What home-care can offer your loved one
Home care is always preferable to more invasive options whenever possible, but you might be wondering what exactly home-care can offer your loved one. It’s vital to consider this before delving into our services, as understanding the benefits of our home care packages will help you decide whether they’re the correct fit.
Of course, our case managers personalise every package to suit individual needs during an initial consultation, but some benefits our existing patients already enjoy include –
- High-quality care at affordable prices
- Care from the comfort of a familiar home setting
- Encouragement to get involved in the local community
- Reduced isolation due to social benefits
- Ongoing behaviour support
- Safe and expert care provided by a highly experienced Calamvale team
- Safe use of medication
- Help with general personal care tasks including food preparation and washing
- The ability to maintain financial assets such as home and belongings
- Proximity to friends and family
- Freedom of lifestyle outside of care visits
- The comfort of an ongoing and friendly care team
We pride ourselves on going above and beyond to help your loved one enjoy their lifestyle for as long as possible. Our palliative care services can even help them to maintain some level of freedom at home during a stage where residential care can seem inevitable. And, we do it all at a price you can afford, while also ensuring your loved one’s assets remain safe for many years to come.
What services do we offer at Home Caring Calamvale?
Once you know why our elderly care Calamvale is the best option, it’s time to consider which of our services is right for you. As mentioned, we can help with this during a free consultation where we’ll take the time to learn about your loved one’s unique circumstances, but the general packages we offer include –
- Domiciliary care
- Dementia care
- Disability care
- Palliative care
Domiciliary care Calamvale
Domiciliary care refers to any in-home care package and is now a preferred choice for many Queensland and Calamvale residents. As well as allowing your loved one to stay in the comfort of their homes, domiciliary care packages are a more affordable option than the 24/7 elderly care offered in aged facilities. That makes this an attractive choice from every angle.
Our qualified team attend every single personal care Calamvale case with compassion, passion, and proper training to assist your loved one in a variety of needs including –
- Assistance with personal grooming
- Meal preparation and feeding
- Fingernail and foot care
- Assistance to any appointments
- Medication management
- Overnight stays
- And much more
Our focus is on providing consistent, quality domiciliary private care that always puts our patient’s happiness first. That, in turn, should see your loved one keeping their independence for a lot longer.
Dementia care Calamvale
Spotting the signs of dementia in a loved one is always devastating, yet this crippling condition is only becoming more prevalent as lifespans increase. For many families, the onset of dementia can seem like an inevitable path towards continual care in an elderly facility, but that needn’t be the case.
Our Home Caring team have extensive experience in dealing with the intricacies of dementia. They can therefore ensure your loved one stays at home even once symptoms arise. Unlike our traditional in-home support packages, our dementia care efforts include specialised care provided by individuals trained in this condition.
In cases like these, some level of care is vital to help an individual maintain their quality of life with support for basic tasks like personal grooming and food preparation. On-going in-home dementia care can also prevent your loved one from becoming a danger to themselves or others through the use of coping mechanisms and memory tasks to slow the progression of memory loss.
Dementia care is a specialised service at an incredibly difficult stage, but our team has what it takes to help everyone through. As well as our care package itself, we understand the importance of emotional support at times like these. That’s why we’re even able to offer dementia respite care that can provide you with a much-needed break when things get on top of you. Don’t let dementia get you or your loved one down; we’re on hand to help.
Disability care Calamvale
As a registered NDIS provider, our home care packages also apply for adults living with disabilities. We have extensive experience in caring for individuals with a range of disabilities including –
- Neurological conditions
- Intermittent conditions
- Sudden on-set conditions
- Respiratory conditions
- Cardiac conditions
- Progressive conditions
Thanks to this experience, we understand that the demand for every disability varies a great deal, and we’re able to tailor our packages around that. No matter the nature of a disability, then, our home care workers have what it takes to help your loved one live life to the fullest at all times. While we tailor each package to individual needs, standard care services included within our disability packages include –
- Preservation of independence
- Help with social functions
- Assistance with domestic activities, including shopping
- Ongoing medication management
- Accompaniment to appointments
- And more
Even if you don’t think these basics will cover your loved one’s needs, one of our coordination home care Calamvale caseworkers will develop a one-on-one plan guaranteed to suit. What’s more, we’ll be on hand at all times to offer NDIS support that ensures you can access the funding you need to afford the care necessary.
Palliative care Calamvale
Palliative care is perhaps the hardest to consider, yet it’s also the most important care your loved one is liable to receive. Applicable in cases of terminal illness, palliative care concerns every aspect of end-of-life cases, and can be either a long-term or short-term undertaking.
The benefits of in-home palliative care speak for themselves, as every family hopes that their loved ones can remain at home during this difficult time. Care packages like these can go a long way towards reducing stress and helping to maintain a comfortable lifestyle for as long as possible. What’s more, palliative care can be a tremendous emotional support for you and the rest of the family during this incredibly challenging time.
The main tasks our Home Caring team can offer you during this palliative period of care include –
- Provision of medications for ongoing quality of life
- Companionship and emotional support
- Assistance in making difficult decisions
- Pain management
- Help to move around the home
- Light housekeeping
- Meal preparation
- Pet care
- General errands
In short; our team will take care of anything that could disturb you or your loved one, as well as guaranteeing that everyone remains as comfortable as possible. Our carers are also on-hand to offer advice about what happens after your palliative care comes to an end. That can make this otherwise tricky journey more comfortable from start to finish.
In everything we do, we promise to put the comfort and dignity of your loved one first to guarantee quality of life until the end.
The relief of respite care Calamvale
As you may be able to guess, we understand that your emotional needs can be just as crucial as the physical requirements of your loved one. Maintaining care for a loved one can be both emotionally and physically tiring, even when you have help on-hand. That’s why we also offer respite care in Calamvale and surrounding Queensland areas.
Whether you’re a sole or part-time carer, respite care provides you with a chance to take a break, go on holiday, and generally recharge your batteries. This, in turn, can help you to be the best carer possible moving forward.
Our live-in respite care packages mean that allowances like these needn’t even overwhelm your loved one or leave them in an unfamiliar setting. Even better, you can book services like these for as long as you need them. It’s not a problem if you want one night off or two weeks; we have the services to cater for any respite period. As well as offering respite aged care in Calamvale, we provide respite services for disability care, dementia care, and even palliative care.
If you feel bad about leaving, you really shouldn’t. The chances are that your loved one will also appreciate the opportunity for a break. Who knows; this could even provide them with a chance to develop a relationship with a carer that could make your life easier in the long-run.
Understanding home care packages
Now you know the private care Calamvale services that we offer, it’s time to consider our home care packages.
