Hire professional caregivers to improve holistic wellness and recovery
In Malaysia, family members tend to be the one taking up the role of the primary caregiver when a loved one is diagnosed with a health condition. While we may initially feel that we are able to cope by ourselves, the lack of proper caregiving skills, knowledge and support may compromise care quality and lead to caregiver stress and burnout.
Whether you need long-term care to manage chronic or advanced conditions or simply require temporary support while you take a break from caregiving for self-care, caregivers can help.
Caregivers can also support with post-surgery care. Those who live alone or are unaware of proper care techniques often end up back in the hospital after being discharged. Professional caregivers can step in to support with activities of daily living and ensure that care continues beyond the acute care setting, ensuring full recovery and reducing hospital re-admissions.
How can professional caregivers help?
Assist with the activities of daily living (ADLs) – eating, bathing, getting dressed, toileting, transferring, and continence.
Befriend and engage through conversations, interactive activities and outdoor trips.
Care provided through the night to assist with toileting or nursing needs, prevent wandering and reduce fall-risk.
Accompany and facilitate transport to-and-fro between home and medical appointments, scans and treatment visits.
Vital Signs Monitoring
Keep track of your loved one’s health as our Care Pros help to record temperature, pulse and/or blood pressure readings.
Get transparent real-time updates on how your loved one is doing while you are away for peace of mind.
Improving quality of life with professional caregivers
Having an additional pair of helping hands can relieve the pressure off family caregivers, whether temporarily or in the long-run.
Equipped with the relevant skills and knowledge, professional caregivers can share the load and guide you along your caregiving journey, ensuring that your loved one receives the care they deserve. Having a trained professional around can also help first-time caregivers learn the ropes of caregiving.
Furthermore, it is important to have a caregiver who can converse in the language or dialect that the care recipient is most comfortable with. This prevents miscommunication in care needs and allows for meaningful conversations to flow, which is key in promoting mental and emotional wellbeing.
Besides caring for the care recipient, a secondary role of professional caregivers is to provide emotional support and lend a listening ear to families. Family caregivers, especially sole caregivers, often find it comforting to share their journey with someone who understands how tough caregiving can get.

What our customers sayView all reviews
The team has been sublime to work with albeit having to temporarily halt engaging them for care services due to the pandemic situation now in Malaysia. All teething issues in the initial phase of engagement were swiftly addressed and satisfactorily so. Special shoutout to Shirley from Homage who has been responding promptly to all my queries and requests (and went far and beyond my expectations with her actions in all counts).
My father had a fall recently and sustained a hip fracture. Living overseas and not being able to travel back home to assist with recovery was very worrying. A friend recommended Homage to help with his nursing care. They are prompt in replying to messages. The care provided was excellent and highly professional. We have been very pleased with the service. There are times when we had to change the appointment time and they obliged and looked into our needs.
Our experience has been very positive. So far, we have used their Care Pros perhaps 10 times (for checking in on mum) and she has been nothing short of kind and supportive. The coordinator Bel has also been a great help since day one. I find the price to be reasonable. Love the reporting feature on their app. You could see what has been done during the visit. It’s worth trying out.
My 85-year-old mother, who underwent post-ventral incisional hernia surgery in January 2019 had CPs from Homage, all professionally trained, from leading Malaysian hospitals. The CPs nursed my mother with diligence, and compassion; providing invaluable tips on elderly caregiving to family members. My gratitude and appreciation to Team Homage.
I had positive experiences with Homage so far. They are flexible, affordable, and professional. The coordinator from Homage has been very helpful and accommodating to my request since day one. Caregivers assigned to take care of my grandmother are punctual, professionally trained and attentive. Hope they will continue to serve well.
Homage has helped us a lot in assisting the recovery of our beloved father. They provide us with a comprehensive explanation regarding the physiotherapy program. The therapist they sent is highly qualified, courteous, passionate, and gave outstanding service. And above all, the charges are fair and affordable.
Thank you Homage for your assistance after my mom was discharged from the hospital due to dengue fever. Mom regained her confidence to take her first shower after discharge with the help of Homage's caregiver, something my domestic helper will not be able to do. Also to guide my domestic helper to handle her in a more hygienic way. My maid learned the proper method and able to give better care to mom now. Highly recommend it to people who looking for professional care services to manage family members who need help.
It's really hassle-free when u can have the COVID-19 swab test without leaving ur home. The response is really fast, the app is efficient. Thank you for your services.
I want to thank Homage for their excellent service especially Ms. Ginger for her brilliant communication and customer service and for making the necessary arrangements. She does a good follow-up before and after the physio, also accurate feed-back. We appreciate Ms. Shu for her excellent physio service which made my mother gain confidence that she can walk again. Ms. Shu is very patient, hard-working, and committed to seeing my mum will be completely restored and healed. Thank you.
