We Treat Every Client As An Individual
At Home Caring, we don’t believe in generic care services. Every person is an individual and, therefore, each client has particular needs. At Home Caring, we work with individuals and their families to design comprehensive and bespoke care packages that enable continued, independent living.
Treating every client as an individual means responding not only to their medical and physical needs but also to their desires and preferences, such as helping in the garden or providing companionship.
We Can Help You Get Funding For Care Provision
If you’re not sure how to apply for government care provision, we can help guide you through the process. First, you’ll need to have a Home Care Assessment to determine the level of support that you’re entitled to. Next, you’ll need to apply for funding to pay a provider, such as Home Caring. Once funding is secured, you can start receiving care. If you’re still waiting for approval, you can begin a private plan with us today and then transition once ACAT approves your status.

What We Do
At Home Caring, we offer a range of domiciliary care services to meet practically any need. In-home care in Auburn helps people to stay in their homes for longer and retain their independence, allowing them to continue with their lives as usual, without the upheaval of moving to new accommodation.
Our home care services – sometimes referred to as social care or in-home care – provide your loved one with all the support they need while they remain living at home. We offer a comprehensive level of support for a wide variety of daily activities, both essential and non-essential.
Activities Of Daily Living
Activities of daily living encompass all of the things that a person needs to do to continue living in their present environment. Activities of daily life include things like walking, going to the bathroom, transferring from one mode of transport to another, dressing, bathing and preparing and eating food.
Instrumental Activities Of Daily Living
Instrumental activities of daily living refer to all of the things that a person needs to be able to do to remain living independently in the community. These include support with managing money, taking medications, shopping for food and clothes, and using the telephone.
Other Activities Of Daily Living
Finally, Home Caring provides support in non-essential activities of daily living too, including helping people with their gardens or spiritual aspects of their lives. Home Caring’s mission is to ensure that people maintain a high standard of living while receiving care and that they can continue to live their lives to the full, regardless of their condition.
At Home Caring, we understand that people need care for different reasons. Care isn’t a generic service that’s the same for everyone: it depends entirely on the needs of the client and their family. That’s why we’re so passionate about what we do: it’s about improving the lives of each person who needs our service.
For this reason, we offer a variety of highly specialised services, depending on need.
Dementia Care In Auburn
People living with dementia have a range of additional care needs and require not only physical but also cognitive support. At Home Caring, our carers help those with dementia in the following ways:
Assistance Shopping. A person with dementia may not be able to go to the store and pick up the groceries they need. We offer help with shopping, organising menus and ensuring that a person remains well-fed and stocked.
- Help Walking The Dog. People living with dementia receive comfort and companionship from their animals. Unfortunately, they may not have the capacity to meet the needs of the animals in their care. At Home Caring, we can walk the dog and feed other pets, enabling a person living with dementia to continue living with animals that are precious to them.
- Gardening. As dementia progresses, gardening can become more difficult. At Home Caring, we can provide support in the garden, helping to prevent it from becoming overrun and enabling clients to continue enjoying their outdoor spaces.
- Preparing Food. It can be difficult for people living with dementia to navigate the kitchen. It can also be dangerous. Home Caring provides support preparing meals, setting tables, and creating new and tasty dishes to enjoy. People with dementia often do not know that they are hungry or thirsty, putting them at higher risk of constipation, urinary tract infections, and headaches. We keep a careful record of what a client eats and drinks to ensure that they receive adequate nutrition.
- Cognitive Support. Dementia is usually a progressive condition, but at Home Caring, we understand how important is it to ensure that a person with the disease maintains their skills for as long as possible. Being able to maintain skills and abilities can help preserve a person’s self-esteem and stimulate their minds healthily and productively.
Dementia care is a highly specialised task. It is also highly varied. Many people in the early stages of dementia need a small amount of support, but as the condition continues, their needs can expand. At Home Caring, we provide the full gamut of support, from the earliest stages of the disease to the final phase, including personal care, medications, and support for family and friends.
Disability Care Auburn
People living with disabilities in Auburn, whether temporary or permanent, can benefit enormously from care. A person may need disability care for the following reasons:
Loss of a limb
- Learning difficulties
- Multiple sclerosis
- Motor neurone disease
People with disabilities face numerous challenges throughout the day with a variety of everyday tasks, including washing, cooking, cleaning, using the toilet, and moving. At Home Caring, we offer home care packages designed to provide support where it is needed, while providing an individual with the maximum independence and freedom possible, despite their condition. At Home Caring, we firmly believe that a person with a disability can lead a happy, satisfying life, full of joy.
Our disability care involves all kinds of different forms of support, including washing, dressing, lifting, help in the bathroom, transferring, and general assistance with chores around the house. Disabilities evolve and change over time, and so we ensure that our service changes too. If your loved one’s condition gets better or worse, our service will adapt to the new circumstances.
Respite Care Auburn
As a professional care provider, we know that family and friends provide a substantial chunk of the total care delivered in Auburn. While family carers invariably offer an exceptional service, at Home Caring, we understand that sometimes they need a break too.
Respite care is a service that allows family carers to take a break and do something else for a time, such as go on holiday or spend time resting. Respite care simply means that the person you care for is looked after by another person. At Home Caring, we do all that we can to ensure a continuation of care so that your loved one can receive the same service while you’re away.
Caring for a loved one is demanding, and everyone needs a break sometimes. Data suggest that between 40 and 70 per cent of family caregivers experience depression at some point in their lives. The average family caregiver spends more than twenty hours per week providing care to their loved one, while as many as one in seven works more than 40 hours per week providing care. At Home Caring, we understand that being a family carer can be exceptionally demanding, both physically and emotionally.
Respite care allows you to do the things that you want to do in life, without having to worry about your loved one’s needs not being met. By using respite care, you can look after yourself better, spend more time exercising, go out with friends, take a vacation, and pursue other activities, like hobbies. You do a great job supporting the person you care for, but there’s always a time and a place to look after yourself too. With Home Caring, you can get the support you need to enjoy other aspects of life, besides your care duties.
Palliative Care Auburn
Many people in Auburn require palliative care – a special kind of care designed for people with life-limiting diagnoses. People who need palliative care include those with “advanced” or “end-stage” conditions, such as stage four cancers, advanced dementia and motor neurone disease, and people with other conditions which may limit their remaining time.
The aims of palliative care are distinct from those of general aged care.
The top priority is managing the physical symptoms of disease, such as pain. At Home Caring, our carers are trained and certified to help clients manage any physical pain, and provide medication. We believe that nobody should have to suffer unnecessarily from a life-limiting disease.
Palliative care also provides emotional and spiritual support. Facing the end of one’ life is a challenging experience for both the affected person and their family. At Home Caring, we understand this, which is why we ensure that our care services offer support to the whole person in addition to their physical needs. We also help to support friends and family through what can be a challenging and trying time.
Finally, people requiring palliative care in Auburn need additional support with personal care, including washing, dressing and eating. Home Caring supplies trained, professional carers with experience in providing a high level of personal service, making life as comfortable as possible.
Palliative care is an excellent adjunct to other therapies a person may receive. Often care is required not only to help manage the illness itself but the effects of medication. Treatments such as radiotherapy or chemotherapy can have damaging side effects which need to be managed in the context of a professional environment.
