Then, narrow down the search by choosing the different categories like Medical and Nursing, Pregnancy and Childcare, and etc. You will be able to browse the profiles of the caregivers, the services they offer, their certifications and experience, as well as the rates. Very simple right?
