Hi everyone. I really need your help.. 

My dad just discharged from hospital. He experiences stroke and really needs support for his daily routine. The problem is, my sibling and me have no flexible time to taking care him. So, i need an experienced nurse who can come to our home. Just for 3 days a week....

In my opinion, googling is too general. Cuz yes you can find a lot but you wouldn't know if those sites are trustworthy or not. There are a lot of cases surrounding old folks these days

Sounds like a good place to start... read as much as you can and understand the parttimer's forte.

Ya~i agree with you. But if you can do some research and verify those online platforms, i think u can no need to worry about the trustworthy problem. Btw google still is the easier way to find things.

Nowadays hire a private nurse is expensive, if u afford to pay i think that is not a problem but if u want to save money i suggest you find an aunty to help you.

How to hire private nurse anyway? Do we have to consult with the hospital to send a nurse to provide their service at our house?

if it were me i would be uncomfortable too asking neighbours for helps. it would be really awkward and they might be saying things about your family.

I just wanna share my experienced. 
4 months ago, my lil sister has participated as part timer nurse at caregiver Asia. It was really my first time heard about this website platform. Guess what, most of them must have a certificate approved by MOH. With the customer keep booking her service, her new venture has got a foot in the door. By the way, their rate really affordable and flexible of course.

U guys can look at Caregiverasia's website, their price is affordable because there are different pricing which depend on the freelancers. So u can choose which one u think is affordable.

yeap. that is one of the best thing about caregiverasia services. the service period is up to the careseeker flexibility of time so they dont need to pay for the extra hours when not using caregivers services.

well for started, most of caregiverasia parttimer have certificate approved by moh so you know they are not just some random strangers pretending knowing what they do as their job. second, the price rate are really affordable and reasonable for those are truly in needs of their services.

Hey! I heard of Caregiver before. My sister had to remove her appendix. She was in a shared-room with another girl. The girl's family was busy so they hired Caregiver to look after her during the day.

What i like about this platform is that they offer reflexible service hours, so it really is a convenient helping hand.

yup, from my observation the caregiver would come by 9 or so help the girl eat, assist her to wash herself and just stayed by her side assisting what ever necessary for her to get healthy. and i think because the caregiver have adequate background knowledge so, she also help/teach the girl some medical terminology

not bad at all, to have someone care for you after operation like that. I would be dead miserable and bored at hospital ward if no one came

No surprise that not much ppl knew about Caregiverasia right now because they just recently expanded their market to Malaysia and Taiwan even though they had been established quite long time ago already in Singapore, but after awhile I'm sure more people would be using their service after getting to know about it.

Yup, for sure the first point is very important for us, of course we dont wanna spend money on hiring someone who does not even have the minimum qualification and experience in doing jobs within this field, things aren't that easy as it seemed to be when taking care of patients with different needs.

Yeah I agree, because majority of the time the caretakers that were found outside they would not like to take short-term jobs such as for a few days or weeks and prefer long-term for at least few months, and they might even ask for deposit too just so you dont cancel their service halfway.

That is one of the main reason why I would choose Caregiverasia over the other service providers as all their freelancers would have some knowledge on the patients that they are dealing with and weren't just taking care of them by sitting at the side and playing with their phones. They were able to provide some medical advices and also some method in relieving their pain or sickness.
