Hello,  my mother is 73 years old and lives by herself. She has health conditions but doesn't want to go to the hospital and doesn't want anyone living with her such as a housekeeper or family member. I have finally convinced her that  a caregiver (non-live in) is what she needs.  Now, I just have the huge task of finding a reputable, honest and affordable one. I live in the US and mother lives in Talisay City. She is a Balikbayan and has now lived in the Philippines in retirement for 15 years.  I want to make sure she is well-taken care of.  Can anyone please help me a company, a person?  I would really appreciate it.  Thank you.

I thought family looked after their elderly parents, that the thing I like about Filipino culture, sure here most Australians put them into aged care places, sure I believe the government help with the cost, I hear many sad stories here very rarely family come and visit there parents, sure when they die, they turn up for what they can get, that's very sad.

you must have other family members can look after your mother. 

Someone I know hes Filipino him and his Australian girlfriend planning to open an aged care place in Cebu similar to the same as the one here in Australia, they are hoping to get many Australians to live in Cebu the main reason the climate will be better for the older ones, and talking with him they can get the money direct from centrelink, which is our socail security is called, his girlfriend works for an aged care place here in Australia.

This man always looking for businesses opportunities, and looking for investors from overseas, thankfully he never asked me for money, hes a friend of my wife.

Funny thing he said to me he going to marry this aussie girl, he thinks marry her he become an aussie citizen and his wife become a filipino citizen, I tried to tell him it don't work like that , he dont listen, he even told me an american investor pulled out, so not all foreigners are stupid.

Not 100% what you are looking for but related nonetheless....

Mabuhaii Nursing Home is owned by German man.  Started in Illoilo..  but they (meaning the Mestiso daughter (Sara) of the German man Peter) just opened one in Cebu City area.  I think it's a pretty reputable place, and they may be able to refer a nurse for home care.  I met Sara in Visayan class (she spoke Illongo and German)..  and her father Peter was good friend of Jurgen (now deceased) at Borussia restaurant.

Been there done that - after 30 years w/ MIL - had tp put her in home - either that or have wife stop working to prevent her burning down our house (2 times - luckily we were home). Her sister said NFW even though she didn't work and was home all day.

The family taking care of elders only works if multi-generational house - (3 or 4 gens ) and many non-workers

While my mother comes from a large family with many siblings, unfortunately, I don't have family members who even visit her unless they want money.  My cousins are clingy to their parents and they all either live in the same home of their parents or in the same baranggay. It's almost as if they can't be away for more that midday? So if your friend has caregiving services now or knows of one who can do in home visits, please provide info, and I will contact and discuss details. Thank you.,
