Making the Right Decision for Your Household

If you’re wondering if hiring a helper is the right decision for your household, join us for our one hour free chat that will demystify the helper topic for you.  The founder of Helpwise, Melanie Leung-Shea, will help you understand more about this unique living/working dynamic.

You’ll learn the basics of the Hong Kong helper scene, and we’ll address the 5 key questions and concerns that often come along with this big decision.

  • Understand the helper’s role: why they’re called “helpers”, and their role in Hong Kong society
  • Envision what it’s like to live with a helper: what having a helper means for your privacy, how it changes your household, safety issues to be aware of

What Our Clients Are Saying

When we moved to Hong Kong, we quickly saw that there weren’t many resources available for employers of domestic helpers. But Helpwise gave us caring and trustworthy advice based on experience, wisdom, and the desire to help all parties involved.
