The Eldercarer Foreign Domestic Worker (FDW) Scheme enables you to hire a pre-trained FDW who has undergone comprehensive training in eldercare. This ensures your FDW is equipped with the basic skills to care for your loved one.
The topics taught include:
Before arriving at your home: Your FDW will complete two days of classroom training
After arriving at your home: Your FDW will complete three hours of on-the-job training to ensure that the FDW can apply the knowledge learnt
The cost of training varies from $200 - $500, depending on the employment agency and type of trained helper required.
Eligible caregivers can tap on the Caregivers Training Grant (CTG) to offset up to $200 of the training cost.
You can contact the
participating employment agencies (EAs) for more details on the costs and hiring process. You can also find more information on the agencies listed above via MOM's Employment Agencies and Personnel Search.
If you are seeking financial assistance in training and/or hiring a FDW, you can consider the Foreign Domestic Worker (FDW) Levy Concession. This scheme enables you to pay a monthly FDW levy concession of just $60 instead of $265.
