Your Questions Answered

Why QDM?

It’s difficult to watch loved ones struggle. Moreso, it’s difficult to watch them struggle alone. Through QDM, relatives and friends are able to care for the elderly, chronically-ill or disabled person in their life and receive compensation. As opposed to hiring caregivers from outside the home, QDM makes it possible for clients to choose their caregiver directly, allowing them comfort with someone they know and trust. 

At QDM, we’re always there for our clients and caregivers. In business since 2017, we will always diligently answer questions and address any concerns you have about the service, supporting you every step of the way.

Client grooming and dressing, laundry, housekeeping, shopping, meal preparation, medication management, and appointment scheduling are tasks typically performed by the caregiver.
