Getting the right help at home is crucial for older people to be able to stay living at home independently for as long as they can.
No two people have the same needs. Some may need help with transport to medical appointments or to the supermarket, others might need home maintenance, gardening, or cleaning assistance, or help with showering, dressing and getting ready for the day.
Capecare Home Care Manager Rachel Meares said trust and continuity between the client and service provider was important in giving older people confidence to stay in their home with external support.
“Recognising that you need help and then navigating home care and aged care services can be tricky,” she said.
“Once Government Home Care Package funding is approved, you want to get straight onto obtaining the help you need and not have to wait any longer than necessary.
“We can help clients through the process of applying for eligibility testing, and can then help them make a plan to suit their individual needs,” she said.
“Our home and community services provide a range of personalised support to people living at home, as well as respite for carers.
“We can provide half day, day or overnight respite at our Busselton Wellness Centre and Cottage Respite.
“Should the client’s needs increase over time, we can then provide continuity of care through our Busselton and Dunsborough residential care facilities.
“This offers great comfort to our clients, knowing they will receive the same high level of care across Capecare’s services provided by a team they have grown to know and trust,” Rachel said.Capecare is a local, independent not-for-profit service provider, supporting the community both at home and in their Busselton and Dunsborough aged care facilities, providing a continuum of care.
