In Home Care Services
Flexible, personal and quality in home care services
We have been the trusted choice of in home care services in the Lower North Shore area since our establishment in 2010.
We focus on developing a thorough understanding of the individual needs and preferences of each client and family. The flexibility and range of services we provide enables us to personalise care to each client to be supportive of their needs and goals. Our consumer directed care business model sets us apart from other organisations and is the reason that Home Instead Senior Care has been so successful.
A responsive and coordinated approach to in home care
We are dedicated to providing the best in home care possible and understand that clients’ needs can change. We keep communication open through regular contact with family and feedback from CAREGivers to ensure we can respond to any changes in a client’s care requirements. We also conduct regular quality assurance visits to ensure we are meeting clients’ needs and expectations.
Types of services
We provide a broad range of services to help people maintain their independence in their own home.
Our CAREGiver’s provide considerate, private, respectful assistance with personal in home care. Personal care services can help one to feel their privacy and dignity is respected and maintained, and can greatly improve one’s confidence living independently.
Personal care may include washing and showering, dressing, grooming, personal hygiene, toileting and incontinence care, escorting to appointments or social outings, assisting with communication and dementia care.
In Home Help
In Home Help services include everyday household tasks. The tasks of every-day living and home maintenance can quickly become difficult as we get older and having a bit of help each week can go a long way to help people feel comfortable and happy at home.
There are several different tasks that could be completed during a home help service such as light housekeeping, companionship and meal preparation. We provide general home help also which includes running errands, appointment reminders, travel assistance, medication reminders, assisting with pet care and monitoring home maintenance.
Overnight In Home Care
We can also provide overnight care. An example of an overnight arrangement is if someone is having troubles at night, a CAREGiver can come in at 8pm and stay there till 8am the next morning.
An overnight stay will typically involve getting the client ready for bed, providing any assistance needed during the night, getting ready the next morning and making breakfast. Overnight care can be a good option for people with a loved one who requires assistance during the night but need to rest themselves.
24-Hour In Home Care & Live-In Care
Sometimes a family member may require someone to be there at all hours. This can be especially helpful for those recovering from illness or experiencing late stage dementia.
We can provide highly trained, trustworthy CAREGivers to assist 24 hours a day, 7 days a week so that help is always on hand.
Home Instead Senior Care partner with hospitals in the region such as Greenwich Hospital. Home Instead Senior Care can do a variety of things for the client prior to palliative care being required, but the tasks are non-medical. One of the pamphlets that Home Instead Senior Care provide includes “Dying at home” which contains useful information about this stage - the resources are listed above under 'Brochures'.
Some other resource titles listed above, include: “When seniors say no”, “The 50-50 rule”, “The home care solution”, “Making home safe for seniors”, “Dementia”, “Nutrition for seniors” and “Caring and arthritis”.
