In-home Support Services

Our in-home support services can assist you to remain active in your community. We provide practical support through encouragement and, when required, assistance to maintain and develop independent living skills.

Domestic Assistance

We provide basic homecare support to help you, if you feel you need a hand keeping your home safe, clean and tidy. We can help with mopping floors, dusting, changing bed linen and laundry.

Delivered Meals

If you're an older resident, or a person with a disabilty, who finds it hard to cook and prepare food, we can provide you with a three-course meal. We deliver the meals to you, and each week our drivers bring the menus for the following seven days.

Personal Care

We can help you with personal hygiene if you need assistance to shower or bathe, dress and groom. Our qualified and trained staff can offer practical support and assistance, and are here to maintain your independence for as long as possible.

Respite Care

If you’re a primary carer for a senior or someone with a disability, we can provide valuable relief; giving you a break from the responsibilities of your role.

Depending on your care plan, we may be able to provide qualified care at home, or organise the support required for one of our recreational activities.

The way we allocate respite care does depend on available resources, and we always give priority to caregivers in most need.

Home Maintenance

Our home maintenance service provides minor household repairs such as changing light bulbs, replacing tap washers fixing  door hinges – jobs that do not require the skills of a qualified tradesman such as a licensed electrician or plumber.

Also, we may be able to help with modifications to your home that could make life easier for you, including:

  • Installation of grab rails
  • Hand held shower hose
  • Ramps.

Before we can install anything, your situation and requirements will be assessed by an Occupational Therapist.
