24 hour home care
Deciding whether to place your loved one in an aged care home – or whether to move into one yourself, as you age – can be a difficult decision to make. While most people prefer to stay in their own home where everything is familiar, it can be difficult to manage if you have complex care needs that require constant attention.
This is where 24 hour home care can help. Twenty-four hour care is when you or your loved one experiences around the clock care for a 24 hour period while living at home, through a team of nurses and care workers.
This allows you to stay at home in a familiar place and remain close to your local community. It also removes the emotional strain of moving to an aged care home. Your family can have peace of mind knowing you are safe and well cared for, while you enjoy quality of life.
The benefits of 24 hour home care are:
- having a personalised care plan that is tailored to your needs, interests and lifestyle;
- not being placed in an aged care home prematurely;
- carers can build relationships with families and support them with their caring responsibilities;
- consistency in caregivers so you feel comfortable with the people supporting you;
- a sense of calm and familiarity from staying at home – especially for those living with dementia;
- ensuring your medical and personal needs are met at night by familiar care workers;
- reducing the incidence of skin infections and urinary tract infections;
- minimise risk of falls for those who need assistance with moving around the home (e.g. getting out of bed in the morning)
