What is Home Care

Home care provides support with daily activities, so people can live independently in their own home. It may involve caring for someone who has just come home from hospital, someone with a disability, or someone who is too frail to manage by themselves. Home care covers a wide range of tasks, from grocery shopping and housekeeping, to transport and social activities.

Personal Care

You’ll help clients with personal grooming, such as bathing, shaving, toileting, getting dressed and taking medication.

Domestic Assistance

You’ll help clients around the home with things they can’t manage on their own, like cleaning, washing, ironing and preparing meals.

Social Support

You’ll spend time with clients and provide them with company and support, or take them to social activities in the community.

Travel and Transport

You’ll take clients to medical appointments and social outings, as well as help them move around the house and garden.
