    "A typical go-to move in the care of elderly parents has been to contract live-in maids to take care of them throughout the week. However, with reports that other countries like Indonesia have begun the process of stopping the export of live-in domestic helpers, we might see a trend rising where hiring foreign domestic helpers will no longer be viable. Furthermore, the uncomfortable home-professional relationship between maids and employers have been known to lead to disaster because the line between personal and professional is often blurred when the maid both lives and works in the house."
