Reviews from our customers
“ The caregiver is very patient and experienced in taking care of my dementia father. She also took pictures of my father’s activity under her care and also wrote a long list of care summary, e.g. what time she helped my father to bathe, where she brought him for a walk, noticed my father coughing, what time he drank water and many small details. I am very thankful to have such a wonderful caregiver to look after my father. Thank you Homage for introducing such an experienced and patient caregiver to my father.”

“I engaged Homage to look after my dementia mum at night while the family is away. I was just trying my luck to find a suitable caregiver as I have less than a week to find one. Without fail, Homage helped me to find 3 different caregivers for 3 nights. I was amazed at such efficient service within a short time frame. I highly recommend Homage if you need part time caregivers.”

“When I needed urgent assistance for hygiene care for my mum, Homage was able to respond to my request and within a matter of hours, I was given a confirmation that a carer had been found. From the profile given, I was glad someone with the right experience and skill sets was assigned to the task. True enough, the fine lady turned up on time and completed the task of giving my mum a thorough clean up. She’s friendly and generous in giving advice which was very helpful. Now I know I can turn to Homage again as and when I need help. Tried, tested and a happy customer!”
