Are you concerned about your parents living at home?

Are you unsure where to turn to next?

Australia is known for its incredibly hot weather, especially in the summer. As we grow older, our bodies find it more difficult to regulate heat as efficiently as we did when we’re young.

Growing older forces change, especially when it comes to caring for our loved ones. We understand the importance of ensuring that your close friend or family member receives care and companionship that both supports and improves their quality of life.

Relationship-based home care is an innovative type of care designed to deliver impact, not just inputs. It is organised around the needs of the care recipient and his or her family, rather than around the completion of a predefined set of tasks.

Being a carer for a loved one can be extremely demanding, stressful and appear never-ending. Respite care provides carers with a short-term break from their caring role.

Dementia causes physical changes to the brain and can alter a person’s ability to think straight and perform everyday tasks. So when it comes to the care and management of dementia, it is important to have the right support in place to keep the person safe and healthy.

Caring for someone with dementia can be an extremely challenging time. But as a family member, we know you’re there offering unconditional love, care and support to your loved one from the very beginning, no matter how difficult it gets.

In Australia, over 90% of people want to continue living in the comfort of their own home as they age. It has always been our mission at Home Instead Senior Care to support older people with living independently in their own homes for as long as possible.
