Benefits of Home Care when recovering from illness or injury

Benefits of Home Care when recovering from illness or injury

For many older people, the transition from hospital to home can be challenging at times. During the recovery period, many older people often struggle to complete tasks such as driving, household chores and personal hygiene on their own. Therefore, they often require assistance from home care services to assist with some of these tasks.

Some of the tasks that our home care support staff can assist with include

  • Support with taking medication.
  • Assistance with personal care tasks such as showering and dressing.
  • Transport
  • Social supports
  • Meal preparation

For clients that have more complex care needs post-hospital, Home Care Assistance SE Melbourne can also organise for either a registered nurse or an enrolled nurse to provide one-off, short term or regular support as part of our in-home nursing program.

Some of the services that nurses can assist with include.

  • General nursing assessment
  • Wound assessment
  • Diabetes and Insulin Management
  • Continence management and catheter care
  • Allied health referrals

At Home Care Assistance SE Melbourne, we will work with you and your medical team to ensure that you receive the best post-hospital care to suit your needs.

If you would like more information or support when applying for the Home Care Package subsidy, feel free to contact one of our care managers on (03) 9005 1159.

A positive experience of co-ordinated care and provision of support services to meet my high care level of needs.
Great place to work, very supportive and understanding.
We have been with Home Care assistance for last three years. I am impressed by the diversity of the services, they provide.I had few carers but the carer, Shweta, has been coming to us for last two... years, has been a Godsend. She pushes him to do the things which i am unable to. It’s a compliment to Homecare assistance to employ professionals of that standard.No matter what problem I incur, all I have to do is to ring the agency..The eagerness and understanding towards the need of the client is amazing.I would recommend Homecare assistance to anyone and everyone, who requires assistance in all aspects of life.In my case i am grateful of the help i am getting to look after my husband.read more
