Today PM Scott Morrison and Aged Care Minister Richard Colbeck announced
It’s so important to look after your health while remaining at home. But some of our clients are concerned about what to do about in-home aged care services during COVID-19 restrictions.
At Empower Aged Care we’re continuing to help clients access home care services during the current pandemic. In-home services and healthcare are considered essential services and these important services can continue to be delivered during this time.
If you’re wondering if you should continue home care services during coronavirus restrictions, here’s what you need to know.
When you need some help to care for a loved one, you’re probably starting to compare home care and residential aged care options. Let’s take a look at what these mean, to help you consider which one is right for your needs.
Home care services provide practical assistance and / or rehabilitation for an older person at home.
When the time comes when you or a loved one needs care at home, the need for support might be urgent. Yet, if you haven’t planned for it, searching for options, choosing the right home care service provider, and waiting for eligibility can be frustrating and stressful.
It’s worthwhile putting a little thought into what you might do.
Gone are the days where a nursing home was your only option to receive assistance when things got tough.
Now, there is more help available for remaining at home as one ages. The government has introduced Home Care Packages (HCP) to help more people access support.
It was just another shift working as a physiotherapist in a Melbourne emergency department.
When we’re leading all-too-busy lives it’s definitely a win if you can fit in the occasional call or visit to family members. Around this time of year, when there are celebrations and events appearing on the calendar, and life seems even busier, are you starting to get worried about your elderly parents?
