A Gift of Health for 86-Year-Old Ah Ma

[fa icon="calendar"] Apr 21, 2017 11:32:23 AM / by Ann Lopez Aziz

How do you show your love for your grandmother?

Apple Tay gave her Ah Ma an extraordinary gift of “health”.

Daily elderly care service

Ah Ma suffered a mild stroke a couple of years back, which resulted in physical weakness. Her condition worsened when she slipped and fell in the bathroom one day and had to undergo a hip replacement.

Though the 86-year-old had regular visits to the chiropractor and physiotherapy, she was disheartened by the lack of progress and requested that her children stop “wasting” money on her improbable rehabilitation.

Apple sought and found another way to improve her grandmother’s mobility without upsetting her further. “I wanted to give my grandma something meaningful and useful to aid her recovery,” she said.

Apple engaged a Health Care Assistant (HCA) twice a week for three hours to help Ah Ma with simple exercises in the comfort of her own home. The HCA also shared some valuable knowledge with Ah Ma's domestic helper, and one of it was the proper way to handle an elderly with mobility issues.

“I booked a Health Care Assistant online through CaregiverAsia and it’s affordable!” Apple exclaimed. A friend recommended the online healthcare service provider platform to her so she felt inclined to try it – and she was glad she did. “Though I booked online, I requested to do a phone interview with the caregiver because it was my first time. I was thankful that CaregiverAsia facilitated the interview even though it is not their common practice for online bookings,” the 22-year-old explained.

Apple openly admired CaregiverAsia’s easy-to-navigate website, as well as the online booking process. “I find the platform innovative and efficient for people looking to hire a caregiver. Moreover, I can see the caregiver’s price list, which enables me to pick the appropriate caregiver that fits my budget and needs,” she added.

Apple couldn’t be happier that her Ah Ma is continuing her journey to recovery right where she feels most comfortable – at home. A satisfied client, Apple recommends CaregiverAsia to everyone: “It is a quick, efficient and transparent way of getting a daily elderly care service. I don't see any reason not to.”
