Why we need part-time caregivers in Singapore

Families may need temporary care support post-hospital discharge, when the primary caregiver is busy with other commitments, or are simply need a break. However, while there are many long-term care facilities such as nursing homes and daycare centres in Singapore, families sometimes struggle to find suitable short-term care options. 

Without proper care support at home after a discharge, many face the risk of hospital re-admission, especially for seniors and those who live alone. In fact, almost 1 in 5 seniors discharged from hospitals are readmitted within a month. Making care arrangements for the transition from hospital to home takes time, and a family member often takes on the role of the primary caregiver in the interim. Without proper caregiving background, training and knowledge, they may not be able to deliver the best care and can easily be overwhelmed by this additional role.
