The Need for Private Nurse and Nursing Agency
Individuals with chronic conditions or are recovering from surgery may need routine nursing care. However, the commute and long wait times at hospitals can be costly, time-consuming and inconvenient.
Besides making the experience an unpleasant one, the cost and hassle can lead to people putting off their appointments and not receive the care they need, especially for those who live alone or have mobility concerns. This may lead to health complications and hospital re-admissions, which is both not ideal for the care recipient and adds further stress to our healthcare infrastructure.
Sometimes, we may also require urgent nursing care due to unforeseen circumstances, such as the displacement of a nasogastric tube (NG tube). In these situations, speed is key. Having to travel and wait in line may not be the best option.
Thankfully, with private nursing care, you can get the care you need delivered to your doorstep within hours. No need to queue or travel.

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.
