Aged Care Home Support Services
Right at Home is about providing care services at home for older Australians. Our carefully selected and tained care staff can provide a range of services including companionship, personal care and skilled nursing. In many cases older Australians require assistance with Activities of daily living (ADLs). This is a term used to refer to daily self care activities within the home.
At Right at Home we defined ADLs as follows:
- Bathing and showering (washing the body)
- Meal preparation, assistance with dietary planning and dining
- Functional mobility (moving from one place to another while performing activities)
- Personal hygiene and grooming (including brushing/combing/styling hair)
- Toilet hygiene
Socialising and Relationships
While physical activity is needed to maintain a healthy lifestyle, social activities play an important part also. Everyone, no matter his or her age, needs some type of social life. Socialisation for the elderly is just as important as it is for the younger generation. When seniors socialise, they enrich their lives. There are many benefits for older Australians that come from maintaining social relationships.
When the elderly are living away from family, they still need friends and companions. Having someone to talk with, share a meal with, and having outside interests helps seniors have happier and healthier lives. It helps them feel loved, supported, and needed. The connections to people and activities give seniors a purpose and something to look forward to. It keeps them from feeling isolated and alone. Social activities help the elderly stay mentally sharp and ‘connected’.
Activities including games, walking, volunteering, reading, and even talking with others are necessary for everyone including the elderly. As we age, the importance of being socially active is more important than ever. Feeling needed and productive helps seniors lead happier lives. It helps their emotional well-being.
We support families dealing with a range of conditions incuding Parkinson's, Dementia and Alzheimer's, with all the difficult consequences of living with these conditions. Your family is not alone - we can help - call us. Read More
