"I strongly suggest you to stop hiring this maid", a netizen who witnessed the incident wrote

SINGAPORE: A maid who was supposed to bring an elderly man out for a wheelchair stroll seemed to have just left him aside while she played with her phone.

In an anonymous post to a Facebook page, a netizen who lived in the same HDB block shared a photo. The man wrote that the incident happened at Block 421 in Hougang. He wrote: “I’m new in Singapore, I don’t know is this common or is this the SOP of bringing elderly down for a walk or fresh air here. I don’t know whose maid is this, I don’t know whose elderly is this”.

He continued: “But this is definitely not the first time I’m seeing this. It hurts me if this is happening to my elderly”. He said that the maid would bring the elderly man to the same spot and she would do the same thing as well. Same scenery the uncle is seeing, the bicycles. If this is your elderly, this is your maid, I strongly suggest you to stop hiring this maid”, the man wrote.
The post garnered over  2,500 reactions and more than 1,200 comments on social media.
Most netizens were on the side of the maid. Here’s what others who commented on the post said:

Earlier this year, another foreign domestic helper asked other employers to help hire her so she did not have to continue working for her current employers. In a post to a support group for domestic helpers and employers alike, the 32-year-old maid said she wanted to transfer to another employer as she worked very hard. She wrote that she worked at her employer’s condominium apartment. Though it is unclear how big the unit was, the maid wrote that one of the floors had a garden she had to tend to.

She added that during the initial interview with her employers, they said that her job scope would only require taking care of a 12-year-old and a 14-year-old. However, she also said that her employers now have sent her to work in a different building, a “big condo”, where not only did she have to take care of the two children, but she also had to take care of her employer’s elderly parents.
