By providing continuous, one-on-one Palliative care at home, our skilled Care Workers provide support and companionship, ensuring optimal comfort and dignity during final stages, while bringing peace of mind and respite for the family.
One-on-one companionship in the familiar environment of the home helps bring essential comfort and peace to an individual in this stage of life.
Close attention to personal care is of utmost importance. Our Care Workers manage frequent bed turning to minimise bed sores and ensure comfort is achieved as much as possible.
Simply having someone there with your loved one around-the-clock, or on an as-needed basis, provides much needed comfort and compassion.
It’s common that one’s appetite will decrease, so it’s important to maintain the nutritional value of the food your loved one will consume. Our Care Workers are trained to prepare healthy meals based on the individuals needs and preferences.
We are committed to a dignified palliative experience in which we help people stay clean, groomed and maintain their hygiene.
Palliative patients can often feel, and become depressed or even experience feelings of abandonment. Our Care Workers know how to provide the emotional support needed at this time.
Our Care Workers support the family and any medical team involved by providing status updates on the individuals condition.
Our Care Workers and Palliative Care team are experienced in providing appropriate support and resources to families after their loved one passes.
At Home Care Assistance, we provide customised care to older Australians so they can live happier, healthier lives at home. We champion the needs of seniors with a positive, empowering approach to ageing that celebrates independence, dignity and quality of life. Our team of care workers receive exceptional training, support and resources to deliver an unmatched care experience.
Our focus is on creating close, trusted relationships with families and designing personalised care plans that evolve as our clients’ needs change over time. Paying for personalised care can be more affordable than you think!
Personal care and assistance can be covered under government programmes such as Home Care Packages and Commonwealth Health Support Programme (CHSP). Please note, there may be a gap and small contribution to pay, as the Australian Government may not fund the full cost of the program.
