English Nursing Care (ENC), a total solution in home nursing and elderly care, expands its service offerings with the introduction of a brand-new service called ‘Managed Maid.’
The service was developed with the objective of teaching domestic help the specialised skills of looking after the elderly and those that need special care. The ‘Managed Maid’ service would develop the skills of domestic help with expert training and management, to better serve those in need, with the comfort of a familiar face. This innovative service is a unique combination of technical training together with follow up assessments and support in the customers own home.
Ensuring that your elderly loved ones are looked after and cared for can be a challenge, English Nursing’s ‘Managed Maid’ service entails an operational training program that involves a team from English Nursing Care coming to your home and carrying out a detailed understanding of the situation in the care space, thereafter they would create a bespoke training program for your domestic help.
The training program will be delivered and monitored by a qualified nurse taking into account your needs. The bespoke training program will allow the patient’s needs to be met in their own home – whether for long-term care or rehabilitation after a hospital stay.
Speaking of this innovative service, English Nursing Care General Manager Ivanka Fonseka said: “We are always looking at ways to improve the lives of the elderly and that is why we do understand that sometimes when you get used to someone in your home, it is difficult to adjust to a new person being brought in.
“This service allows you to provide quality eldercare to a patient at home whilst minimising disruption to their existing routine. Our service of up-skilling a domestic helper to provide good quality eldercare provides real support to the family. Our expert staff always remain available when required.”

Attesting the efficiency of Managed Maid Eldercare, a family member of one of English Nursing’s existing patients stated, “We needed more specialised care than our home help could provide after my father returned from hospital... His pressure sores have now cleared due to the supervision of English Nursing Care. The spot checks and a regular report from English Nursing Care keeps me updated on the care that my father is receiving - granting me a great peace of mind.”
