A knowledgeable Service Advisor can work closely with you and your family to understand your needs and preferences and design a service plan that’s right for you. Thanks to our wide variety of services, if your needs or circumstances change, you have the peace of mind of knowing that we can provide you with the support you need.
Help at home
For all the chores needed to keep your home clean, neat and tidy, such as cleaning, dusting, vacuuming, mopping, dishwashing, laundry, ironing and organising.
Shopping for ingredients, preparing and cooking delicious, nutritious meals and help with eating if needed. We also can accommodate special dietary preferences and requirements.
Easily and safely get out and about with your helper driving and accompanying you. There’s no reason to be stuck at home or miss out on doing the things you love just because you don’t drive.
Social support & activities
Social and community activities can enhance your wellbeing. We can provide company and emotional support, as well as drive you to outings, events and social activities, or to visit family and friends.
We provide a range of programs, therapies and services to maximise your independence and enable you to remain active and healthy. They include passive and active exercise, diet, balance, flexibility, mobility, falls prevention, and pain management.
Allied health support
Access to specialised allied health and therapy services such as physiotherapy, podiatry, speech therapy and dietician to assist you to remain living independently and confidently in your home.
Assistive technology helps you do things on your own more easily, communicate better, and stay safe. Examples include personal alarms, enhanced telephones, movement-activated lights, medication dispensers and video conferencing.
Aids & equipment
Get equipment designed to keep you mobile and safe, such as walkers, wheelchairs, mobility scooters, shower chairs and continence aids.
Home maintenance & modifications
We can arrange for your home to be modified and maintained, whether it’s, installing handrails, shower rails, ramps, chair lifts, repairs, doing the gardening or changing a lightbulb.
Breaks for carers
If you’re being cared for by a family member, respite care allows them to take a break and recharge. Don’t wait until they’re totally exhausted or for a health crisis to hit.
Help with routine, personal tasks like getting in and out of bed, dressing and undressing, going to the toilet, bathing, showering and grooming.
Our nursing care can support you while you recover from surgery or an injury, provide wound care, medication management, dementia care, palliative and end of life care.
