At Home Care Assistance, you and your family’s health, wellness and comfort are our number one priority.
It’s our mission to ensure the highest quality standards of specialty caregiving and assistance for you and your loved ones. We’ve partnered with the Parkinson’s Foundation to allow us to incorporate the latest research into our customised plans for those living with this disease. This partnership gives us access to cutting-edge breakthroughs in medication and treatments, which we can then discuss with our families.
We understand that living with Parkinson’s disease can be difficult, both for the individual and the family. As a chronic, neurodegenerative disease it can be as emotionally difficult as it is physically. At Home Care Assistance, our philosophy is based on a “family first” approach to the way we treat and serve our families.
Our transportation assistance is a valuable aspect of our Parkinson’s care. Driving is often a challenge and a safety concern for those living with the disease. Home Care Assistance provides transportation to appointments, the shops as well as other locations and commitments. This takes a huge weight off the shoulders of family members and allows them to minimise disruption to their own schedules.
Eating a healthy diet is important for those with Parkinson’s disease. A clean and nutrient dense diet is critical because it helps strengthen muscles and bones while reducing muscle atrophy and excess fat accumulation. Home Care Assistance can help prepare healthy meals that will provide your loved one the nutrition he or she needs to maintain optimal health and vitality.
When someone is living with Parkinson’s disease, it becomes difficult to accomplish some of the more common tasks we’re used to doing on our own. We provide assistance with these daily tasks while providing guidance and support to maintain independence.
Our Carers keep a sharp eye on the clock and ensure that your family member or loved one always gets the correct medication on time.
Our skilled and specially trained Parkinson’s disease Carers are sensitive to an individuals needs to move and be independent. They provide mobility support in instances when extra help is needed because of muscular stiffness, shakes or tremors.
One of the most valuable experiences that comes out of our program is the lifelong friendships and support that is developed between individuals and Carers. Having someone around to engage with socially is an essential part of good mental health and we take pride in the relationships that we create.
Parkinson’s disease can be emotionally exhausting and physically demanding, which is why we offer support to individuals and their families through our hands-on care management. At Home Care Assistance, our emphasis on balanced caregiving drives our continued work towards providing a complete and holistic approach to managing and improving the lives of those living with Parkinson’s disease.
Our specially trained Parkinson’s Carers have the vision, knowledge and know how to plan ahead and to see things before they happen.
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.
