Is home care right for me?

Most people want to stay at home as they age. However, a sudden incident or loss can prompt questions surrounding needing additional support and care. Home care services suit many people and can be personalised and coordinated to adapt to your changing needs. Services in a home care package or under Private Care Services can also be designed to help prevent any health deterioration or sudden accidents like a fall that can result in hospitalisation or the need for higher level care. Rest assured, a lot of people manage to age happily at home and the support is available to do this on your own terms. If your goal is to stay healthy and happy at home, then a home care package can assist you to do this but in some situations residential care might suit you better.
