We believe that the client should always have the option of whether to move into a retirement village or frail care, or to stay in their own home.
There are a number of reasons why home nursing / home care is beneficial both for the elderly client and for family members.
Home care professionals are able to be there when you aren’t. If you live at a distance from your elderly relative, home care gives you peace of mind knowing that your loved one is being well cared for in the familiar surroundings of their own home.
Home care services allow the client to receive help with personal care and other activities that comprise daily life.
As people get older they are more likely to have problems with nutrition and diet. A home carer is able to ensure that the client is eating a balanced diet and receiving any necessary supplements.
Multiple prescriptions and medications can prove very confusing to the elderly. Your carer can assist with proper medication management.
Aging adults lead far healthier lives if they have social interaction. A home care professional can provide companionship and friendship that helps the elderly deal with possible loneliness.
Carers are able to assist with light household tasks like washing and vacuuming thus relieving the elderly of this struggle.
Not all clients require care night and day but do benefit from a carer on the premises 24hrs a day. For this reason we encourage clients to look at the option of having a carer live in the home as a wonderful support and presence.
Home care is an affordable alternative to care in hospital or another facility.
Cape Care provides a friendly and personal care service that enables the frail, elderly or disabled client to continue to live independently in his/her own home. Depending on the individual needs and health needs of the client, care may be provided on a full or part time basis ie. from 3 hours to 24 hours per day. The choice of whether to remain at home or not is every person’s right.
