What is a Live-In Caregiver?

  • Our Live-In Caregivers provide one-to-one services in the form of home care for patients, the elderly, disabled, people with reduced mobility (such as those who are bedridden), to those who require long-term care, such as infants and young children.
  • Live-In Caregivers are professional nursing care staff (from the Philippines, Sri Lanka and India) who comes to Hong Kong under the Foreign Domestic Helper visa (the standard contract term is for two years).
  • Emotional and social aspects of the patient's daily living care (including feeding, showering, going to the toilet, changing of diaper, support, rehabilitation training, drug management and emergency handling).
  • They mainly care for patients with impaired mobility, such as dementia, stroke, Parkinson's disease, diabetes, cancer or those who require specialised care (such as nasogastric tube feeding, urinary cathether care, tracheostomy care, stoma care) and more.

Information on COVID-19 And Hiring of Overseas Nurses (Continuously Updated As Of May 5, 2020)

  • Employment Application:
    The Philippine government has extended the closure of the city (for the capital of Manila and epidemic-stricken areas) and most government departments have yet to officially resume work, therefore affecting hiring and application processes. In addition, departments in Hong Kong that process relevant foreign domestic worker application (such as the Immigration Department and Philippine Consulate) require appointments to be made, which will take longer than usual. As there will be an increase of applications in the short term, it is currently estimated that it will take about three and a half months or more for new hires from overseas to be processed, and more than two months for local employment. If you need to hire a Live-In Caregiver, it is recommended to apply as soon as possible. 

  • Health Training:
    After overseas caregivers’ arrival in Hong Kong, we will provide targeted health training: such as wearing of personal protective equipment, correct washing of hands, personal hygiene and information on the coronavirus.

  • Free Nursing Consultation:
    In view of the epidemic, we understand that there are many patients who require care but are worried that they may not find suitable care. We are able to provide free nursing consultation, and make the most suitable preparation for families.

  • Qualified Caregivers:
    Our overseas caregivers have been through relevant nursing training and have the necessary qualifications to provide you with safe and proper nursing care.
