If you are finding that you need a bit of help at home, but don’t want to move into a nursing home just yet, then you may be wondering what your options are.There are a few different types of care available, and it can be tough to decide which one is right for you. In this blog post, we will discuss Olivet’s Home Care program and our Day Centre program.
Wondering about Home Care Packages? Here’s a breakdown
HCP’s are a government-funded program that allow older Australians to access home care services. This helps them to continue living in their own homes rather than moving into aged care facilities. It provides the support needed to help you live the life you want and increase your health and wellbeing as well as giving loved ones a break.
Aged care service models share the goal of helping their elderly patients remain independent and connected to their community.
HCP is for those with low and high-level care needs, and clients must undergo an assessment by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) to qualify for this program and assess which level of support is required.
HCPs offer a larger range of services, including personal care, domestic care, taking you shopping, helping you cook a meal, providing transport to appointments and many more thing things. At Olivet, we can help.
Olive Grove – Our Day Centre Program
The Day Centre programs we run at Olive Grove House are designed to help elderly Australians receiving home care support get out and about, socialise, and enjoy a range of activities and outings in a safe and secure environment.
Research shows that social participation, even if it’s just for a few hours a day, can improve mood, cognition, and memory recall for aged persons. Consistent social interactions are also associated with healthy behaviours and can help to reduce the chance of stress and isolation.
At Olivet, we recognise the importance of friendships in the journey towards aging. Our Day Centre programs provide opportunities for forming new friendships, and our supportive environment helps those friendships to blossom naturally.
