Why Is Having Transfer Maids Necessary in Elder Care?

With each passing year, the demand for elderly care rises. Transferring your senior to a nursing home or employing a private nurse to provide care for your elderly at home are two expensive options for senior care. As a result, hiring a transfer maid with training and experience in elder care Singapore is the preferred and most cost-effective alternative.

Foreign Domestic Workers (FDW), often known as domestic helpers, specialise in caring for the elderly. There are various caregiver training programmes nowadays which provide the foreign domestic workers with the necessary skills to provide the utmost care to the old folks at home.

The primary responsibilities of transfer maids include accompanying the elderly for walks, preparing specific meals based on the elderly's dietary needs, administering medication to the seniors as needed, and providing companionship. Further training can also assist them in gaining a better understanding of the needs of the elderly and give the family some peace of mind.

The Benefits of Hiring Transfer Maids Over Overseas Maids

Given the long application process, there is a need to wait approximately over ten weeks before new helpers can commence work for the family.

On the other hand, hiring a transfer maid means a shorter waiting time and lower costs since the helper is in Singapore and has been granted approval to seek out their new employer. Also, there is no further need to retrain them as their previous employer has already trained them. Today, many families opt to employ Singapore transfer maids instead due to their ease of accessibility and lower hiring costs.
Personal Care


Transfer maids receive training before working for their current employer to guarantee that they perform to their full potential. They are responsible for keeping a home organised, cooking, running errands, buying groceries, laundry and ironing, and keeping the house in order.

Assistance to Primary Caregiver

While caregivers must deliver basic caregiving skills to the elderly with healthcare needs, a transfer maid should provide additional support.
