In the majority of cases, the initial enquiry regarding in-home care comes from a family member rather than the person themselves. Older Australians are proud and self-reliant. Asking for help is something that they do not take lightly. They don’t want to be a burden, or to put someone out. Most often the decision to seek out a care provider is driven by an event such as a fall, sudden illness, an adverse diagnosis, or the simple realisation by the family that a loved one needs help.

People that need help can come from a broad range of circumstances:

  • Adult individuals who have become paraplegic or quadriplegic
  • Adult individuals who suffer from Dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Adult individuals who suffer from disease scenarios such as MS or MD.
  • Adults who need assistance after a surgery, hospital stay, or during rehabilitation
  • Clients who need palliative supportive care
  • Older People who may need a helping hand with homemaking assistance
  • Older People who may need errand or chore service assistance
  • Older People who may need skilled nursing care
  • Older People who need assistance with medication management
  • Older People who need assistance with personal care needs such as bathing
  • Older People who need companionship or safety supervision
  • Spouses or family members who need respite from acting as a primary carer.
