How can temporary caregivers support you when your helper is away?
Many Singaporean families rely on domestic helpers for their elderly loved ones’ care. However, according to the Ministry of Manpower’s regulations, your domestic helper is entitled to one rest day per week and must have one rest day each month that cannot be compensated away.
During your helper’s rest days, overseas home leave, or when you are waiting for a new helper to arrive, juggling caregiving with work and family responsibilities can leave you exhausted.
Flexible and short-term care support can be an alternative to taking on caregiving responsibilities on your own. Whether it is for a few hours each day, or for a few weeks or months, our trained caregivers will look after your family member whenever you need extra help.

Top Questions About Temporary Caregivers
What is the shortest duration for a care visit by a temporary caregiver?
The duration of a Homage respite care visit starts from just one hour, depending on your family’s preferences and your loved one’s needs.
How long can I engage in temporary care?
Temporary care is meant to provide short-term caregiving respite, especially in cases where your loved one’s primary caregiver, such as a live-in domestic helper, is taking a rest day or on leave.
Whether your helper is away for weeks on home leave or taking their mandatory rest day on Sundays, you can engage our caregivers for extra help.
In fact, you can even engage in relief care for just an hour or two, while you run errands or take a short break from caregiving yourself.
What are Homage's care packages?
We have interim to longer-term respite care packages with varying care durations so that you and your loved one can find a care package which best fits your needs and preferences. Respite care packages can also help save up to 20% for multiple care sessions. Reach out to our Care Advisors at 6100 0055 for more details.
Are there subsidies for Homage's temporary care service?
Yes, you can apply for financial subsidy under the Home Caregiving Grant to defray the cost of temporary care arrangements at home. Learn more about the eligibility criteria and application process via the Agency for Integrated Care website.
Does Homage provide live-in caregivers?
Our caregivers currently provide 24-hour care service but not live-in caregiving.
For our 24-hour care service, two caregivers will be scheduled for the visits. Care will be split into 12-hour shifts to support you and your loved one round-the-clock each day.
Can caregivers help with housekeeping?

How quickly can I get a caregiver?
We aim to match a Care Pro to your requested visit within 2-3 days. For bookings made 1-2 days before the visit date, we will try our best to match a Care Pro.
I have 2 care recipients in my home. Can one Homage caregiver care for both?
To ensure every individual who engages our services receives undivided attention and care, each care recipient would be matched to a dedicated Homage caregiver who fits their needs and preference.
If there are 2 care recipients residing in the same home who needs care in the same period, 2 Homage caregivers would be present to care for each recipient respectively.

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.
