Our professional in-home nursing care includes:
Also available is rehabilitation support, emotional support, respite care, emergency assistance and transport assistance to assist you accessing public services and specialists outside of your home.
Taking care of the day-to-day domestic tasks around your home can be challenging when you’re recovering from injury or illness.
Let us worry about general household cleaning tasks such as vacuuming, mopping, bathroom and kitchen cleaning, dusting, laundry, and help with meal preparation while you get back on your feet.
We can also arrange for your lawns, yard, and gardens to be maintained so that when you are recovered everything is in order, ready for you to enjoy.
Even when you are well, maintaining independence is one of the most important priorities for people as they age. We understand how important it is to feel safe, secure, and independent in your own home.
When continuing to live at home is still manageable, but you need a little help, let us work with you put in place an affordable home maintenance plan that will help you remain there.
