Why we often skip medical appointments and treatments
Given the cost, commute, time spent and discomfort of a doctor’s visit, many of us are often tempted to go against advice and skip medical appointments, be it for chronic disease management follow-ups or preventive health screening.
For seniors and those with mobility constraints, travelling to and fro hospitals or clinics and home can be difficult. Long wait times often make a simple follow-up consultation last an entire day.
In many cases, a family caregiver is the one who accompanies the care recipient to the hospital or clinic. However, they may not always be available, due to time constraints or strained family relationships.
For seniors whose primary caregiver are their spouses, additional care support may be required due to their own health conditions and physical constraints, especially if the care recipient needs to be manually transferred from their bed to a wheelchair and then to the vehicle.
Missing medical appointments and treatments can cause health complications
However, not going for follow-up consultations, medical appointments, treatment and health screening can lead to further health complications. Often, patients who skip these appointments often end up back in the hospital with more serious and more costly health concerns.
Even those who do follow through with appointments may end up discarding the medication, consume the wrong dosage or mix them up, especially if there are many different medications to take. This can be dangerous due to potentially harmful drug interaction.
Families use us for:
- Doctor's & Hospital Appointments
- Visits to Daycare Centres
- Important Functions
Having a trained medical escort makes a difference
To ensure that care recipients follow through with their medical appointments, it can be helpful to have a trained professional step in and support.
With a steadily greying population in Singapore, the need for medical escorts is on the rise. They play a pivotal role in ensuring individuals and seniors follow through with their appointments and medication.
From accompanying them to and fro home, medical appointments, treatment facilities and/or important functions, medical escorts also take care of everything in between – from toileting and personal care to accurately relaying doctor’s advise and medication collection. A trained medical escort will keep your loved one safe and sound every step of the way.
Have peace of mind when you engage a medical escort to accompany your loved one for their medical appointment and treatment, and help them enjoy an improved quality of life free from health complications.

What our customers say
Right from the start from signing up for an account, to making a booking on the app, to the confirmation of a Care Asst and to the whole visit concluding, its all a seamless and worry free process. Loved this service and would recommend it to anyone who requires the extra pair of hands and legs
Have been using this for a year to help my grandfather who frequently gets aspiration pneumonia and has difficulty leaving the house. The app is so easy to use, and the cherry on top is the wonderful service behind the app. Had some difficulty finding a doctor recently and Hakim called me back personally twice to ensure a doctor was found. Thank you so much, cannot recommend this app more.
Very responsive app, with options to chat with caregiver, review reports and contact support team for assistance.
My mum’s helper was hospitalised suddenly and I needed urgent help to take care of my mum who has advanced dementia. Homage was able able to find caregivers for my mum within a very short notice. The caregivers possessed the skill sets that I had requested and were of great help to me in my time of need. Thank you Homage!
Homage CP render their professional service to my dad who is a dialysis patient. CP assigned to wheel my dad to & fro from Dialysis Center within 300m walking distance. They are capable to load & unload my dad from wheelchair independently. They are friendly too. I'm looking forward to their next visit.
Had a good experience with Homage's teleconsultation. The doctor is qualified, friendly and guided me on examination. She also explained my symptoms to me in detail, which is useful. The report provided has detailed information, and medicine was delivered to me on the same day even though my appointment was in the evening.
Response from Homage is fast. And the physiotherapist assigned is professional in assessing and guiding my mom in her session.
