Hi guys, please don't hate me on this but I'm guessing since this is a forum and this is the off-topic thread, that such a question is allowed to be posted on here.
My mum is getting older and she is not as able as she was before. I am thinking of employing a maid to help her with the household chores. But I have never had a maid before and I have no idea what to do or how to go about doing it.
I'm thinking some of us here may have had experience getting a maid and the costs involved. So before I go to an agency and get done in by all the agent talk and all, maybe I could get some insights so I don't get cheated by all the talk.
So, can anyone give me any information on what costs I need to pay and what procedures I need to go through in procuring the employment of a domestic helper?
I need to know the initial costs and monthly costs if possible, from the experience of members here who have or had maids. I also need to ask, levy is monthly right? How about the insurance? Is it monthly too?
T.I.A guys and gals. Mods, I hope you don't mind me posting here. Really could use the help if anyone offers. But if it really is off-topic, I'll remove it.
