Long Term Care
Feel supported now and into the future.
Home care can allow for increased independence in a time when extra support is required, and this may be for varying amounts of time. When a health condition or injury becomes a long term and chronic issue, assistance can be organised that allows a person to remain at home rather than move to a residential facility or rely heavily on friends and family.
Health conditions that last more than a few months can significantly impact your ability to manage your activities of daily living, such as dressing, managing household tasks and creating meals, and can greatly reduce your quality of life.
These may include issues such as chronic health conditions like motor neurone disease, physical disabilities, mental health concerns, or severe injuries.
Why Is Home
Being able to remain at home is one of the most important factors for people dealing with long term conditions and injuries. Home care can facilitate this in times where assistance is required to maintain safety and comfort.
Home care means that day-to-day needs can be taken care of or done in a supported fashion. This allows for a form of independence outside of a healthcare facility and promotes a fulfilling way of life. It also means that family and friends can be rest assured that reliable and thorough care is provided.
