It’s the number to call to find out more about these services.
I am a Family Physician in Victoria and have performed some extra work with ‘Elderly Outreach Services’…I know of no other person I would rather have take care of my own kin should they need it. Jo (owner, Care & Company) is an experienced, reliable, personable and trustworthy individual to her clients and she has my highest recommendation. You will find none better!
Whether providing home support or companion care, our workers develop relationships with our seniors thereby supplying them with the much needed consistency of care and support they crave. Some of the things you could receive help for are meals, medications, driving to appointments and cleaning.
With live-in care, we’ll help you or your parents live comfortably in their own homes. You’ll get the support you need – attention during the night, help getting ready in the morning, meals, light housekeeping and medications. You or your loved ones will be able to keep the lifestyle you love for as long as possible.
Maybe you work and want someone to take your mom or dad to coffee, the movies, a drive or to feed the ducks in Beacon Hill Park. Or maybe you’ve lost a spouse and miss having someone to do things with. You’ll find our companions friendly and easy to talk to. They’re interested in hearing about what matters to you, and learning about travels and children. Some people schedule visits several times a week for their parents. Others schedule a weekly outing for themselves.
Are you looking after someone with long-term or hands-on disease? You know all too well that being a caregiver wears you down. Make sure you get some care yourself … so that you’ll be there to help your loved one. Most clients schedule a weekly or twice-weekly visit so that they can go to the spa, have lunch with friends, read a book behind a closed and locked door, or do something that relaxes and revitalizes them. It’s important to have rest – after all, the Bible records that even Jesus understood the necessity and took time away.
Have you been in a motor vehicle accident? Perhaps you’ve injured your back or are just too busy with work. We’ll take over your cleaning chores so that you don’t have to worry. Our cleaners LOVE making homes sparkle. They’ll even fold your laundry if you want.
If you’re not driving anymore, it can be difficult getting to medical appointments. We have drivers that can take you to your medical appointments, and also go in and take notes on what the doctor said if that’s what you’d like. Often, people request medical transportation for their parents, in addition to their regular companion or home care visits.
Make sure you heal faster by getting temporary home support. Our care aides can help you with cooking, cleaning, driving you to medical appointments, getting groceries, giving you medications, and whatever else you need to speed up your healing process.
Are you caring for someone with Alzheimers or dementia? Or does a family member have memory issues but insists on living on their own? We’ve helped many families in Victoria care for their loved ones by providing dependable and caring home care.
