Any good Indonesian maid agency to recommend to take care of elderly bed bound patient?
Sorry I don't have any experience with an agency for elderly to be able to recommend you something.

However, I am currently working on something that might be able to help you manage your helper when you get her. You can take a look at https://helpersmama.com/.

Would love to have your feedback on what you think. Thanks.

to all experts and owners,

is there such a rule where if the maid less drawn from her ex-employer is $600, i need to follow suit? i recently change a new maid and was surprised there is such ruling. She is an Indo btw.
The standard is minimum $600 which would be effective lately it seem.

My sister mentioned that when the maid returned last month (given 2 weeks emergency leave while on contract) and a new term in contract is $600 minimum.

Child First Aid

If you have children at home being cared for by helpers, ease your mind by letting them attend a Child First Aid course!

Smile My helper

My helper have been with me for the past 8 years. I do provide her a phone so that she can calls home. With helpers, we must always let them know our dos and don't. Cannot take for granted. Just be patience with your helper! I would recommend the agency that i use. https://ablebest.com.sg/ Give it a try bah no harm. They are really patient with good service.

I have chosen not to have a maid since my last one left. I see a lot of issues with having them - hear so many stories of them stealing etc. Just decided it’s easier without

currently have an indo maid.

Pros:

1) love kids alot. my youngest daughter tends to stick more to her.
2) can touch and eat pork. because she's Buddhism.
3) My money put everywhere she don't take..small change like a few dollars.
4) cooks well. not as good as me but there is always room for improvement.
5) very hardworking helper.

Cons:

1) she misses home alot. she got one daughter. tends to have a "once in a blue moon" cry and all.
2) she might forget about certain things i remind her.
3) her understanding of english still not up to standard yet.. she's with us for 3yrs already. i guess most indo maid are lidat.
4) she can be stubborn at times.. must talk in a nicer approach..den she get it.. hard way she can't.

My parents taught me, if you treat your maid well, she will treat you and your kids well also.

meawhile i'm still trying to convince her to stay as long as i can support her. because i'm getting too used of not doing household chores.
