At Home Care Assistance Newcastle, we provide peace of mind and reassurance to families who want their loved ones to have the best of care at all times. We understand that having someone there to provide a much needed helping hand overnight, or even to allow a good night’s sleep improves the life of everyone in the home.
Around the clock care for those with frailty syndrome, mid to late-stage dementia and advanced illnesses is the ideal level of care. Home Care Assistance Newcastle’s reliable, 24/7 Care Workers monitor safety, attend to individual needs, becoming a friend and companion that you can count on.
Research tells us that 80% of older Australians want to age at home, and we know that loss of familiar surroundings can lead to further decline, both emotionally and physically. The need for round the clock support does not have to mean looking to a facility. Optimal 24-hour care can be achieved in a comprehensive, cost effective manner with Home Care Assistance Newcastle.
24-hour in home care allows your loved one to remain in their familiar and comfortable surroundings, while ensuring safety and promoting optimal well-being. In addition, our Care Workers at Home Care Assistance Newcastle provide a personalised plan of care tailored to the status, conditions, preferences, hobbies and lifestyle.
As your loved ones needs change over time, our Care Team will work with you to build the duration and types of home care services required. Depending on the individual, the Care Worker may or may not be needed to stay awake during the evening, so there are different ways in which we can structure support. Examples of this include:
Having one Care Worker each day, which includes a 16-hour day with breaks, followed by 8 hours in-home sleep.
Two Care Workers each day, with each worker covering 12-hour shifts. In this instance, the evening Care Worker stays awake through the night to monitor health and safety.
With 24/7, around-the-clock care, a Home Care Assistance Newcastle Care Worker is always watching over your loved one. Continuously there to offer emotional support, manage the risk of falls and assist in all the 24-hour living.
Our focus is on creating close, trusted relationships with families and designing personalised plans that evolve to meet the needs of everyone over time. Paying for personalised care can be more affordable than you think!
Personal care and assistance can be covered under government programmes. 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.
