Personal Care Program
Community Based Support's Personal Care Program provides a range of personal services including dressing, showering, mobility assistance, medication prompting and meals. These services aim to assist older people, people living with disability, and unpaid carers to remain at home, leading independent lives.
Personal care services can include:
• Dressing and undressing.
• Monitoring and assistance with some medication.
• Assistance with mobility, prescribed exercises and therapy programs.
• Assistance with eating.
• Wiping over bathroom after use and light duties such as assisting with a load of washing, light vacuum and bed-making (depending on time).
• Safety monitoring equipment.
Community Based Support can help with equipment that assist clients to undertake personal care tasks independently.
Potential clients can contact Community Based Support for more information. Family members/carers, medical practitioners, health professionals or other service providers may refer on the client’s behalf with the client’s consent.
