What is a Live-In Caregiver?

  • A Live-In Caregiver takes care of an elderly or sick client in his or her home. *The Live-In Caregiver is a personal help, health aide, and companion for a patient. 
  • Our Caregivers can take care of Dementia patients, Stroke Patients, Cancer patients, and patients with other medical conditions.
  • Duties mainly focus on Activities of Daily Living (hygiene, feeding, mobilisation, exercise), and their patient’s emotional and social well-being.
  • Live-In Caregivers also support the patients with their specific household tasks, but they are unable to do major chores for other members of the family.

Our Caregivers obtained their diplomas and certificates overseas and were interviewed by our nurse recruiters before they were selected into the Active Global Talent Pool. Only Caregivers with the right nursing skills and attitude make the cut.

Active Global Hong Kong has a fully-equipped Caregiving Training Room, where all caregivers are re-trained to local standards and to their specific patient’s condition before they start working. We have dedicated Nurse-Trainers to provide training and support to our Caregivers deployed in Hong Kong.
