April 28 is World Day for Safety and Health at Work and Workers' Memorial Day. Each year, this day provides us with an important opportunity to reflect on how to prevent occupational deaths, injuries, diseases and illnesses.

April is No Falls Month, and Right at Home Australia would like to share some valuable tips on how to keep yourselves and your loved ones safe and upright. Each year millions of people seek hospital treatment after a fall. The World Health Organization reports that approximately 30% of people over the age of 65 will fall every year. Some will die as a result of their fall injuries, and many more will experience disabilities that lead to a loss of independence.
While COVID-19 has rightly taken a front seat in the global fight against infectious diseases, there are many devastating diseases continuing to plague our communities and causing significant loss of life. One of those diseases is Tuberculosis (TB).
This last week we have all witnessed incredible scenes of devastation due to flood waters caused by an extreme rain event over Southeast Queensland and Northern New South Wales. Areas affected include Maryborough, Gympie, Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Northern Rivers (Byron Bay, Lismore, and Ballina) and now the rain is heading to Central NSW Coast and further south to Sydney. We all feel helpless and want to offer our support.
February is Heart Research Month. And with Valentine’s Day last week, we wish to draw attention to the heart health of all Australians but particularly that of Australia’s women.

It’s summer in Australia and we all know what that means. Sun, and lots of it. At this time of the year, Right at Home asks families to be vigilant when caring for their elderly loved ones or loved ones living with a disability.
It’s the beginning of another year, and for those of us with ageing loved ones or loved ones living with a disability, it can be a time when tough decisions need to be considered. Right at Home Australia, a premiere home care provider, is experienced in easing these conversations and paving the way for improving the quality of life and to maintain independence for your loved ones.
In these trying times, we want to help and support you and your career. If you are a school graduate, a university student, returning to work now that the kids have started school or you’re seeking something new and rewarding in your career, then Right at Home might be the right place for you.
The holiday season is a busy time for all. Whether you’re working or taking time off, there’s still an incredible number of domestic chores, gift buying, and family visits to plan.
