KOTA KINABALU: Homage, a caregiving services platform, announced its most significant expansion in Malaysia yet with new footprints in cities across, Sabah and Sarawak, and Perak.
Through its Homage app, it will be enabling families and their loved ones in these areas to receive quality care at home.
By year end, it is also aiming to grow its pool to 11,000 caregivers, nurses, and therapists nationwide and to partner with more organisations and health institutions to decentralise the healthcare burden in Malaysia and pave the way for all Malaysians to access quality step-down healthcare at their fingertips.
“Growing concerns over healthcare accessibility and an overloaded healthcare system have seen demand rise across Malaysia for alternative, home-based care services that can safeguard care recipients, even more so with the rise in Omicron cases as of late.
“In tandem with the recent Series C fundraising round in September 2021 and marking its third year in Malaysia, Homage’s latest expansion to more cities in 2022 such as Perak, Sabah and Sarawak will look to bring home care to more Malaysians and ensure that people from all walks of life who need proper care – such as post-surgery patients, or those recovering from long-term injuries – can receive it in the comfort and safety of their own homes.”
Based on the care recipients’ needs, Homage develops a personalised care plan and uses a proprietary matching engine to pair the care recipients with the best-matched Care Professionals (a skilled pool of nurses, caregivers, and therapists) to provide care.
Families can receive real-time updates on their loved one’s care and manage bookings and reports via Homage’s mobile app, making it a flexible and efficient experience.
Homeage provides range of daily living activities services
Homage’s range of services includes Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) such as showering and toileting assistance, companionship, night care; nursing care such as wound and stoma care, as well as medical escort services to doctors’ appointments, and hospital visits.
Understanding that holistic change in the caregiving ecosystem requires a concerted effort from all stakeholders, Homage actively welcomes partnerships with organisations and healthcare institutions in the Klang Valley, Penang, Johor, Perak, Borneo and beyond to jointly elevate healthcare standards in the care continuum.
“The pandemic has shown us just how important it is to ensure that people can receive quality care where they feel safest and are most comfortable – their homes.
“Homage is committed to answering the call for more equalised access to good healthcare and our expansion to more Peninsular cities, as well as our larger footprint in East Malaysia, is just the first step.
“We know that it is a joint effort to create true ecosystem impact, which is why Homage is also eager to work with other like-minded organisations and institutions within the community to help more seniors and family members across Malaysia enjoy a better quality of life,” said PC Gan, Country Manager of Homage Malaysia.
