Any job recommendations for elderly who doesnt know english, or have any form of educational qualification?

My parents are nearing 65 and his CPF is a meagre SGD 10,000. I am currently the only son and I worry i can't really handle the entire family's expenses. Any job recommendations for my parents so that they can help contribute to the family expenses as well?

Can try wood working if your dad is more of a hands on man like mine. For the mom, can go for selling home made goods usually food, crafts and so on. Not sure about actual jobs though.

They could consider being a cashier or working at Macdonald's, who are known to hire the elderly in their workforce.

Can consider being a nanny especially if your relatives are looking for one for their newborn kid or you can ask if they have friends who are looking for one. Or try looking for simple stock taking duties in mini grocery stores around your neighbourhood if there are.
