Maid for Elderly Care in Singapore

Hire a maid who can provide the best care for your elderly in their daily activities

Hiring Experienced Maids for In-Home Support

The need for elderly care has seen a consistent rise in recent years, and families now have various options to consider. Whether it’s placement in aged care facilities or hiring a private nurse for in-home care, both options can be financially burdensome. Universal Employment Agency offers a cost-effective and efficient alternative – the option to hire a maid with specialized experience in elderly care.

In the realm of caregiver services, a maid, often referred to as a foreign domestic worker (FDW), also goes by the names of domestic helper or caregiver when they specialize in elderly care. Presently, numerous caregiver training courses are readily available to equip foreign domestic workers with the necessary skills to offer top-quality care for your elderly family members in the comfort of your own home.

These caregiver training programs empower potential helpers with the knowledge and skills essential for the optimal care of your elderly loved ones. They are trained to assist with daily activities, comprehend the unique needs of the elderly, and provide companionship, ensuring that your loved ones are never left alone. In light of the UN’s 2017 World Population Ageing report, which underscores the aging population in Singapore, it is evident that more support is required for our elderly citizens. The median age of Singapore’s population is projected to rise, signaling a changing dependency ratio that necessitates greater attention to caregivers and companions for the elderly.

To streamline the process of hiring a foreign domestic worker, Universal Employment Agency actively participates in the Ministry of Manpower’s Advanced Placement Scheme (APS). This initiative allows potential employers to interview foreign domestic workers at the agency’s premises, eliminating the need for candidates to travel from their home countries. This is especially advantageous when hiring a maid who is already in Singapore. Before selecting a maid to care for your elderly family members, in-depth research is vital. It is crucial to ensure that the maid you hire possesses the necessary experience to cater to the specific needs of your elderly loved ones. Ideally, the maid should have formal eldercare training to provide the highest quality of care. Hiring an untrained or inexperienced maid can pose potential risks, particularly if your elderly family members have specific medical conditions.

Initiate the hiring process by conducting interviews with prospective candidates. This step ensures that the maid is not only trustworthy and caring but also experienced in elderly care. During the interview, assess her values, personality, and work ethic to guarantee a suitable fit for your family. Observe how both the maid and your elderly family members interact during the interview. It’s essential to gauge your elderly family members’ comfort and satisfaction with the helper’s services and support.

Given that elderly individuals are more susceptible to injuries, it is of utmost importance that the helper has a fundamental understanding of first aid. This knowledge not only ensures their safety but also provides peace of mind for you and your family.
