Avantika had delivered her baby almost a year ago. Her mother came from their hometown and stayed with her for a few months. This made it easy for Avantika to resume her job on the completion of her maternity leave. But her mother couldn’t have stayed with her forever, and she left for her hometown after a few months.
Avantika was an employee at IT Park with a multinational company and the nature of her job was quite demanding. If she wouldn’t resume her job, she would have to resign from the company which was not an option with her. Putting the baby in a daycare or crèche was also not possible for her as her job timings were from 12 PM to 9 PM, and no crèche would operate till 9.
Avantika was quite stressed as it was becoming difficult to manage her personal and professional life. There was no one who could take care of her child in her absence. Even her in-laws stayed in another city, so she was all alone with her husband and baby.
While discussing her plight with a colleague, she got to know about YouCare. YouCare is known for providing caregivers to working couples who have long and demanding work schedules and require affordable but professional caregivers to look after their children or elderly parents at home. She explored and researched more about YouCare and got all positive reviews and stories. Finally, she took a sigh of relief and connected with YouCare’s team.
Once the initial due diligence was over from their end which included an in-person interview and a WhatsApp call with the caregiver, the very next day, a caregiver was sent to Avantika’s home. To her surprise, the baby started mixing up with the caregiver and felt comfortable with her, thanks to her training and the company`s constant monitoring. It is rightly said that babies can identify the touch of love. The caregiver was a lady in her late 30s who appeared calm, composed, and very affectionate. The way she handled Avantika’s child impressed her and all her worries were gone. She felt that her baby was in safe hands now and she could concentrate on her job.
It has been almost 2 years and the caregiver still works with them. She stays for the entire day with Avantika’s daughter and feeds her when she is back from the playschool while preparing breakfast for her and washing and tidying up her clothes. She helps the baby with basic learning and plays with her too. She puts her for a nap in the afternoon and tells the stories that keep the baby happy and entertained. Sometimes, she even takes the baby to the park in the evening. Apart from taking care of the baby, the caregiver has also imbibed discipline, good habits, ethics, and a sense of independence in Avantika’s daughter.
Many more such stories happen every day at YouCare. At YouCare, working couples can now entrust looking after their children to capable and compassionate caregivers while spending time with them to create precious memories for a lifetime.
