I started freelance caregiving services since 2017. I took the role as a befriender and a care companion to the elderly. The roles entails support senior elderlys to cope with their daily activities, encourge them to accept and adjust to any lifestyle changes and routines, etc. I will do my best to improve their morale and keep their spirits up, engaging in meaningful conversations with them. Selectively, encourage them to regain and improve their social interaction with open mindset. Accompany them for short walks, do simple exercises. Based on individual condition, I go along simple assessments with them such as coloring, simple mathematics sums, chinese proverbs, word search, puzzles, etc. My dialect is Hokkien but I can also speak Teochew and Cantonese. Other duties include fetching them from elderly centre to home and buying lunch of their preference.
Among my short-term caregiving assignments, following were my longest duration:
Age 83 residing in Commonwealth (Nov 2017 to Jan 2018)
Age 78 residing in Holland Road (Aug to Nov 2018)
Age 84 residing in Bedok South (Jan 2019)
Thank you and good day!
