We care for people living in their own home and for 25% of people aged 85 years and over, their home is a Nursing Home. ¹
That’s why their family or Enduring Guardian, request that we visit to provide an extra level of attention, service and care to improve their quality of life.
- Is your Elder losing weight and not eating their meals?
- Is your Elder not walking enough and losing mobility?
- Is your Elder being labelled with negative descriptions such as ‘challenging’, ‘having behaviours of concern’, ‘having behaviours that challenge’, ‘acting up’, ‘acting out’, ‘as a wanderer’ or ‘as a screamer’? Your Elder is probably just trying to express his/her feelings or reacting to the unhappy and stressful situation they are in. Perhaps some ‘one on one’ time is needed where our Caregiver really listens to your Elder. Perhaps a regular outing or visit will make them feel more contented.
- Is your Elder depressed? We can provide them with a regular outing to look forward to, such as taking them:
❤ to visit a dear friend or family member
❤ for a walk along the boulevard
❤ to their church
❤ to attend a good friend’s funeral
❤ to a cafe with a view
❤ to put their feet in salt water
❤ to stroll around a nursery
❤ to watch their grandchild play sport
❤ to attend a grandchild’s wedding
❤ to attend a grandchild’s birthday part
Physical and emotional wellbeing
For clients who are not well enough to leave the nursing home, we can massage their hands and assist them with grooming.
We can read the newspaper to them, read favourite poems, book or the bible or sing with them. We can help them to stay in touch with family and friends by writing notes/letters/cards then post for them.
