Home Support

home support client and worker

Our home support workers provide the care and support you need to make living independently at home a bit easier.

Home support is for clients who need additional support to live at home independently. We support frail elderly seniors, people recovering from surgery or injury, people with cognitive impairment,  terminally ill clients and children and adults with special needs

We use a personal support care plan that reflects your individual needs, whether this is personal or hygienic care such as bathing and grooming, homemaking tasks such as cooking, laundry or light housekeeping, or assistance with getting in and out of bed or walking, help with eating or exercise, medication supervision or catheter and colostomy care. We can perform environmental risk assessments to make sure your home is as safe as possible. 

At the same time, we also provide companionship and conversation and report on any changing needs so these can be included in the care plan. Our home support services provide respite for caregivers, allowing them to tend to other responsibilities outside the home and preventing caregiver burnout.
