Does your parent want to stay in their own home, however you are increasingly worried about their safety and health?

  • News

So your parent is determined to remain in their own home.  This story is played across Australia in many homes every day of the week.  But there may be help at hand.  If your parent can be assisted by carers or therapists to come into their home, they can increase their ability to live safely, happily and well in their own home for many with the introduction of caring, highly quality and customised care.    Safety in the kitchen, bathroom and getting out and about are some of the higher risk activities for our older folk.   An Occupational Therapist can make suggestions about ways to make the home safer and in the community to maintain those important social networks and reduce risk of falling and subsequent injury.  Physiotherapy can improve balance, gain fitness and confidence with moving about and doing tasks for themselves.  Other therapies may include: Speech Pathology for swallowing difficulties; Dietetics for ensuring diet and food intake is as good as it can be depending on health issues; Nursing for general health assessment and continence management.  These therapies are shown to work in enabling people to remain at home.
