Southcare's home care services support frail aged adults and younger people with disabilities in the Perth south area to remain living as independently as possible in their home.
A team of trained staff and volunteers are able to help in practical ways with the everyday personal, domestic and social activities with which our customers may need assistance.
Southcare has embraced the wellness concept in the delivery of our services. The concept has seen dramatic improvements in older people's health and wellbeing, resulting in lower levels of service provision, which in turn allows more people to continue living independently in their own home.
The concept sees ageing as a process of adaptation in which older people are actively involved in service planning & provision to adjust to the balance of gains & losses that come with ageing.
Some of the home care services we regularly assist with are:
- Domestic assistance
- Gardening and minor home maintenance
- Information and support
- Personal care
- Respite for carers
- Transport - for shopping, banking, medical and paramedical appointments.
