After surgery, during chemotherapy or radiation treatments, our hospital sitters can monitor and provide companionship, run errands or seek medical attention. They also enable family members to go home and rest, knowing your loved one won’t be alone.
Our Cancer Care can make the transition home and recovery from sessions easier and more comfortable. Enabling oncology patients to focus solely on their recovery, a Home Care Assistance Carer can prepare meals, do light housework, help with bathing, dressing and personal hygiene, give medication reminders, provide companionship, help with exercise and provide transportation to and from doctors’ appointments or treatments. Carers promote recovery by reducing stress, fatigue and depression.
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.
