We understand it can be challenging to ask for help with personal tasks such as showering, grooming and dressing. Our caring, qualified staff provide personal care services with dignity and respect, and support you in any way possible to maintain your confidence and independence.
We help you manage various health conditions within the comfort and familiarity of your own home. Some of our most sought-after services include dressing changes, medication monitoring, mobility assistance and continence management. We also coordinate additional care services with qualified health professionals.
Sometimes it’s the smallest things that make the biggest difference. Our focus is on making your life easier by helping with day-to-day activities such as cleaning, laundry, ironing, changing sheets and grocery shopping.
Let us relieve the stress associated with home maintenance. Sit back and relax as we coordinate regular mowing and gardening, household repairs and external cleaning. We also complete in-home assessments and install mobility aides such as handrails and ramps.
We help you get ‘out and about’ and stay mobile — whether it’s to and from medical appointments, the shops, church or a social occasion. Enjoy the comfort and security of one of our air-conditioned vehicles, or if you wish to travel independently, we can set up a taxi account on your behalf.
Companionship and community are vital for personal wellbeing. We are pleased to work with you to find activities of interest. We can also keep you company at home and connect you with local organisations or clubs. Joining in the activities offered by St Vincent’s Care Services communities is another option many of our clients choose, with escorted outings to gardens, the theatre or cinema, shopping destinations and community events on offer.
Exercise and rehabilitation
We help you maintain your fitness, or get back on your feet after surgery, illness or injury. Our staff work with you and your family or carer to develop a tailored program and coordinate specialist services such as physiotherapy, exercise physiology and occupational therapy.
We understand caring for a loved one can be difficult. As a carer, whether you’re unwell yourself, going on a holiday or just in need of a well-earned break, our respite service provides short-term options for support and care of your loved one. You have peace of mind knowing your loved one is receiving the highest standard of care — either at home or in one of our St Vincent’s Care Services communities.
