Stressed with caregiving? Need someone to stand-in for a couple of hours (e.g. transport services, medical appointments) or to have a trusty partner to care for your loved ones on a regular basis? Don't worry, you're not alone. I truly understand this because I am the sole caregiver for my mom who has been recently diagnosed with dementia.
I have a fair bit of experience working with elderly folks (dementia, strokes, etc.) and children (ASD, down syndrome). I can speak Mandarin, English and Cantonese fluently. However, my Hokkien and Malay are limited to "Hi, what's your name?" and "Have you eaten?" I will be perfectly happy to simply sit around and have a chat with the client.
I don't want to come across as writing an ad for Tinder but I truly believe that chemistry is important for this line of work. It is only when clients enjoy my company that caregiving becomes fun and satisfying.
