Your guide to choosing a home care provider
With so much information out there, it can be daunting when looking for the right home care provider for you or your loved one, says Southern Plus General Manager, Service Delivery Jane O’Halloran.
“Be clear about your expectations and when you’re making any enquiries, don’t be afraid to tell the aged care provider exactly what you want,” she said.
Ms O’Halloran said other things to consider include working with the provider to maximise your budget and get value for money, having a good connection with your case manager regarding your health and wellness goals and ensuring the organisation provides a full range of flexible services in the home and within the community.
“When I speak to clients, one of the main things they tell me is that they want and need flexibility with their home care services. You don’t want to be locked into contracts whereby you’re paying for services that you don’t want or need.”
Ensuring providers offer allied health care such as physiotherapy, podiatry or occupational therapy can ensure clients are able to stay at home for as long as possible.
“Staying at home as you age means you should look for a provider that offers a broad range of services to support your health and wellness goals so you can stay independent and do the things you want and enjoy.”
