Caring isn’t always easy. In fact, while care is always driven by love and compassion, it can also place a huge strain on one’s physical and mental wellbeing. It can be stressful, tiring and emotionally demanding. When you care for a loved one with a disability or an incurable condition, it can be an extremely demanding and turbulent experience. It is not only logistically complicated, but emotionally draining, too.
Rendering what care you can, alongside your other work and family commitments can be a huge challenge. It can tax even the most patient, giving and selfless of us. Fortunately, there is help. At Home Caring Lifestyle and Health Solutions we aim to provide quality care for the people who mean the most to you.
We understand that for some patients, residential care may not be the best solution for their convalescence or quality of life. That’s why we work collaboratively with patients, their loved ones and teams of expert caregivers to provide home care to patients in Malvern and other suburbs all over Melbourne.
Bringing quality care to the people of Malvern
Home care is often the best solution for patients’ healing and wellbeing. We find that those with serious or debilitating conditions often prefer to remain in their Malvern homes rather than receive residential care. And we can see why. It’s a beautiful and charming neighbourhood. A quiet and picturesque suburb, Malvern is the perfect place for those with a wide range of care needs to relax, convalesce and put themselves first while they receive the quality care that they deserve.
Malvern is a suburb rich in verdant gardens and greenery, white picket fences and beautiful homes. Perhaps that’s why it’s such a perfect choice for families and retirees. With tree lines streets, quaint cafes and sumptuous restaurants, we can’t think of a better place to relax and recover.
When someone close to us requires professional care, it’s up to those around them to afford them the best quality of life possible. Where better to bring them that than in familiar and beautiful surroundings of their home suburb? This is exactly why we believe so passionately in delivering quality care solutions to patients in their own homes.
Although we are now also able to offer residential care at our new facility, we recognise that for many of our patients, home care is more conducive to their physical and mental wellbeing and their quality of life.
Our passion lies in bringing quality home care to the people of Malvern, affording them every comfort and the utmost dignity so that they can enjoy the very best quality of life, no matter what condition may afflict them.
You’ll find that we offer outstanding home care for patients with a wide range of conditions including…
Age and Dementia Care
Those with dementia and other age related conditions have a range of complex and highly individual needs. We know just how difficult it can be to provide the high intensity levels of care that your loved ones with dementia may need. We completely understand that dementia care can also be extremely emotionally traumatic for the caregiver. Those with dementia can often experience lapses in memory, mood swings and patterns of aggressive behaviour which can be extremely upsetting for those who love them most.
The good news, however, is that you are not alone. Our highly skilled team are just a phone call away. We can administer effective and comprehensive care solutions to patients with dementia. Our skilled care professionals bring compassion, professionalism and positivity to patients’ homes, and we take the time to match each caregiver to the patient’s needs and personality. We offer a patient and understanding service to dementia sufferers to help ease the anxiety and stress which can often come with the condition.
We are on hand to help with every aspect of dementia care from providing Reminiscence Therapy and Validation Therapy to simply helping patients with the day to day duties around the house like cleaning, tidying and cooking. We can also help patients with their more sensitive needs such as toileting, washing and dressing affording them dignity and privacy as well as care and compassion.
With our help, patients with age related conditions, including dementia, can stay independent for longer and enjoy the very best quality of life. Those closest to them also enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing that their loved ones with dementia are as healthy, happy and well cared for as possible.
There are a wide range of disabilities which can prevent those affected from living a normal life. Fortunately, our comprehensive range of care solutions can help them to get that sense of normality back while also allowing them to remain independent, happy and healthy in their own homes. Consider us your one stop shop for disability care in Malvern. We have decades of experience working with patients with a range of debilitating conditions including;
- Motor Neurone Disease – We help patients with all variants of this condition to cope with their increasingly complex needs. We help patients with all variants of this condition including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Progressive Bulbar Palsy (PBP), Progressive Muscular Atrophy (PMA) and Primary Lateral Sclerosis. We understand how difficult and frustrating this condition can be both for sufferers and those closest to them. That’s why we provide them with a range of personal and medical care solutions from the comfort of their own home.
- Huntington’s Disease – Huntington’s Disease is a sadly incurable hereditary condition which, like MND can be increasingly debilitating for those affected. A diagnosis can be devastating to patients and their families. Yet, it’s important to note that those with Huntington’s Disease can still lead rich and happy lives with the right care. We provide expert practical and personal care solutions to patients as well as advising them on how best to manage their changing medical needs.
- Arthritis – Millions of Australians suffer from Arthritis. It is a painful and restrictive condition that can seriously impair one’s mobility. Fortunately, the right care can provide a world of difference. We are able to make the lives of those with arthritis easier, happier and more comfortable while allowing them to remain as independent as possible. We provide caring, highly knowledgeable and dignified care for patients with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and even juvenile arthritis.
Being a primary caregiver for someone you love is a highly rewarding pursuit that can make you feel closer to them than ever. However, it’s okay for caregivers to admit that it can take a toll. It can often be a demanding and complicating life that can become detrimental to your physical and psychological well being. Even the most dedicated caregiver can benefit from a brief respite every now and then. That’s why we offer a wide range of flexible respite care services to give you as much or as little time as you need to yourself.
Post Operative Care
A serious surgical procedure can help to save a life… But many operations take a long time to recover from fully. While patients convalesce their habits and lifestyle can either be conducive to a quick recovery or actually impede it. With this in mind, we provide extensive post-operative care for patients recovering from surgery.
We provide a comprehensive program of post operative care encompassing everything from pain medication management to ensuring that the patient enjoys a healthy diet that facilitates quicker healing. We also help out around the home in whatever way is necessary to ensure that the patient is able to safely and completely recover free from stress and pain.
Although huge advances have been made in medical care over the past few decades, there remain some conditions from which it is impossible to recover. Yet, that doesn’t mean that patients can’t lead rich, full and highly enjoyable lives. This is why palliative care is such an incredibly important discipline. Where a condition cannot be cured, even if it is terminal, the right care can deliver quality living to the patients who need it the most.
