CARERS WEEK 2016: Sunday 16th October to Saturday 22nd October 2016
BABY boomers are predicted to have a huge impact on aged care over the next 20 years, with demand set to shift from care homes to in-home care.
“Home support is a critical part of the health and social care system,” 360 Medical senior coordinator Evelyn Reid says.
“Many of us are living longer and enjoy generally good health, but need that little bit of help to continue staying in our own home, whether it’s with household chores, getting out and about, or chronic disease care.
“There are also people in the community who are disabled, or have dementia and are in need of personal, nursing and more complex care.”
The national home support group operates throughout the metropolitan and regional area, with strong networks in allied and primary health, including GPs, diabetes educators, podiatrists, dietitians and chronic disease nurses.
