There are many reasons for wanting to be cared for at home, or to have a friend or family member receive the care they need at home. Care at home allows people to enjoy the comfort, privacy and convenience of home and can be tailored to the unique circumstances of each individual.
For seniors, home care can also be a cost-effective alternative to residential care. Depending on your individual circumstances, the financial benefits of in-home care over residential aged care can be significant.
Engaging a home care provider with comprehensive service offerings can help you and your family retain choices, enabling you to stay at home longer and enjoy a better quality of life. Vitalis Health & Home Care provides a one-stop shop for all your home care needs, from carers to help with everyday needs, right up to high-level ‘Hospital in the Home’ services.
Although many people think home care is only about providing senior care, this is not the case. For example, home care can assist a young disabled individual, or a patient who has been discharged from hospital but who has not fully recovered.
Home care helps relieve families of the full responsibility of caring for their loved one, giving them peace of mind knowing they are in safe hands.
