WOULD you like to age independently in your own home? This is a common question asked by many seniors.
The Australian Bureau of Statistics (2016) reported 16 per cent of Brisbane’s bayside population is 65 years or over.
But growing old in our own homes comes with challenges such as activities surrounding daily living, maintaining the property, loss in mobility and strength, personal care needs, the need for companionship, cooking a meal, driving to and from shops and setting appointments which can become more and more difficult.
A helping hand can make a huge difference to assist with these daily chores.
The recent government changes to Consumer Directed Care now allows everyone to choose their own provider for their in-home care services. This means empowering the care recipient to choose who they want to assist them with what they need to make their life easier enabling them to enjoy their golden years in their own home.
Consumer Directed Care deregulated the aged care market and created an opportunity for new providers in the market. This means a more competitive market, allowing better quality of care and more hours of care being delivered to the person in need.
One such new entrant is Right at Home, a provider with more than 500 offices globally and a 20 plus year track record.
Right at Home Australia launched five years ago and recently opened their 16th office in Manly.
The process of applying for a government funded home care package can be very daunting.
Right at Home Brisbane Bayside will assist you throughout the journey. From applying for a home care package, to creating a fully customised care plan to match you, or your loved one, with the most appropriate carer will ensure you are looked after in the best possible way.
