Need Urgent Help at Home? Part Time Caregiver Could be the Answer

[fa icon="calendar"] Aug 4, 2017 4:23:25 PM / by Ann Lopez Aziz

Valerie Lim needed day and night nurses to watch over her mother, who was terminally ill.

Like many families who are looking for urgent help at home, the housewife searched and scanned the internet for nurses to care for her elderly mother. “She was already under home hospice care with the Assisi team, but I needed help to bathe her, administer injections, and watch her through the night,” Valerie said.

A part time caregiver can be the help you need when you require urgent help at home.

Before her mother’s condition turned for the worst, Valerie was the family caregiver and managed without the assistance of a helper. Not long after, her mother became almost bedridden, and Valerie had to source for help very quickly. She sent inquiries to agencies and healthcare platforms and was impressed by CaregiverAsia’s prompt attention. “CaregiverAsia was the most helpful when I was making inquiries. [CaregiverAsia representative] Stephanie showed concern and was very prompt in responding,” the housewife commented.

Valerie continued: ”Stephanie was quite flexible in helping me secure the specific profiles I was looking for in the nurses and was helpful when I needed the nurses on short notice.” Though new to online healthcare platforms, she put her faith in CaregiverAsia and engaged the day and night home nurses until her mother’s passing.

Valerie has been recommending CaregiverAsia to her friends ever since. She lauded the freelance caregivers’ excellent nursing knowledge: “Lucy and Sheron were skillful in the preparation of morphine medication for my mother, had high standards of care and hygiene, paid complete attention to my mom, and overall, very professional.”

“Lucy and Sheron were godsent and an immense help to me,” she added.

Valerie commented that she liked using the CaregiverAsia platform as she was able to make the booking online and view the nurses’ resumes promptly before making her decision.

Valerie also highlighted that there are benefits of having part time help at home. Unlike live-in helpers, part time caregivers don’t require living space and they are responsible for their own meals.

Will she book future care services with CaregiverAsia again? Valerie said yes! “I had a good experience with the two nurses, and I trust CaregiverAsia with my needs,” she concluded.
