Helping Your Elderly Loved Ones Live a Happier, More Comfortable Life With Our Caregivers
Whenever an elderly loved one is diagnosed with a health problem in Singapore, family members frequently assume the responsibility of the primary caregiver. As we may believe we can handle things on our own at first, a lack of practical caregiving abilities, awareness, and assistance can degrade healthcare quality and escalate caregiver burnout.
Our caregivers can aid you if you require more extended care to treat advanced conditions or temporary assistance as you step away from looking after others or focus on yourself.
What are Caregivers?
Caregivers offer care to individuals who require consistent or daily assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs). The care recipients, who range from children to elderly adults and have chronic medical conditions or disabilities, can stay in domestic or institutional settings.
Caregivers can also assist with post-operative management. The few who live alone or are unfamiliar with good care practices frequently return to the hospital after being released. Professional caregivers can assist with everyday activities and ensure that treatment persists beyond acute care, guaranteeing complete healing and minimizing hospitalization.
Live-in caregivers also assist the seniors with specialized housework and take them to medical appointments. Even yet, they cannot assist other family members with essential household tasks.
Our Caregiver Partners
Our caregivers are all trained, accredited, and authorised to provide the care and support that your elderly relatives need.
What Is the Benefit of Having Caregivers in Singapore? And Why We Provide the Best Caregiving Services?
Having an extra set of hands can significantly reduce the strain on family caregivers, either momentarily or over time.
Professional and qualified caregivers who deemed competent knowledge and essential skills needed can help you take up the slack and lead you through your caregiving journey, assuring that your loved one gets the support and attention they need. Keeping a trained expert on hand, such as one of our caregivers, can support with the following roles that provide integrated care:
Support with activities of daily living (ADLs), which includes feeding, showering, clothing, going to the toilet, transportation, and continence management.
Lending your loved one a sympathetic ear and expressing your concern and support. You and your senior relative can participate in social support groups in the community.
Health and Wellness Management
Ascertain that your loved one engages in physical activities, maintains a healthy diet, and receives their medications on time.
Helping With Assistive Devices
For not just the ageing seniors but for their caregivers, assistive devices are a vital helper. Caregivers explore how assistive tools can assist with mobility, communication, cleanliness and hygiene, and agility when caring for a senior at home.
Enhanced elderly health and well-being have been linked to stress management. The best caregiver Singapore that we work with use meditation, cognitive exercises, pilates, and breathing exercises to enable the elderly to cope with stress.
Our Caregivers’ Training
After a rigorous interview procedure with our nurse recruiters, our caregivers earned their degrees and credentials overseas and were handpicked. Only those who complete our caregiver training have been accepted as they have the necessary nursing knowledge, personality, and deep commitment to elderly care.
Since our inception, we have invested extensively in training as the innovators of specialized live-in caregiver services in Singapore. Through specialists in nursing and geriatrics, we have developed complete training and a caregiver support action plan for caregivers.
Why Choose Our Caregivers?
Professional caregivers have an additional responsibility to provide emotional support and encouragement to families and for the patient. Family caregivers, particularly lone caregivers, frequently find it reassuring to talk about their experiences with some who recognizes how difficult caregiving can be, not just for the care recipients.
We’ll work with you to create a tailored treatment plan centred on your loved one’s condition, medical needs, and other preferences for home care services, as well as make recommendations to assist with financial support for your older loved ones.
