Helper at home

With most families being dual-income-with-kids, outsourcing home cleaning and home economics to domestic helpers is almost a way of life for Singaporeans. Come in and discuss issues pertaining to maids and home management.

Helper at home

Postby anlynn » Wed Apr 11, 2012 9:36 am

Hi parents,

I am exploring options of getting a maid / getting a part time helper at home.

Anyone knows if there is such helper that is able to help in housework chores and help out a bit in child care like bathing / feeding your toddler?

I hv such a part time helper but i only ask her to help out with the kids when I really hv no choice. I also asked her to help only after she worked for me for a few mths.

I m looking for part-time cleaner. Can some1 recommend me a good 1 but not too expensive? The last 1 I engaged was thru an agency charging 7 hours for $50, but you cannot expect too much and getting different maid every time.

Pse help to recommend.

Every time you pay someone by the hour, both parties are usually unhappy.

The helper feels that you are trying to get too many things done and you feel that more things could be done.

Better to pay by projects if it is possible.
