Quote “This career was occurred to patch the leak in society”
Must have skills: 1. Nursing knowledge 2. Tolerance 3. Service like a family member
Thailand is entering the full elderly society. According to statistics in 2017, the number of people aged 60 and over is up to 11 million. Or 1 in 5 of the total population. The problem is that the society that has only old people and when they get sick who will take care or who will take them to the hospital. The children are all busy and must work hard to survive.
'Taking people to the doctor Jobs occurred in the online world and quietly popular (a lot of demands).
What is taking people to the hospital job is?
Back 2 years ago, Khun Tongkorn Suksawatdi Na Ayuttaya,
professional nurses who have free time from maternity leave. She doesn’t want to just do nothing, so she was looking for a part time job. And with the growth of the online world that everyone can access like Facebook as a sale channel. So, she decided to open page name “รับจ้างพาไปหาหมอ ไปทำบุญ ไปเป็นเพื่อน by ทองกร” By brought the nursing skills with the knowledge of public relations that has taught the university. Mixed well to become a strength.
Most of the users are children who need help to bring their elderly parents to see the doctor at the hospital or clinic.
Including additional services like taking to other businesses or go to the temple.
"I used to have a woman from Chiang Mai who came alone for surgery in Bangkok. Hired me to be friends from the moment that she consulted with the doctor until. Took care after surgery. Because she has no relatives in Bangkok.
It seems like doing this job is easy. Just to see each other and then go to the doctor. But the real work is difficult and demanding high sensitivity.
Because to allow people who have never met before taking you to many places, especially with the elderly vigilant. So, strangers need to build trust.
In the early day that page just opened, Got the first job was taken several months. Some people contacted but when the date came the appointment was canceled because the client was not sure that it is real service or scam. I had to build trust with our customers in different ways. When I first meet or talk to a customer, I must show that I am sincere person. I show my identity card or my professional card to confirm that I am not a robber. I am really a nurse and I can take care of them.
In addition to confirm the identity, the important thing is to help customers trust faster. That is to express the sincerity through dialogue.
Start talk to the client and ask about the symptoms? Has he ever been treated? Asking for details with a generous mind and service mind "
This job is not easy even for professional nurses. Patients come in many forms. Some of them are stubborn and some are very rude to me.
We need to take care of them like we care for our parents. Sometimes the psychology is used in the conversation. To make them feel that we are like their children, their family. We just like their relatives who take them to the doctor and spend all day together.
Start from pick up from home then go to the hospital, get a queue, get the medicine, take to a restroom, go eat until sit in the examination room. We need to translate medical language that is difficult to be able to understand. Some patients hate the hospital and do not know what to do, do not dare to talk so we need to help them talking to the doctor.
Besides using the technology as a main channel for public relations. Tongkorn is also used to enhance after-sales service. To talk to the customer not just a date, time, place for an appointment but also report the results of the hospital visit, how to take the pill and reminder the next appointment. Including discussion of the symptoms of each patient so that their children can use this information to take care of their parents later.
The strength of Tongkorn is recording all client’s information which is not different from the hospital staff. To be monitored patients and this way, it shows the attention. This cause the customers want to come back to use the service next time.
From word of mouth and the reviews on Facebook page. Currently, there are customer for this service nearly ten per week. So Tongkorn cannot do not this alone. Now she has a team of 4-5 who are also have nursing degree.
“This career was occurred to fill the society gap” Tongkorn thought.
One thing that Tongkorn wants to say is no one wants their parents to stay in the nursing home. Children want to take care of their parents themselves, but they don’t have time. Especially when it comes to doctor appointing. A 'mercenary to doctor' appointment, it is one of the assistants to tightening the relationship with the family.
"If you're not busy, just let us do it for you and everyone will be able to spend time together the same.
Anyways, every parent wants a child to be the caregiver most - Tongkorn confirmed.
The advantage of this profession is having a chance to getting out and be able to do time allocation and time management ourselves. The income is at the level that care for ourselves and the family comfortably.
For the income, Tongkorn divides into parts. One part she spends for the family. Another piece will be saved on a fixed deposit account. But if she has more time, she also wants to learn about mutual fund.
You will not get rich by doing this. As said, this service must be done with service mind. When taking care of the sick person, it’s hard. I need to dedicate both time and body and cannot make a mistake. Because they are like my relatives. "
