Getting the care you need on your terms

Absolute Care & Health on 6 September 2019

When it comes to receiving in-home aged care, you should always have the highest expectations. As we grow older, it's important that we continue to reevaluate what's right for us, especially when it involves supporting our health and wellbeing at home.

In-home aged care should always be provided with the highest level of service. If you're looking to re-evaluate your in-home aged care provider, you should consider a provider that offers an all-rounded service that includes:

  • Clinical nursing services
  • Personal care services
  • Domestic support
  • Personalised care

Absolute Care and Health is committed to offering you the best possible in-home aged care. From health and wellbeing services, to help around the house, we place an emphasis on high quality, tailored caring. Contact us to learn more.

Attentive in-home care services

The first priority of in-home aged care should be to support the health of care recipients. No matter what your age, health status, or background is, you are entitled to quality healthcare treatment. If you are paying for this at home, you should expect the very best.

When evaluating your care provider, here are some things to consider:

  • Customer focus. You should be able to choose the type of support that suits your lifestyle and your personal needs.
  • Communication. Attentive care providers will answer all your questions, clearly and effectively. Home visits are a great way to discuss your care needs in a comfortable environment before signing-up.
  • Range of services. Quality aged services value quality of life. Their all-encompassing service should provide: nursing care, personal care, domestic cleaning, and gardening. 

The Absolute difference

Absolute Care & Health offers a fully comprehensive in-home health care service to patients. Depending on your situation and the advice of your medical professionals, we can offer you the following health care services in the comfort of your own home:

  • Nursing care to provide the basics of wound care, medication dispensary, and other clinical treatments.
  • After hospital care to ease your transition back into your home life.
  • Respite care to assist your family carers when they are unavailable or need a break.
  • Palliative care to provide you with comfort and support when you need it most.
  • 24-hour care to address complex medical care requirements around the clock.
  • Dementia care to ensure you can continue to live your usual life and minimise impact.

Personal care services

Having a comfortable home life is incredibly important as we age. Personal care services are services outside of clinical health care that support your wellbeing. These include bathing, using the bathroom, and personal hygiene—the day to day things that are sometimes taken for granted and which don't require clinical nursing support.

Personal care services are an important part of in-home aged care and must be provided by properly trained and certified staff to ensure your safety. Without a qualified aged care professional:

  • The presence of water, slippery fluids, sharp objects, and tiles can turn daily bathing into a hazardous fall risk.
  • Failing personal hygiene can affect overall health as well, leading to oral health problems, infections, other medical emergencies.

The Absolute difference

We believe that the best in-home aged care is a union of understanding the recipients needs and attentive personal care. As part of our commitment to offering the highest possible service, our team of in-home aged care professionals can help you:

  • Get dressed and ready for your day.
  • Manage your personal hygiene and showering.
  • Address toileting and incontinence issues.
  • With mobility around your home and community.

Domestic support

Having a tidy and well functioning home is very important for your peace of mind. However, when receiving in-home aged care, the menial, but necessary tasks in daily life are often overlooked by care providers.

Your in-home aged care provider should offer domestic support to address the many tasks around the home:

  • There are many household chores which need to be completed daily, including dishes, sweeping, and general tidying up.
  • More strenuous tasks need to be completed at least weekly, and include laundry, cleaning kitchens and bathrooms, and mopping floors.

The Absolute difference

As well as personal care services, Absolute Care & Health offers a range of domestic support services to help you around the home.

  • Household cleaning and gardening to ensure that your home is always well maintained
  • Laundry services to keep your wardrobe and bed linen looking and feeling fresh.
  • Grocery shopping, cooking, and meal preparation tailored to your preferences
  • Home maintenance to help address general household problems that may arise.

Personalised care

The best in-home aged care experience comes when you are well looked after and comfortable. For this reason, personalised care should be a non-negotiable when reevaluating your care provider.

Personalised care is made up of three important factors:

  • Holistic care services that involve nursing, personal care, and domestic support.
  • Matched caregiving ensures that you are always comfortable with who is in your home.
  • Nursing care when clinical health care such as wound dressing or medication is needed.

  • Personality matching by getting to know you.
